  • Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    well constructed,IS works fine, not too heavy
    a bit soft images with jpegs but no problem with raws,rarely auto focus fails in low light conditions(especially inearly morning times)

    In low light conditions i use this lens mounted on monopod manfrotto 682B with 322RC2 joystick without any problem.Also i use this lens with 1.4 Canon extender on monopod with manuel focus,in this case images are a bit soft but if you are a raw shooter like me, it is not a poblem...
    Price is too much for usa but as a Turkish,unfortunately this is so naturel in Turkey.Because of the extremelly high taxes.This is just the brutel way of collecting money from people by Turkish goverment..
