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.

Show your pictures!

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.


I'm not short. I'm concentrated awesome!

An invitation to post images from the 400 f/5.6L? I accept! Here's some sports shots to kick off with:

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
Rob
