Review of Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM*
Truly Amazing – I love to shoot wildlife, loads of birds, action photos, etc. This lens on a 7DMkII and the only excuse for a bad photo is the user.I do 99.9% handheld and often at 400mm – the photos are very sharp and focus is awesome. The only con I put is it is heavy, as I said I tend to do handheld the weight can be tough after a while.
GREAT LENS; VERY WOW! – I was yearning to buy a telephoto and finally gave in and purchased the 100-400L ii. I work at a music venue as a house photographer and was pleasantly surprised how well this lens held up in low light conditions. It’s well worth the price!
Great Lens!!!- I plan on using the lens for wildlife but lately it has been too cold to spend much time outdoors. I thought that it would be too slow for hand held indoors but I was wrong. Bright pictures and tack sharp, even during evening ours. Great lens.
