Thanks John_T. I did not realize that the original came out that long ago. It it even older than I was originally thinking. I need to look into it. I love my 400 mm f/4.5L prime, but having a long zoom to compliment the 70-200 f/4L would be a nice to have.

I just sold my beloved 400mm f/5.6L prime as well, with this Zoom, that prime is no longer needed,.. or in fact of much use at all. And you are hearing this from someone that has advocated that prime for over a decade. This zoom is juts that good, it completely replaces both the old zoom and the old prime.

Wow, that's some sloppy packaging! Glad the lens survived this poor treatment.


[nellyle;17490264]It certainly is! If you're going to plaster your name all over the tape and box, at least put some effort in!

I can promise you it will not have looked anything like this when it left us. :-(

Actually that's not Adorama's doing. That box was sculpted with the help of UPS. ;-)a

I've seen worse, but that's no excuse for the disgraceful handling by some delivery guys.

Adorama generally packs stuff very well with just this kind of rough handling in mind. I suspect that the lens arrived in good shape, esp because of that and the two inch thick foam packing inside the Canon box. All that notwithstanding, as long as Helen is aware, I'm sure there will not be an issue if there is a problem with the lens.

You don't think that the bokeh isn't at least a little better (less edgy/busy) on the prime?

This is what I needed to hear Jake. I really appreciate your input. I am going to have to give the 100-400 zoom a serious look now that they have upped the generation of the lens.

Honestly, your asking the wrong guy.

This is my wildlife zoom and getting the subject is weighted to about 98% and frills like back ground blur would be weighted around 2%. So on this criteria, I have not even noticed a difference, let alone been able to measure which is better.

I am sure you are correct and the prime might have the edge, but would I EVER for a single shot, give up the advantages of AF speed, IS, close focusing, and framing option of the zoom for the old prime?

No.

I sold it this week when I realized as long as the MkII is in my possession I will never mount the prime again.
