Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile glass Capable lens in so many ways. Transition to mirrorless bodies is seamless. From Airshows, birding, and Solar Eclipse this is an amazing tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Fourth Lens in the Trinity This lens was purchased as the alternative to an EF 600mm f/4L IS USM used for birds and wildlife. Obviously, the 600mm isn’t suited to walking around, or keeping on hand for opportunistic shots. The build quality is excellent. It is a rugged lens and while it is not light, it is the extensive glass and the metal body adding that weight so there’s real benefit to that cost. While the 400mm maximum and f/5.6 limit at that length can’t match it, the performance of the 100-400mm is more than adequate for the settings and conditions it does fit. I was afraid I would be compromising on IQ but that fear quickly vanished as I found that at any focal length this lens can produce razor sharp, high contrast shots I am happy to call my work. The usability is top notch as well. The AF is fast, not quite as fast as the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM but close. I rarely have a problem getting good focus, and in time to get the shot. The image stabilization is excellent as well, and with three modes, including one that stabilizes only at the moment of shooting, it doesn’t interfere with getting the shot with dynamic, moving subjects like birds in flight. With the barrel retracted and the hood inverted it presents a surprisingly compact package making it easy to carry and even with the hood in shooting position if it is zoomed to 100mm it can easily be carried on a strap while walking or hiking. The other unexpected bonus with this lens is the exception close focus distance of about 1m (3ft). Because of this, I find myself using this lens for a lot more “normal” photography, including portraiture, candids, and even “telemacro” of flowers, insects, and the like. Overall, this lens should be in the kit of any Canon shooter needing a telephoto lens in this range. The combination of performance, ruggedness, and versatility make it a lens you will find yourself using constantly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice for the price Excellent clarity and separation of subject and background (bokeh). Photo is handheld on 5dIV body

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Versatility. Perfect for Outdoors I bought this intentionally for an airshow and it's quickly become one of my primary lenses. Never leave home without it.
Date published: 2023-02-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lens For All Reasons Came up for a fair price used, so I took a flyer. Own an incredibly sharp 400mm f4 DO, so telephoto was pretty much covered. Also have the 180mm Macro, which is a standout lens. This lens covers both ends and what's in between, and does it with high contrast, high resolution, and tolerable weight. Certainly much less than carrying both the others into the field. It's my "walk around" lens, because of all this. Other photos seem to emphasize the telephoto capability. I'm here to say that it's also a great close-up choice. Not selling the DO or the macro, but I put them on the camera for their purpose, not grab shots.
