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

ef100_400l_1_
Review Date: Sep 25, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Range, sharp, colours, image stabilzer, hand held
Cons:
NONE

Coming from a 50- 500mm
i could'nt believe what i was missing out! the sharpness was incredible and the colours were much better.

and the best thing is 95 per cent of shots i are perfct compared to my bigma where only 50 per cent of " HANDHELD" shots i could use

This is a must have lense, the range is incredible also.

you wont be dissapointed.

Pros: Great colours, love the range, possible handheld shop, sharp images before 450mm
Cons:
heavy

for what you pay this lense is incredible. yes hand held shots are difficult due to the weight but still possible at zoom under 400mm and when placed on a tripod or even leaned on your window the shots are sharp.

dont compare it to the canon 100 to 400 because the canon is better.

but for value for money, this lense will not dissapoint in good light as i find the sweet spot is f8 ss at 1/1000 in good light,
but you need to around with aperture and ss to get the bet out of the zoom. i just recently went to the kruger national park and i got incredible shot with this lense.

yes a IS would be nice but then the price wouldnt be nice.

this is a great lense i highly recomend it if the canon L lense is just to expensive.
