Pros: Sharpness, robustness, af, weight balance.

Cons: Cost.

Opinion: I have been using this wonderful lens for 2 years and still manages to amaze me positively. Combined with a ff body and an apsc with the two tc 1.4x and 2x practically from a 400 2.8 you get to a 1280 5.6 with a wonderful quality even at full opening, it is useful to close only to recover depth of field. The minimum mf is very useful for butterflies and large insects or flowers and the mf limiter for birds in flight because it makes the Af even faster. Even with the 2xiii the sharpness does not decrease in the slightest, only the mf is slightly slower especially with machine bodies a little dated type 7d first version. With the tc 1.4x is all perfect, as not having it mounted. The freehand use tired but is solved with a good monopod or an easel if affixed. The weight, however, is very well balanced with respect to the bracket. The stabilizer is very efficient and stops the image even in the crosshairs impeccably. I replaced the original bracket with a Chinese bracket that directly has the best of all the swiss ark attack for me. What else to say... If you can afford it for me it is the best canvas for quality and versatility.

Pros: Sharpness also multiplied

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: I own this lens for about a year and I joined the beautiful 600 f4 ii and I only use it for the avifauna.rnÈ simply fantastic, crystal clear smooth and multiplied, with 2x it takes Belinus compared to 600 and multiplier 1.4 and if nn scares the weight, then that is equal to 500 f4 first series, is truly amazing the x avifauna.rnIo I needed more manageable perspective to bring along when sleeping photographer water and with over net and more manageable x subjects on the fly and has long I was undecided between 400 and 300 ..... rnPoi with the 7D mkii returns simply images from fear that nn must add sharpness almost .... I myself with the first images tended increasingly to esagerare.rnA free hand is really valuable because you can use it but obviously after a little tired, cmq nothing particularly exhausting and nn must not be geeks. As af is very fast on smooth and multiplied 1Dx, while the 7D mkii with 2x the fly (tried on mallards) hooks up withdifficulty in this is definitely the 300 best performing, least of x bodies apsc.rnPer flying swallows and small entities do not recommend it .... too heavy, here it is definitely the 300 native gestibile.rnContrasto strabiliante.rnrnrnrnrn

Pros: sharpness (even with 2x); speed; well balanced for use freehand; maximum focus (pdc reduced)

Cons: size openings for front lens sheds; depth of field (obstacle for photos of the "group")

Opinion: I put the depth of field is among the qualities that between the defects, as it is beautiful to isolate subjects, while the opposite can be an obstacle for those who want to have such a focus on two subjects that are interacting but are not exactly the same distance. Close the diaphragm helps in this case only in part, given the reduced pdc 400, which otherwise is a big advantage in the normal picture at full aperture to isolate a single soggetto.rnVenendo from 300 f.28 L IS (first version) the first thing that struck me was the size of the front lens. Footprint inevitable and expected for a 400 f2.8, but it certainly can be an obstacle for some huts, especially thinking of the photos on the fly, which requires a lot of maneuverability in pointing the lens. Of course you could not do better with a 400 f2.8. Moreover than the previous model there is an incredible improvement in weight, which is really well distributed and balanced, and even with a 1D body + tc + 2x 400 f2.8 is not difficult to use free handra, with an eye obviously shutter speed. The use freehand find it practical and accessible to everyone, even if for a full day of shooting at the end weighs. rnNon I detected defects aberration, vignetting, while the sharpness is wonderful even at full aperture. With the 1.4x tx can be considered insignificant degradation of sharpness and optics used at f4. With the 2x tc you notice a degradation of sharpness that makes it usable even at f5.6 although personally I prefer to shoot at F7.1 or F8. Always talking about the 2x tc, there is also a degradation of speed of autofocus. In my current setup or 1D Mark IV + 2x tc III + 400 f2.8 II I notice a visible improvement compared to the 300, but not significantly. Trying the 1DX a friend of mine instead of the 1D Mark IV I liked the best speed auto focus and the improvement over the 300 gets really considerable. Most speed autofocusing with a first impression, involves some shots out of focus, but nothing abnormal: of course I'm talking about moving subjects such as birds in volor). To optimize the speed of autofocus camera with 2x tc, set the focus limiter (7m on) and off the IS. Speaking of autofocus with the 2x tc, I pointed out on several occasions with the 1D Mark IV autofocus fails to engage the subject and I have to help with manual focus. rnNell'uso on the field at times I complained about the length of 400mm in nearby subjects may be excessive (for example, when you are in a car with others and the trigger point is required). But of course those who use fixed lenses knows that it is necessary to make a choice and that the blanket never covers 100% of the needs. In my needs (mainly pictures of animals in traveling distances are not excessive) I find the 300 (with the two tc) the best choice among the big lens in quality / price ratio for the aps-c. While switching to FF, I felt the 300 too short and that I opted for the 400 with 2 tc, the ideal super-telephoto fixed travel for my esigenze.rnNon I have not had a chance to try it in panning, which I do not comment quindi.rn

Pros: great lens, sharp and fast ... excellent stabilizer in mode 2 really effective for panning at 1/100 to hand liberadirei also pretty light considering its kind and size prestazionila new pack now includes two compartments for the multipliers 1.4x and 2x ......... .. very comfortable trips

Cons: there are no cons in this context ... obviously unnecessary to reiterate that does a bang

Opinion: perspective without really confrontornnon we still find no fault or limiternè a lens which of course is for those who would not otherwise exploits it really pays for itself for its cost really altornnessuna aberration, vignetting really minimal to nonexistent limit (on FF) , deformation assenternnitidezza fabulous even at full aperture ... obviously remains a perspective that requires determination in the grip otherwise it undergoes the effect of the sail on its size when montanto monopiedernSi makes necessary a head from easel / monopod that supports a nice weight and good torsionirnrnOttimo also the fact that in the housing is included a second leg (short) for special needs
