Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM

ef100_400l_1_
Review Date: Nov 21, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: extremely versatile focal range, sharp (yep, that's right), IS, push-pull allows for fast framing of moving subjects, best bang for the buck
Cons:
the near-far switch is painful (remembering it's on is painful, also being similar to the af/mf switch and placed somewhere not easy to be quickly reached makes it even more painful) , the lens hood could use a latch to lock it in place, some lenses' plastic baffle ring inside the lens come unglued (cheap glue) - i have seen this happen on two different lenses bought 4 yrs apart
