I knew how heavy this lens was but until your actually supporting it you don't really appreciate just how heavy they are :)

My 400 2.8 IS was delivered today as well. Agree about the weight but the quality is sky high.

Oh I'm jealous. Buy it now or save a bit (lot) more for the II.

I had been using the 2x Extender on my 70-200, the 400 really puts the 70-200 + 2x to shame :)

No chance I was getting the IS II. 6K for this one was hard enough.

Congrats! Looks to be in great condition. I remember at the V8 supercars at Phillip Island a pro was using one right in front me and another with a 500 f4 IS. Looked like they had seen their fair share of tracks.

Ha, I have the same body sitting next to me with a 300 f4 attached, it's dwarfed in your pic!

In a couple of months I'm hoping to ad the same, or a 500 f4. What are you planning to shoot with it?

It did take me a little while to find one in the condition I wanted and for the right price. Really happy with the condition, apart from a small mark on the hood its like new :)

Plan to shoot as much as I can with it including motor sports and water sports. Probably pick up the 1.4X for the water sports.

I just looked up the specs for this thing...13.5 pounds. That's insane.

Must make for a nice walkaround lens. :D

Being twice the size and three times the price...... I'd hope so!

I use this lens for sports, and other than the weight it is a beauty!

Couldn't help but notice, the strap is for the lens not the camera, :-)

Do you even need a camera with that lens? :)

Yes, you put it on the floor and walk around it :) Though with its size, still tiring :)

lol, if it was on the camera and someone dropped it I'd be rather surprised if it didn't rip out of the camera mount :)
