This high-performance lens was designed with portability and handling ease in mind. One Super UD-glass element, whose characteristics are similar to fluorite, and one UD-glass element result in sharp pictures from corner-to-corner. The lens also has a built-in hood and a detachable tripod mount.
From the Manufacturer
Light. Portable. Excellent handling. Sharp. And amazingly fast autofocus. The 400mm f/5.6L is all of these things, and a premier choice for wildlife and nature photographers--one of the finest telephoto lenses in the world for fast-moving subjects such as birds in flight or motor sports. It uses UD-glass elements to provide outstanding optical quality, even wide-open, and image quality is preserved when used with either the EF 1.4x II or EF 2x II tele extenders. It accepts 77mm filters, and has a built-in removable tripod collar.
See a Different Dimension
A super telephoto lens can make an ordinary scene into an extraordinary one. Its ability to see surpasses that of the human eye. It can compress images and make them look as if they come from another dimension. It opens up new realms of photographic expression. All EF super telephoto lenses are L-series lenses to provide the highest quality. The USM provides quiet and high-speed autofocusing. These lenses promise outstanding delineation and put your imagination to the test.

The lens is very quick to focus on my 7D. It's build quality is impeccable.
I've already taken at least 500-photos with it (sports included) and believe it is sharper than the 100-400mm, but the differences are more subtle than for which I had hoped. When shooting wildlife, especially small birds, the slightest vibration can mean the difference between a perfect and unusable photo. A tripod is absolutely necessary as is shooting with at least a shutter speed of 1/400.
I found this lens to be hand-holdable, with no need for Image $tabilization. Bucks saved means more moolah available for more goodies from Amazon.
Mostly though, the lens is SUPER SHARP!
Yesterday I paired it with a Kenko 1.4x teleconverter - WOW!!!!! The image was not degraded at all from the addition of the teleconverter.
Optically, this lens is everything you'd want from an Optical Tube Assembly. It is eminently usable wide open. There is no field curvature. Vignetting is minimal, and CA is well controlled and easily handled in the RAW converter. Also, the image size, unlike in some telescopes, is designed for a 35mmx24mm sensor, obviously. Just as importantly, this is really easy to use for astrophotography. It is lighter than the zoom, even without the converter. Autofocus is fast and sure. I simply find a relatively bright star (does not even have to be extremely bright), and even phase detect autofocus will work on it. I generally use the dual pixel AF on my 5D Mark IV and switch to MF after focus is achieved. This gives nice round stars to the edge of the frame. I use a Fornax Lightrack II portable tracker with a Polemaster for polar alignment. This easily gives me very reliable 1 minute subs with this lens, and could very possibly go longer, but don't like to for other reasons.
The only down sides are the lack of IS (not needed for astrophotography), and its length and form factor makes it sensitive to wind during long exposures. It is otherwise as perfect a lens as I would have wished for, and I highly recommend it.
