Pros: Transportability considered the focal length of 800mm, sharpness, stabilization

Cons: Price

Opinion: I have had the opportunity to try this lens for a long time before making a concrete idea of ??its value and potential.rnConsidered the 800mm focal length, its weight makes it an object still very transportable, I used it on monopod, not even of excellent quality and he gave me exceptional images. In my opinion it is not correct, as some assert, that it is mandatory to use the tripod at any cost ... certainly not an optical for photos on the fly to the swallows throughout the day ... you would die of fatigue! RnAt the beginning I was very suspicious of this focal point, but after having tested it I must say that my assumptions were without foundation and completely preconceived. I verified a sharpness at the highest levels, as you can expect from a professional lens of CANON L series, at the height of the younger brothers 600 and 500 mm.rnThe stabilization works as if it were a much lighter and shorter focal lens, very fast and precisissima.rnOvvio that if you do bird life, you're unlikely to be able to get offunder times longer than 1/2500 sec, the objective is a blade ... gives images engraved and super-detailed, but of course it can not digest the blur. Speech valid for both FF and APS-C.rnOne of the advantages that I have most appreciated is that, with a camouflage poncho I wear, you are able to photograph where you want without the dependence on the hut and keeping towards the animal a greater distance respect of his privacy, almost never invading and disturbing the so-called safe distance that allows the animal not to be bothered. rnThe price is a drain, buy it new really challenging, a madness that you can think of doing if you miss, as I miss, a few wheels.

Pros: Reduced weight: Almost 1 kg less than the 600 is the compactness: smaller than the 600 is I excellent balance, sharpness at the top, a notch above the 600 is the absence of chromatic aberrations, Af speed even with 1.4 x III excellent sharpness with 1.4 x Stabilizer 4 Stop as The Supertele II series

Cons: No defect detected after 1 year of use. The minimum distance of MAF to 6MT is not a big limit unless you photograph subjects smaller than 5 cm, in which case we can use a ring EX macro of the cost of €25

Opinion: Optics of great quality: For me that photographer often passerines and other small birds is a boon because it allows me to put the perches at 8-9 MT, from my sides the birds have to always count with the hunters and so they are very suspicious. Multiplied 1.4 on MK4 is a deadly weapon of almost 1455mm of focal length and excellent quality. On the tripod is very well balanced not too long. For me that I come from the 600mm is I a nice leap of quality in all directions, and I would not go back further also be able to stand for example at 10 meters instead of 6.5 (Col 500mm) makes a difference if you photograph birds close to the nest : Here is an example of torticollis taken at 13 MT (already at this distance very fearful) while returning to the nest: https://www.juzaphoto.com/galleria.php?t=1071463 Ps. Now that that I use it on the 5ds has gained greater sharpness and accuracy of MAF so that it is not mistaken Practically never.
