IQ is excellent, focus speed is excellent. It is an excellent lens. Good luck on the self control abuse.:-P

LOL...believe me, it's going to take a lot of restraint when I get a paycheck from some extra freelance I'm working on now;-)a But I've just paid for braces and ordered a Herman Miller chair for work....those are a higher priority then another top L lens.

While in my rough and ready hide watching the skimmers one of our boats with guests was working its way up the river towards me in the sunset.

This is why I so want this lens. Just something marvelous about a telephoto landscape like this. Love it! :)

I'm wondering how my granddaughter can hit A BIF with a phone and selfie stick at first attempt, when I spend bloody hours with this lens trying to get one decent in focus pic? :oops: :lol:

Those who have upgraded from 100-400 I to II, do you miss the push pull design (provide you liked that design)?

Yes, I do miss the push/pull. . Twisting a lens barrel is a very unnatural motion. . If you turn your hand & wrist around in a twisting motion, it (the hand and wrist) only feels totally comfortable in one position, so you either start out grabbing it in an awkward position or end up with it in an awkward position after zooming to the desired length.

rndman wrote in post #17714685 (external link)
Also is the increased weight noticeable in real world situation?

No, not at all. . Would never know it was heavier except that people here on the forum said so. . Can't notice at all.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

It costs ‎£2000 in the UK!

To put that into perspective:

.....
.....
Buy a 100-400 II: ‎£900
.....
.....

It appears as if you are first saying that it costs 2,000 pounds, but that you then later say that it costs 900 pounds. . Could you please explain the apparent discrepancy?

2xTC, LV AF focus at 16x, sturdy tripod, vernier head, cable release, IS seems better off. Might be able to do better tonight.

This crop is over 100%
