Pros and cons

According to our camera lens expert
  • Both ASP-C and full-frame cameras are compatible with the Canon EF 100-400mm.
  • The EF 100-400mm has a weatherproof casing.
  • Filters are within reach for adjustments even with the lens hood in place.
  • The light sensitivity of f/5.6 at 400mm is limited.
  • The lens is relatively large and weighs 1590g, so it's recommended to use a tripod.

Description

Beginning sport and nature photographers have been very happy with the versatile Canon 100-400mm lens for years. With the second edition of the lens, Canon shows it has a place in every camera bag. The push/pull system was abandoned in favor of the more conventional rotating zoom ring. The possibility to adjust the resistance of the zoom ring has been kept in place. The accuracy of the lens can be adapted to the personal wishes of each sports and nature photographer. Another important factor is the image stabilization. Like a true sports lens should, the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM offers 4-stop stabilization, which makes handheld shooting possible in a multitude of situations.

Really surpasses everything! Simply impressive!

  • Image quality
  • Short minimum focus distance

Truly a fantastic lens. For a while I doubted whether I should go for a 150-600mm from sigma/tamron, finally went for this one, but I don't regret the decision for a single moment. Image quality, IS system and autofocus system are great. With a super fast autofocus system and its good IS you will never miss that one fantastic moment! Impressively, this lens also has a shortest focusing distance of 98cm. Great to travel and work with this lens despite its weight of around 1.5kg. It is highly recommended!

Incredibly sharp telephoto zoom

  • Sharp!
  • Good design (focus ring in front, twist system instead of push-pull)
  • Canon price

The sharpness of the photos with this lens is unsurpassed. I use the lens on a 1.6 crop sensor camera, but there are absolutely no visible imperfections in this lens. What is also important to report; the sharpness lasts over the entire zoom range, so not just at the extremes. In practice, the IS really gives a good 3 to 4 stops extra. I really can't think of any negatives for this lens, apart from the too high Canon price (which we are used to).

Finally the super sharp images I've been dreaming of for a l

  • Razor-sharp images
  • Weight is limited, so it's great to shoot handheld
  • Zoom function goes up to max. 400

Super happy with this lens. Much sharper than the lens I had before. Also lighter, so easier to shoot handheld. I mainly use it for wildlife photography. For that he is completely worth the money. The main reason why I hesitated for a long time is that the zoom function only goes up to 400. However, because the quality of the images is so much higher, extra cropping afterwards is no problem.

Impressive zoom from Canon even on a full frame!

  • picture quality
  • Auto-Focus

Perfect & efficient IS function (4 stops of gain). Nice pictures even at 400mm. Easy to operate. Efficient Auto-Focus. Compact considering the range. Largest aperture not perfect 4.5-5.6, but for this kind of telephoto zoom...
