  • Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Tack Sharp, even with the 1.4x and 2X III TC's
    Price, Even Less Weight would be nice

    The long wait was definitely worth it. I just got the lens and it matches my expectations based on Canon's MTF curves. Each of my Canon bodies (5DMkII & 7D) require microfocus adjustment to extract full sharpness down to f/2.8. I am stunned by how sharp this lens is with either of Canon's latest teleconverters (III). While the price should demand it, I'm feeling the fact that I now have a sharp 800mm lens is a bonus. Great job, Canon. Price, OUCH! Love the smaller sized case with its slots for the two teleconverters.
