Review Date: Nov 15, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: very sharp at f/8 with the 5D MK2 body especially.very usable picture at the 400mm.Solid construction.Good for body building!!if you carry with you all day :)
Cons:
Heavy!!!inside Dust Collector.if you.not very sharp image after350mm.

100-4000L is quality piece of glass.With 5D MK2 full frame camera it is dream.very sharp at F/8 till 350mm.and 400mm is very acceptable images can give.But sadly it is not good with the 7D!!.I have 5D MK2 and 7D.I don't know why it is just not giving any good results with the 7D!!even not good at the bright sunlight.
But with the 5DMK2 is hole another story.Glass is giving extreme good performence even hand hold at 350mm at the dusk!.
My friend has 7D and we try it in his camera.very bad results either.
I highly recommend every one with the full frame sensor camera.
Also 100-400 is flexible at the range.You can make wild life pictures also landscape pictures with it.You don't need all the time wide lenses for landscape photo.tyr it you will fall in love with it.especially with this price....
if you buy as a second hand look very well front glass inside.you can find incredible amounf of dust and particule!!as a negative side because it not at all weather proof or something like that.it is just a dust collector.We hate you push and pull zoom design
Good Luck..
