Product Reviews
Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 71reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Lens I purchased this lens 2014 after my 70-200 L IS disappointed me at an airshow, the second airshow less than two months I shot with the 100-40mm on my Canon 5d Mark II. The photos were absolutely gorgeous,I've shot additional airshows, motorcycle events and just this weekend in Key West, Florida the World Series Speedboat Racing. The photos produced with this camera & lens are absolutely astonishing. I love the feel of the lens when shooting, I have several other lens including the 70-200L IS but this is the one I grab due to the comfort and astonishing photos. Purchasing this lens, you can't go wrong. Shooting with this "baby" you can shoot for hours without wearing yourself out. Weight is not an issue.Put one under a loved ones Christmas tree or an excellent birthday gift. November 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Lens From day 1 I really loved this lens. I love the quality of photos it takes, how far I can zoom and the ease of the zoom. I shoot a lot of airshows and this is a great lens for that as well as wildlife. I highly recommend this lens for any photographer. July 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great versatility We bought this lens originally to photograph our sons football but we have used it for so much more. I take great shots of my sons lacrosse team, the 400 has great reach to get up close action shots of the kids playing, good details. I have also taken this on my trip to Africa,Belieze for fly fishing and various trips, the photos we took were amazing and the ability to get close ups from safe distances was great and I did not sacrifice details. I love the versatility and durability of this lens in different environments July 25, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by EF 100-400mm is Versatile I bought the lens for wild bird photography. I considered the EF 400 5.6, but I thought I better go with IS. I am a pure amateur hobbyist. I like the portability of the lens. The great close focus (5.9') has been useful in getting images of flowers and insects. Most of my use is at the 400mm, but I like the ability to shorten-up if the subject comes closer. I use it mostly from a monopod, and I am still working to get consistently sharp images of moving birds. I have seen the work of professionals who use the same lens, so I know what is possible with my Canon equipment.The EF 100-400mm is heavy! For me, the push-pull zoom feature is an interesting challenge - keep it too loose, and it creeps longer; too tight, and you miss a shot trying to shorten it. I'll keep working with it to see if I can give it 5 Stars. December 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great value This is my second purchase of this lens (the first got stolen) so that right there should tell you how much I like this lens.My favorite subject for this lens is Airshows but is a great Nature lens except in the darkest of conditions. May 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Lens, Know the Limits I purchased this lens as I needed to give myself a bit more reach than my 70-200 could offer, even with the 1.4 extender. The versatility with the lens is great. The 100-400 range is perfect for photographing airplanes, wildlife, sports, etc. The images are sharp up until about 300mm and then there is a slight drop off in sharpness as you go beyond 300. The focusing at times can be a bit slow, which can be tough if you are trying to lock in on a moving subject. Finally the lens does seem to vignette a lot when mounted to a full frame, which is to be somewhat expected but maybe not so much to the degree I get at times. The lens is push/pull which is a bit uncommon now. However, the adjustment period really isn't bad and after a day of playing around it feels normal. The tension ring is great for allowing you to determine how much or how little force will be required to zoom in or out.I have had this lens for nearly 5 months now and it does seem to be what I utilize the most. I still use my 70-200 f4L IS at times when I know I will not need that extra reach. My 70-200 copy is amazingly sharp and I find it to be a bit faster at focusing.Overall, I do recommend this lens to almost everyone. It is a great versatile lens but does have a few limitations. It will be interesting to see if Canon does come up with something to replace it in the coming years as the current version is coming up on 16 years already. My version was a 2013 build, based on both the serial number and having come with the new center pinch lens cap. The design might be old, but Canon is still actively making them! April 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My favorite lens of all I carry two 5dMkIII camera bodies on my Cotton carrier and this lens is always chest mounted. I love this lens. It's a great portrait lens and at 400 mm will take portraits from across the square. I wish it was faster than f/4.0 but if it was bigger it would be a pain to tote around and hold. It's fast focusing, doesn't hunt much, and gives very sharp images at wide open. Just remember to use 1/400 sec or faster (I use 1/500 or 1/640) to avoid blur. I almost never use tripod. I even got great shots of Musk ox from a rubber zodiak in Greenland. Has two focal distance settings--remember to use the right one to avoid hunting. January 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Back to the 100-400L Purchased with a 1.4 teleconverter and have just started looking at the lens sharpness.I have started using this lens with a full frame 6d and the images are very sharp and the focus is very accurate. The 1.4xIII converter does not appear to detract measurably from the sharpness of the lens at 400mm, very impressive so far.The lens feel and tightness of the zoom mechanism is much improved.
