Beauty.
I've been kicking around the idea of getting the 100-400 II. I just don't know if I'll use it enough to justify the cost. I rarely pull out the Big Tammy, but my 70-200 gets good use.

I seriously considered the 100-400II but with my 100-400 v1 I was always at 400 and always wanting more so I settled on the 150-600 Siggy instead. I looked at the 100-400II with a 1.4 t-con and thought that the Siggy did better. So far I haven't been disappointed. It's bit of a challenge to handhold past 400mm, but that would be true of any long lens.

I'm using my 70-200 more than my 100-400 II, but that's because of physical limitations, plus I love the 70-200. Beyond that I don't really use my 100-400 II enough to justify keeping it. At some point after surgery, I bought the 24-70L f/4 IS. It's got some seriously good macro capabilities, and the IS really helps me out too. I need to send my 24-70 f/2.8 II in to canon to have focus adjusted. It's just not playing nice now.

I've hand held the 100-400 II in really good light, but I normally have it on a tripod . Makes life easier.

How long has that lens been out? When I was looking for a 24-70, I ended up wth the Tamron because the Canon 2.8 didn't have IS. I didn't know there was a Canon 24-70 f/4 IS. The Tamron is sharp, but in AF it searches more than I'd like.

2014 I think. I believe Chet has it too. Mine came from Adorama. I found the box in my office. It's a very sweet lens.

I do have it. Wicked sweet lens. I actually loved the 28-135 until I picked this one up. My brother now has the 28-135. Good times. I've also used the Tamron, and was never impressed. I picked the Canon up as a refurb from Canon.

I was always disappointed with my 28-135 until I got the 50D and was able to MFA the lens. I think it got a bad rep because of FF/BF issues in pre-MFA bodies or bodies without MFA.

When I bought my first 5D, it came with the 28-135. The pair were made for each other. I couldn't get the lens to focus on the 60D I had at the time (no MFA on the 60D) so when I sold the 5D, I let the lens go with it. It had horrible lens creep, but always nailed focus on the 5D.

Also worked perfectly on the xti, so did my 50 1.4. On the 1dmk3, the 50 doesn't really focus at all and the 28-135 was just ok.

I had 3 copies of the 50 1.4 and not one of them was sharp. And one of them, the USM wheezed like it had asthma. The best 50mm I've bought is the new 50mm 1.8 STM.
