Hope I didn't make a mistake I sold mt 100-400 to get this lens. By the way I didn't know they were in stock yet?

i will do comparison tomorrow and sat with the 1dx, 5d iii, 100-400, 200-400, 70-300L 300 2.8 II and 600 ii.

On the 70D I felt like the AF was underwhelming, especially at 600mm. some of the shots are in AIservo, but some where not. I don't feel it locked on instantly or very snappy.

It may (and probably will) be a different beast on the 1dx and 5d iii.

Despite my criticisms, for the money, i think this lens is magnificent even if it is just for the range.

Thanks... this helps; I'm going to hold until someone MFA's it to see whether it can be improved. It's not bad, especially for the range and price, but...

Awesome pictures. Now I know this lens is really good addition to my EF300mm sounds like this lens is a real winner, As soon as I get it I will try to do Micro adjustments I have not done it before, my 300 and this lens would be a good start to do MA.

Thanks for sharing Bigcountry.

Bigcountry thanks for the post up. From where I'm sitting the money/FL ratio is very nice indeed. When mine gets here from Adorama I'll run it through Reiken FoCal. Looking forward to your comparison amongst all the different Canon bodies.

Awesome! looking forward to your results!

You will probably/potentially have the best comparisons on the internet then at the moment.

I wouldn't mind seeing some stopped down to F8. Hate to sound demanding. ;) Can't wait to see the results!

Looking at those dog shots, I don't think they look THAT bad. They are in lower contrast lighting it looks light, and also higher ISO/lower shutter speeds.

However, I got similar quality/better quality shots I think, at like 1/80th second indoors, in the camera shop. I do feel I've gotten a bit better at stabilizing my lens without IS, since I mainly use my 135 F/2.

Check these 4 images out at the top of my page.

Or this one,

http://www.flickr.com …@N07/1199627398​4/sizes/o/ (external link)


Yes, it could be better, BUT, look at my settings!

Settings: 1/50th ƒ/6.3 ISO 1000 600 mm

This is handheld, indoors! I feel I can hold pretty steady, but even still. This is pretty f***in good imo at that slow of a shutter speed.

These are RAW, Unsharpened (0 sharpening in Lightroom) and nothing adjusted on all 4 images, except bumping up the exposure a tad.

More to come. I just wanted to mess around with the lens/do this quick.

You have done really really good here man, Those shots are really sharp IMO with the slow shutter like that.

Also waiting for Bigcountry's comparison.

For right around a grand it looks like a hell of a deal, especially considering the reach. Stick that sucker on a crop sensor and the effective reach is close 1,000mm.

I am very tempted to buy one of these, simply because the alternatives are either fixed-focal-length and 50% more expensive (E.g. 400mm f/5.6 + 1.4tc) or god-awful more expensive ($12k anyone?) And the TC does hurt image quality over the "not."

But the question becomes whether I'll be happy with what I can get with this lens. I'm on the fence, if you can't tell..... and it sure as hell is enticing....

there's much easier ways, i have a program that allows me to just put my mouse over the image, and the exif data shows up at the bottom of the pic
