5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishing!, 6 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Canon EF400mm f/2.8L USM Image Stabilisation Telephoto Lens (Accessory)
This review is for the latest USM II version.

It costs the Earth but should last as long.
The depth of field at 400mm f2.8 is shallower than a Jeremy Clarkson quip.
It weighs half as much as the equivalent Nikon.
It is relatively small compared to other big fast lenses.
Image quality is spectacular.
My first few shots informed me that a Robin has brown eyes and long tongue.
I'd never seen this with any other lens.
It is better than the Nikkor 200mm f2, and that lens is fantastic.
I said of the 200mm f2 Nikkor: 'it doesn't get better than this!'...I was wrong!

JP :o)

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, 2 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Canon EF400mm f/2.8L USM Image Stabilisation Telephoto Lens (Accessory)
It's big and heavy. Okay, with all the negatives out of the way, you can look forward to using this lens. The point of a lens is to pick up and focus as much light as possible, and generally lenses of this power have apertures of 5-6. But this is an f2.8. It's work in low light conditions is awesome. Image stablisation works really well and really is needed if hand held. But most photographers will be using this with a monopod or tripod, so thr stabilisation is not needed. I loved using this lens. Images are crisp and clean, and the fixed focal length ensures there is no colour aberation to distort images. Highly recommended. Note this is NOT a zoom lens.
