Top customer reviews
The variable zoom is an advantage. So many times birds fly right on top of my head or come too close. If I was sitting there with fixed 500mm, I would have to just sit there and wait and hope the bird goes where I can get focus. For this lens, everything is in range.
I combine it with 7D crop-sensor body and I get 400x1.6 = 640mm. I loose not one thing in picture quality with crop sensor. If anything because subjects move closer my pictures average 5-8 MB after cropping. Without the crop sensor I was averaging 1-2MB. So in fact I have picked up 240mm of reach and paid NOTHING for it in terms of picture quality or sacrificing auto focus etc.
The BOKEH is beautiful. It is only 5.6f with 400mm however even that produces beautiful creamy backgrounds. For any photography the background is important but it is even more important for wildlife. If you get too many details in background it gives you a headache to look at that picture. Even at f5.6 this produces good bokeh.
The size is manageable too. I can not wait to save 8K for my 500mm f4 lens. However, I know its limitations. Almost twice as heavy and twice as big. Guys walking around with it are limited to how much hand held shooting they can do. Yeah reach is there, but if you are in spots where it is not needed as much it becomes a huge hassle.
I have even taken landscape shots with it, and gotten nothing but good results. Essentially sometimes the interesting light is far from you and this gives you the reach you need for landscapes as well.
ONLY time I felt I was let down is that I love to create Sun Stars. I tried to stop down for a landscape scene to try and achieve sun-star but it couldn't don it. Just gave a blob.
I can live without it. This lens has produced images for me that life my spirit every time and I can't express how awesome it really is and how any wildlife photographer must have it, even if you can afford the bigger lenses.
I quickly got a replacement lens from Amazon and was very glad I returned the old lens. The replacement lens was about 4 months newer and had the new Canon lens cap with the pinch release on the front of the cap (not that I really cared about the lens cap). The focus was much improved at >25 yards. I don't think I lost much, if anything, at the shorter distances, but it is hard to say because I was so blown away with the first lens at this distance. I really really love this copy of this lens, but I am disappointed that I have to be quality control for Canon (this is why 4 stars, if I had gotten this lens first it would be 5+ stars). I am now looking to buy several more "L" class lenses after seeing for myself what a difference it can make in the quality of your photos. I am a pixel peeper and this makes a difference for me. I have taken a couple thousand shots with this newer lens (wildlife, flowers, outdoor portraits, etc.) and can say with confidence it is a great lens and much better than the first copy.
