Product Reviews
Canon EF telephoto zoom lens - 100 mm - 400 mm is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from My #1 go to lens I love this lens the only reason I give it a four is because after just over one year of use, I have noticed it seems to have dust inside the lens. Since the warranty is up it sounds like it is gonna cost me to get it fixed. I'm not very happy about the short life span. I have grabbed some amazing shots with this lens though when it was in better condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible. Powerful. Fun. Every single time I take this lens out to shoot I end up with a big grin on my face. Previously I have favored primes over zooms and especially over variable aperture zooms believing that I could not get the image quality I wanted with a zoom. In the past this may have been true. Not any more. The sophisticated features and tech packed into this lens are incredible. Image quality is sharp at every focal length wide open. Stabilization works. It really works. Previously I would never have considered hand holding a 300 or 400mm lens. I shoot this lens at 400mm handheld all day long.Potentially, the 100-400mm replaces at least 4 or 5 other lenses for me:70-200mm f/2.8 for sports. Typically I'd only use the 100-200 range on the 70-200 lens. And in full sun you have to stop down to f/4 anyway. In daylight the 100-400mm covers that same range for me and focuses as fast or faster.Macro lens. While the 100-400 does not achieve 1:1 magnification I rarely go that close anyway. Using 400mm I can stay back from my subject and still get superb isolation and background blurring.300mm f/4 + 400mm f/5.6. The 100-400 has better IS than my old 300mm IS lens. I loose a half stop shooting at 300mm but the image quality and ease of use make this new lens a hands down winner. Compared to the older 400 f/5.6 prime I see no difference in image quality. Plus the 100-400 is fully weather sealed unlike either of the primes.70-300mm L. At 300mm the 100-400 is faster: f4/5 vs f/5.6. Image quality is the same at all duplicate focal lengths. But, the 100-400 can use teleconverters where the 70-300 cannot. The 70-300 is alot smaller and lighter so I still grab it when I want a little less to carry. But overall the 100-400 may replace the 70-300 in my bag eventually too.And speaking of teleconverters, with the 1.4x III the 100-400 still focuses quickly on all my bodies and image quality remains solid even wide open getting 560mm @ f/8.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best lens I ever purchased Best lens on the market 100-400MM L iiI recently upgraded to the new Canon 100-400MM L ii after owning version 1 for 5 years. The technology Canon put into the new ii lens is amazing. Sharpness, quality, color, faster AF, quiet motor, new twist design, less chromatic Ab, more glass. Matched up with a Canon 5D Mark iii, my photos took the next step in perfection. Canon has been building cameras and lens for a long time, they know what their doing.

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
