Pretty curious as to how good of a lens it is and there is no archive in the lens archive section. I figured i'll just do it here.

LOL I noticed that months ago. I thought this lens must not be any good so no one buys it, but then when I questioned that theory I got a mouth full from 400mm f5.6 users that it is a great bird lens. So I am dying to see some awesome pictures also. Prove me wrong, please.

Check IanD's gallery with owls. A lot of them have been shot with the 400 f/5.6

I should point out that IanD bought that lens from me. After I sold it to him, I recognized my mistake, so bought another one, new. The net loss in that little exchange was something like $600.00. I doubt I'll ever have the success that Ian had with his Grey Owl shots. They are spectacular.

And here's a couple of 100% crops of the moon from a few days ago. Note the total absence of CA around the high-contrast edges. Not even one pixel.

Some owls. I love owls, it's so hard to pick a representative sample from the shots I've got but I think these are OK:

And finally some small birds, almost all of these will have been taken with the addition of a 12mm or 20mm extension tube to reduce the minimum focus distance.

Oh wow! I never realised you could use an extension tube with a long telephoto. I've only ever used them for close up macro work. How useful.

Wow, what can I say foxbat - brilliant. I have been wanting a 400mm but always wondered what it could do outside of birds - well I guess you have put my mind straight on that.
Thank you for posting these I have definitely made my mind up now.
Wow again
