5 out of 5 stars   Excellent 400mm 5.6L Lens
By Seattleclick (Washington) April 07, 2014
Review submitted for Canon EF 400mm 5.6 L USM Lens, With Canon 1-Year USA Warranty (CN40056)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: I have had numerous favorable photography gear purchases from buydig.com and my new Canon 400mm 5.6L is no exception. It's a sharp, telephoto lens with a wonderful bokeh not to mention it is rather light weight. So it's easy to carry by hand vs. requiring a tripod. The price is very reasonable considering the alternatives. Anyway, I love it and have no doubt I will get good mileage out of it.
Cons: You can't always get what you want... So it could be faster (4.0, 2.8, etc.) but it would cost significantly more. It's a little disappointing to not be able to use automatic focus with a Canon extender on 5D or 7D bodies. I tried it with my 1.4x on my 7D and manual focus is extremely challenging. My keepers were low but perhaps I would have better luck with a tripod in that case.
Other Comments: Heard mixed results when taping the pins to get the center autofocus to work with an extender. So I didn't even bother especially considering how slow autofocus would be...

4 out of 5 stars   very reasonable comprimise
By Jack the amateur (San Diego, CA) August 01, 2010
Review submitted for Canon EF 400mm 5.6 L USM Lens, With Canon 1-Year USA Warranty (CN40056)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Nice Bokeh, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction, Good quality case, Lightweight, Rugged, Consistent Output, Integrated lens hood, Easily Interchangeable, Durable
Cons: Poor in Low Light, No Image Stabilization
Other Comments: This lens is light enough to carry comfortably in its case on a belt and/or with the shoulder strap and cheap enough for some of us to buy without a mortgage on the house. This is possible because it does not have IS and it is limited to an aperture of F 5.6, which are its cons. But even in overcast daytime light I can take good quality photos without a tripod by increasing ISO to around 400.
