Default Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS USM

was looking in the 'lens sample image archive' and saw that this super lens was missing.
So, start posting those sharp pictures!!
Or are there no POTN-members who own this lens? (can't believe that )



ps: can a moderator put this topic in de archive-topic?

This has been added to the archive, but it would certainly help if we had some shots. So, let's see some pics people.

Greetings all. Below is my first post to this forum. If this one goes well, I have a couple of other pictures I will add as examples. Great forum. Hope my contribution helps.

Shot from outside fence about 20 feet from foul line. You can see a part of second base by his foot to give you some distance reference. Settings: f/4 1/3200 0ev ISO200

Thanks Dom. I think you would love the 300 as well. A buddy has one and it is an awsome product and is not quite the load the 400 is. I am currently looking for a sherpa to help me lug the 400 around.

Taken during rally Norway. It was snowing quite heavily during this stage but got a few nice pictures anyway.

Apart from the AF inconsistency, the Mark III is the pick. Although I really like the separation one gets from a FF camera.
