  • Canon EF 400mm f/4 DO IS USM

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    light weight, compact, quick focus, hand held
    Should come with a simple lens cover

    Works great with 2x or 1.4.x. Don't mind carrying this one compared to the other super-telephotos and for me this determines if it gets used or not. I leave it on my 1DmarkII and keep my 1DsII free for my other lenses. When I first viewed my pics from this lens I immediately knew it was a keeper. If its too heavey no matter how good a lens, you always ask yourself if you are going to lug it with you. Its all about using it if you have it with you, and you just can't say anything bad about the images.
