@ Andy ~ well that made taking the 5D3 worthwhile and as the albeit surprised official photographer I think you have done both yourself and the young lady & her family proud :D

@ Chris ~ well that/they are very creative, nicely done and something I have never tried or seen done in practice.

100-400 was one of my favourite lenses (well, before I got the 135L). Comparable to primes in good light, giving rich, vibrant images, decent IS (I could hand-hold @400mm @ 1/20sec with good results).

It does tend to struggle in low light. Also has characteristic ugly bokeh in certain circumstances.

Overall, a great lens, especially considering how old it it these days.

Hi Wayne

I echo what has been said about the 100-400mm, it is a very good lens but does struggle in low light...............if you want to see some taken with the 40D & the 100-400m have a gander at my 500px ~ specifically the cricketing images, the Vintage Motorcycles and the RAF Hawk image.

I think I used the monopod for the cricket???

HTH :)

Thanks guys. I have heard its a bit dated now, is this something I should worry about?

Is there anything else similar I should look at, that may compromise slightly in one area, but excel in another?

Lol, this looks great. I bet those guys had a great conversation about the art.

Does anyone own a Canon 100-400 L that they can offer some opinions on please?


I have a 100-400, a great lens in good light, awful in bad light. My flickr images should have exif, I'd say 70% of my aircraft shots are with it.

Wow, Dave McKean brings back memories of when I used to collect graphic novels. Love his work on Violent Cases, Hellblazer, and Sandman. Had no idea he was a local.

You should pop down and see his work, it's quite something up close.

Had one a while back, sold it only because I didn't use the 200-400 range, if I remember rightly though it was quite a nice lens to use but something else entirely in less than perfectly bright conditions.

What do you think of it?

Do you use it on the 40 d?

What sort of shooting do you use it for?

I'm interested in getting something longer than my 70-200 f4 l

Cheers. Wayne.

I echo what all the others have said. I guess it is a bit of a compromise lens in the Canon range fits between other lens; it suits what I want a long telephoto for, although sometime I could just do with something that straddles the 70 to 200 where my 24 - 105 and 100 - 400 fits into do I change lens ???

It worked fine with the 40D


Sometimes I take good photos other times !!!!

Thanks everyone. I have the 24-105 so the lower end is covered. Still umming and arhhing . What else bigger than the 70-200 is worth considering?

Maybe there's a case for swapping the 70-200 for a f/2.8 and zoom-cropping to your desired composition. You should have the sharpness and resolution to achieve that.

Or swapping for a 135L, which would put hairs on your chest.

I had people with very strong views about the 70-200 2.8 threaten me when I mentioned getting one before. Lol

It'll leave a bit of a gap Wayne but the Sigma 120-300 f2.8 is worth a punt. Avoid using a UV filter and all the soft focus/yellow cast problems go away.

You might consider a converter for your 70 - 200 f4 try hiring one to see if it does what you want

Hadn't considered the Sigma. Might have a look.

I thought my 70-200 and a converter weren't compatible.?
