Pros: BOKEH, sharpness, speed, construction

Cons: weight, dimensions, handling

Opinion: The 400 2.8 is a spectacular lens that every sports photographer must have in his kit... if well used it offers really sharp images and with a fabulous detachment of the planes. This optics is lucky enough to find it used at a much more affordable price than the second and third series, obviously the weight is not from its ... freehand for more than 20 minutes it is impossible to manage it and having it together for a whole day / several days in a row is tiring (and I am quite performing physical being an athlete), but with a modopod you can improve the situation, obviously it is less manageable but on the other hand it allows you to save on medical care caused by the weight ;) jokes aside, it is a really beautiful optics, I use it for outdoor sports and allows me to get excellent results (even customers are happy) Having the budegt I would immediately go to series iii which has a really ridiculous weight (I have seen colleagues use it freehand all day and have hung it on our shoulder as if it were nothing ...)

Pros: Brightness, bokeh, exceptional sharpness already at full opening, af

Cons: Weight and difficulty in finding any spare parts

Opinion: If you are an exception for weight, which after a day of freehand makes itself felt (which is why I often prefer to use it on monopiede) is a flawless optics. Despite the weight I also used it duplicated for shots on the fly with excellent results. Unreastable clarity already open even in very bad light conditions, which allows you to enhance any detail. Wonderful bokeh that blends any background giving a crazy prominence to the subject. And then the brightness: at dawn or sunset it is spectacular, sometimes a real march more than other fixed (and I speak also having the 500 4). If it is short in bird life (often use with 1.4 it becomes necessary unless you shoot to powered subjects, without being affected by af or image quality) for ungulates it is perfect. After two years of intensive use vote 9.5.

Pros: Sharpness, blurring, detachment of planes, autofocus

Cons: The weight, but was born to be used with monopod in sport or on tripod or beanbag in naturalistic photography

Opinion: The sharpness of this dream lens is amazing at full-time, which is even more incredible considering it's a 1999 project. I own the 300 2.8 IS of the same series and I had the 500 f/4 IS, but this lens I would say that in sharpness it is even higher. With multipliers it performs very well but not like the 600 f/4 series II. At 1.4 the autofocus remains fast while slowing down with the 2X but the sharpness remains very good and improves by closing by a stop. The blurry that it produces at 2.8 leaves you speechless, the backgrounds look like silk, the detachment of the subjects is incredible. It is a lens that has a unique charm and should be used smooth to take advantage of all its qualities.

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
