Pros: fantastic lens with sharpness and Out of fabulous plans. high quality pictures even with the multipliers.

Cons: Weight without stand and on the go

Opinion: After using with satisfaction the various tele f4 Canon 300, 400 and 300 f5.6 f2.8 is I bought a few months the 400 f2.8 is used on the market. The first approaches were quite difficult due to the weight and size that slow down a bit 'fully operational and movements. Then the yield and operating speed to the great reward small initial sacrifices fact just everything is ready the lens pulls all his grit. If you use the stand the weight is not a big deal either with rocker heads with a ball head, which I personally prefer. The lens, slightly soft up to 3.2, shows all its character by closing a little 'the diaphragm: it takes only one stop even with the multiplier to obtain excellent results. I think the use of the natural differences in yield compared to the new version could be minimal. With this lens are obtained high level results in every situation of light. Saw the second-hand price the 400 is 2.8 is super recommended.

Pros: Practically everything, sharpness, blur autofocus, image quality even duplicate, etc. etc. etc.

Cons: The weight, but it is subjective

Opinion: I bought to replace the 500 F4 L IS USM, at first I was very puzzled, because of the size and weight, but after a first initial period to "adapt" to this "beast" say no ifs and buts that I could not do without it. Sharpness, color, blur, image quality even duplicate (I use it with the Canon duplicator series 3) AF speed, image stabilization, all the top. The only drawback may be the weight in the long run is felt, personally alternate, sometimes on a stand and sometimes I use freehand also a whole day and I enjoy my part to grande.rnDa the vote was a nice 10. rn

Pros: Sharpness, contrast, speed of AF with 2x, blurred

Cons: No one but the weight is irrelevant since it is always used to stand

Opinion: The rival was the F4 500 ... eventually after many tests I chose this ... has something more than the others .. exceptional quality even when used with the 2x, keeps all cross-type points and is fast! Gives great satisfaction ... I use it exclusively for birds mainly of the shed, and from the conviction that my subjects to be as close as possible, for my needs is the TOP! RnUna exceptional lens that I highly recommend to anyone who wants a yield amazing!

Pros: Virtually all of the amazing qualities of perspective

Cons: Excluding the weight that I think is subjective ... no

Opinion: I use it in tandem with the 600 and there is nothing to do ... has a Narcia in most, af guncotton, virtually even with the 1, 4 is embarrassing the speed of operation, incision at the top, the top color, detail a wagon, a very important feature to keep the cross-type points with cameras with minimum aperture f4, the minimum distance of focus and the potential use of an extension tube allows macro backgrounds unthinkable. It has nothing to envy to the new weight and if you do not stab IV January But for everyday use on a tripod is a lack more theoretical than practical. Attached smooth offers untold rewards .... Okay can suffice.

Pros: sharpness, immaggine quality, speed, can be used with all 2 duplicators canon (not together).

Cons: weight (allows few shots freehand and not without afanno), with the arrival of the new you can find it at a good price that otherwise was very high. is a perspective to be taken after several experiences with other lenses smaller.

Opinion: Although out of production, remains a fantastic optics that nothing is missing (perhaps as it makes the new). X to operationalize it takes a few minutes x because of the weight that can slow you down, but once ready is a real satisfaction in any shooting situation, even in the evening or night, where the immaggini surprise to very large openings (4 or 2.8 ). I tried with the 7d and the dupl.2x and in low light conditions without regretting the results. Only real flaw is the weight that may seem minor, but put together with the rest of the equipment (II machine, other optical and flash more trip and monopod) has an impact considerably, so that canon has made a new one of "only" 3.8 kg compared with 5.4 kg of this model. Even a 450 would look good with optics of this caliber.
