Product Reviews
Canon EF telephoto zoom lens - 100 mm - 400 mm is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding! I have now used this lens on a 5DSR body for two years. I have shot several full moon pictures at 400mm (on a tripod) and can clearly see all the contours of the moon. Most importantly, I have been able to use this at ISO 6400; 1/160-1/250 inside convention centers and high school gyms to shoot gymnastics competitions and winter guard competitions over the full focal length range. Images are crisp and clear coupled to the 5DSR. The image stabilization is amazing. Grain doesn't get unacceptably bad unless image is significantly cropped. Outdoors, this lens is simply incredible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Match for My 7D mark ii I bought this as a replacement for my EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 L IS USM. I primarily shoot wildlife, birds in particular. I tried the 400mm f/4 L prime, but missed having a zoom and sent the 400 Prime back. My bad, as I should have put more thought into it beforehand.This lens is heavy and when combined with the EOS 7D mark ii's battery grip, the rig is really heavy. I shoot hand held and the lens is easy for me to carry and hold in position while waiting for the "perfect pose". IS is outstanding but AF seems to hunt when there is clutter in the background, like leaves and branches. A lot of that hunting goes away when you changing the AF setting to 3 meters to infinity rather than 0-infinity. But most of the time it amazes me at how it can pick that little birdie out of all that mess. I love the 3 foot focusing distance at 400mm. It almost doubles as a Macro lens. I've captured some beautiful flower and small critter shots with it. This ability pretty much makes it my carry around lens. It does it all.Quality images are the main reason I've kept this lens and use it daily. Color, contrast and saturation are superb, even with the basic factory defaults on the 7D mark ii. I do fiddle with these settings in DPP 4, but who doesn't? But the fact is, you don't need to. Using the 7D2, low light doesn't bother this f/5.6 lens at 400mm, but I usually push ISO to 1000 or higher depending on the shutter speed I want to useThis is a solid lens and built for the field. I have been caught in rain and still kept shooting, of course, I dried it off after getting in my vehicle, but it seems none the worse for it. I've dropped it (maybe 2 feet) on several occasions with no harm. After about 6 months, the zoom barrel did start to creep, but the tension ring takes care of that. So far, no strange noises or rattles and believe me, I am not one to take great care of my toys, although I do keep it clean and cased when not in use.If you can afford this mid priced lens, go for it. You will be pleased and encouraged to take more shots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Canon Delivers Another Winner There have been some pretty comprehensive reviews - so I'll try not to be repetitive. I have had the previous Canon EF 100-400 for several years and it was always reliably excellent. Good response, very good imaging, nice range. The push pull zoom was always a bit awkward for me and the new upgrades along with the twist controlled zoom were enough to help me decide to switch. It is difficult to imagine the upgrades would be this good! This is a world class lens at a moderate price compared to other lenses that perform this well. Ergonomics are terrific. While fairly hefty, it isn't awkward - well balanced with intuitively placed controls. Works well with the 1.4 Extender version II. Loses an f-stop on the EOS 5D Mark IV but I don't see any significant image degradation. Autofocus still snappy even with adapter. The close focusing is nice and while it provides better range it cannot replace a true macro. It can substitute at times for a 70-200 if light is sufficient and the loss below 100 isn't critical, but I also have the new 70-200 F2.8 and it is just as much a step up as this lens - quite amazing.There is one negative for me on the new 100-400 - the tripod mount. While the new design allows the convenience of removal without removing the lens from the camera - it is not as well balanced as the old style and it is too narrow. I typically use the "foot" on the lens to set the rig on when I need free hands - this one is not stable! Not a deal-breaker but if I can find a better substitute - I'll swap it out.Thanks for another winner Canon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent wildlife lens I was very happy with my 70-300 mm L lens and did not want the 100-400 because of its weight. When my husband got the new 100-400 lens, I was blown away by its sharpness and fast focusing. A couple months later I got the same lens for our trip to Alaska. I used the lens on a tripod and hand-held. The quality of the images is superb. Only downside is the new lens cap which comes off too easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Zoom Lens - EF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6L IS II USM I am not a pro but advanced level photographer and have been shooting with multiple Digital SLRs and Lenses for many years. This lens is perfect for up close tight shots and for long distance shooting. Perfect for wildlife, racing, still or action. Works well with and without IS and provides the picture quality I desire. A little pricey for many, it's a must if you quality and need to reach out. Canon has done this lens right. Thanks guys

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good lens Great for shooting multiple shots at a selected focal length. A bit stiff in changing focal distance on the fly such as following a fastbreak or 80 yd touchdown run. Orherwise a great sports lens for daylight games or under professional stadium lighting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tremendous lens, sharp, fast-focus, great IS! This is a tremendous lens, and seems to be everything it’s claiming to be. I’ve had it for a month now and have taken a couple of hundred shots with a 5D MkIII under various conditions, - but all hand-held - to test the IS functionality and minimum ISO and SS thresholds. I was able to get crisp, sharp shots with no visible distortion or flaring, with beautiful color rendition, of both static and moving subjects at 400mm at just 1/400” and ISO 400 hand held. .IQ is as good (or better) as my 70-200mmL 2.8 and 24-70mmL 2.8, which I have used for years and consider outstanding. Beautiful colors, sharp, no apparent distortion. Bokeh was very good..What I like about this new lens is the following:1) The autofocus is faster2) There’s an additional IS setting3) The IS seems to be better - shooting handheld in sunlight at 400mm at just 1/400” ISO 400 yielded a range of f-stop options outdoors from 5.6-16 and crisp, sharp images. This includes relatively static subjects as well as moving subjects (like birds and planes.) This was most impressive..On non-image related features:4) The lens hood is well-thought out and VERY easy to get on and off, as is the new lens cap. And the “sliding door” on the hood to allow rotation of the polarizer is a great touch!5) The “L” bracket of the tripod mount is removable and cleverly designed; the thumb turn screw is well textured for a good grip but you have to lift it slightly while turning to disengage the screw’s locking mechanism. This is quite easy but it means that when it is resting, there is no chance of vibrations getting the screw loose. Very clever!6) There’s even a “tension adjustment” ring below the zoom ring which adjusts how much friction the zoom ring will have, i.e., how “loose” or “tight” it is to turn! Also very clever!7) It’s a tad lighter than the 70-200mm and a bit shorter..This lens has a pretty close focus (3.2ft/.98m) and could be used as a portrait lens at 100mm (I have only used it as such a few times but with excellent results) but it’s real beauty is outdoors: to cover almost any situation short of a wide-angle landscape. With two lenses, the 24-70mm and this one, you could cover almost anything..If you’re a safari guide and can afford the very expensive 200-400mm f4 1.4x extender OK, but that’s a lot more for 1 f stop and an extra 160mm of questionable sharpness with a tele-extender, sacrificing a very useful lower end 100mm field of view. .The real “competition” or alternative is probably the EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM, also very well regarded and in roughly the same price range. But you have to ask yourself which is more important to your needs: the wide-angle function at f3.5, where you’d be going from wide-angle to decent telephoto, or, a portrait to super-telephoto class (100-400mm) sacrificing the “wide angle” functionality?.Few people have the money to just buy both options, so you have to decide what’s the best combination for you for what you shoot. This is the best combination for my needs and it is a fabulous lens in every way. Can’t think of any reasonable negative (yes, it’s expensive, but you are getting what you are paying for, yes, it’s heavy, but good glass and metal are heavy…) .Another consideration, this is a brand-new lens, and the reviews are stellar, so you have no fear of plunking your money down only to have a “Mark III” version come out in a couple of years..If the zoom range meets your needs, this is one of the finest lenses you can buy.
