Great Lens

I am a beginner photographer. Just started classes for my personal knowledge, not to be a professional. I wanted a lens to bring things closer. This does very well, but I was expecting more, because I am a beginner... This lens is awesome. It's heavy, push pull zoom is easy to get the hang of. Its sharp and the AF is fast. Image stabilization works well, but you still need a monopod or tripod due to the weight. I would recommend this lens to anyone who wants a high quality lens that will brin...

Fabulous lens

By

Great for close ups as well as zooming in on wildlife. Gorgeous optics and easy to use. Push pull zoom is a little cumbersome.

EF 100-400mm is Versatile

By

from Davis, CA

I bought the lens for wild bird photography. I considered the EF 400 5.6, but I thought I better go with IS. I am a pure amateur hobbyist. I like the portability of the lens. The great close focus (5.9') has been useful in getting images of flowers and insects. Most of my use is at the 400mm, but I like the ability to shorten-up if the subject comes closer. I use it mostly from a monopod, and I am still working to get consistently sharp images of moving birds. I have seen the work of professionals who use the same lens, so I know what is possible with my Canon equipment.The EF 100-400mm is heavy! For me, the push-pull zoom feature is an interesting challenge - keep it too loose, and it creeps longer; too tight, and you miss a shot trying to shorten it. I'll keep working with it to see if I can give it 5 Stars.

Good Lens

By

from Elk Grove, IL  -  Photo Enthusiast

the lens is a little heavier than I expected, but the auto focus is good. I use it with a T1i. While I would prefer a twist zoom, the slide zoom works OK. I have not tried it yet with a tele converter.

Awesome lens

By

from Liberty Lake, WA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Used this lens at a Canon live learning seminar and it was great, so ordered one from Adorama and they delivered promptly and in great condition. The sharpness of this lens while hand holding it is fantastic. I had a 170-500mm of another brand, but never could get perfectly sharp photos. Very pleased with this lens.

Excellent lens

By

from Iowa  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Very nice lens, great images. It's disappointing that it's not weather sealed. It's also disappointing that it won't autofocus on any but 1D-level bodies when using the 1.4x (or 2x) teleconverter. Zoom creep is customer controlled; you can tighten it up if you want, but that makes zooming tighter and harder too. The image stabilization works well but leads to a false sense of security. I got many blurry images when not paying attention to shutter speed. IS is great but it won't eliminate all blur, esp. with very short shutter speeds. But the lens itself is darn nice. Images are sharp with very nice color. I bought mine used and am glad I did. For <$1200 I got a peach of a lens. A real keeper.

My GoTo lens for Sports

By

from Livermore, CA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I shoot youth Football and Baseball and this lens lives on my camera about 6 months of the year. It's big and heavy but the breadth of range allows for flexibility that I'd otherwise need two bodies for. I actually like the push-pull zoom because it seems faster but it is a disadvantage when shooting through the fence on baseball.

Big "gun" lens

By

from West Haven,UT  -  Photography Student

First the lens is big and heavy, but it was expected. My first dislike is the fact that this is a push/pull type lens, does not make for quick focusing. Used it first time in Yosemite National Park, getting used to it. Great optics so far. The next big test is my trip to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. Ultimate test is trip to Kenya and Tanzania for a safari, the primary purpose of why I purchased the lens.

A great value

By

from Arcata, Ca

This is my second purchase of this lens (the first got stolen) so that right there should tell you how much I like this lens. My favorite subject for this lens is Airshows but is a great Nature lens except in the darkest of conditions.

Great Lens, Know the Limits

By

from New Jersey

I purchased this lens as I needed to give myself a bit more reach than my 70-200 could offer, even with the 1.4 extender. The versatility with the lens is great. The 100-400 range is perfect for photographing airplanes, wildlife, sports, etc. The images are sharp up until about 300mm and then there is a slight drop off in sharpness as you go beyond 300. The focusing at times can be a bit slow, which can be tough if you are trying to lock in on a moving subject. Finally the lens does seem to vignette a lot when mounted to a full frame, which is to be somewhat expected but maybe not so much to the degree I get at times. The lens is push/pull which is a bit uncommon now. However, the adjustment period really isn't bad and after a day of playing around it feels normal. The tension ring is great for allowing you to determine how much or how little force will be required to zoom in or out. I have had this lens for nearly 5 months now and it does seem to be what I utilize the most. I still use my 70-200 f4L IS at times when I know I will not need that extra reach. My 70-200 copy is amazingly sharp and I find it to be a bit faster at focusing. Overall, I do recommend this lens to almost everyone. It is a great versatile lens but does have a few limitations. It will be interesting to see if Canon does come up with something to replace it in the coming years as the current version is coming up on 16 years already. My version was a 2013 build, based on both the serial number and having come with the new center pinch lens cap. The design might be old, but Canon is still actively making them!
