Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 November 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Killer Lens Just bought this 2 days ago. After much time going back and forth in my mind for a while .Finally went ahead and clicked on the puchase button . So happy i did .Cant wait to get out and shoot Motocross . October 28, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. October 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great sharpness and color rendition After using the Canon 300mm L f4 for years, there was a learning curve to a zoom lens for my birding photography- not a fault of the lens, just me. And still working on getting the best from the combination of the 7d MkII with this lens and getting the best settings to make them work together best.Generally I'm in pretty good light and have learned to be less afraid of bumping up the ISO to get the best from this this lens, which sounds like the opposite approach but has really worked well. I've had the lens for about six months now and just had two great shoots with it- one in Eastern Oregon tracking the birds over there and just last week (June 3rd, 2016) over at Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area tracking a pair of Peregrine Falcons who were gather 'meals' for their three chicks. It was a challenge to keep up with them but I got some outstanding photos of the pair, especially when they transferred the 'meal' from the male to the female as she prepared the meal for the chicks. The balance of holding this lens handheld during that sequence on that 7d MkII was really important in getting those shots. So many that I've shown those to asks if I took them- they've seen other photos that I've taken but practice- and good fortune- made that series just stellar! The detail in those made easy identification of the 'meal bird' and gave a feeling of really being right there.Two years ago I rented a 150-600mm and found it cumbersome to work with and even when steady and everything fine tuned, the 400mm shots from the Canon looked better and sharper, cropped mind you, than the 600mm shots from the other lens. What I learned from that is that I wouldn't be missing that extra 200mm. I tried the lens with an off-brand 1.4 and even though that's not the best matchup, those looked as good or better than the 150-600mm- so yes, the Canon 1.4 MkIII is on the shopping list since if that one can work that well I'm excited to try it with the newer and better matched Canon!The main point for me was that the lens felt more like the 70-200mm f2.8 MkII, which I'm used to- well balanced, great sharpness and, as I noticed with the that lens, the color of the images is just so right on and true, I noticed softness and weak color in that 150-600mm. Yes, I could have saved money but the image quality is where it's got to be at and it just wasn't there- so glad I rented it instead of buying it and waited for the replacement of the original 100-400mm.The lens 'anti-creep' feature is great too, the zoom torque adjustment ring. I haven't used a polarizer in years but that Canon thought of that feature in the lens hood is just another example of how well thought out the lens is. June 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Photographed a carpenter bee in flight I have the older version of this lens and use it with my 70D with great results. When I moved up to the 5Ds I got the new lens at the same time. Could not be more pleased. Was out on my deck when I saw some carpenter bees and thought this could make a great picture. Shot one with the bee in mid flight and could even see the wings. April 27, 2016
