ISO was high with this - hence the noise

I love this lens.  Something made me buy it 2 years ago, used, and today it's worth about $2K more than I paid.  But I can't think of selling it.  In fact I dream of obtaining it's 200mm and 600mm siblings and having a little family of them.  It's  dream to shoot with, assuming you have a monopod, or tripod with the right head.  I have a 2X and 1.4X multiplier that I also purchased used.  These really add to the lenses usefulness.

I have the oppertunity to buy one of these lenses used for about $5000 Australian. The lens nearly unused and in perfect condition. Is this a good price? I'm having trouble finding used copies of this lens online to compare the price with. 1) There doesn't really appear to be too many and 2) The search results get mixed with the version II lens. I really don't NEED the lens, though at this price it seems hard to pass up.

Excellent very sharp moon shot - thanks for posting.
Taken with the 1.4x or 2x TC or both together?
Is there enough detail in the image to enlarge/crop further - to show some crater detail?
Would one get the same detail with same lens but with say a 550D?
Title: Re: Canon 400 f/2.8 IS
Post by: johankh on April 04, 2012, 08:14:54 AM
FarQinell. its with both together and the Kenko 12 between
I'll think you get the same detail with a 550D....

More crop? well this is more, but it starts to look really bad

Thanks for the extra image.
Just shows that you have a remarkable lens here.
Although about the same weight as the 600/4 and the 800/5.6 the extra f stop and shorter length of the 400/2.8 should make it easier to handle than the other two behomoths!!!!

The 400 f/2.8 is about the same to handle as the 600 f/4, although the extra focal legth makes it more difficult to hand hold it steady

Biggest problem with the 600 f/4 is that the minimum focus distance is a bit on the long side, whereas the 400 focuses much closer

I had a chance to shoot pro surfing.  Was pretty fun.  i had the biggest lens on the beach, including the press, untill a guy showed up with a 600m f4.  But I had a 1.4X and 2X extender, so i like to think i still won.

Thanks!  I guess you can't gauge how many people shoot with this based on posts here.  People with the new VII are probably just more excited and post more often. And of course it is a super-tele, and thus relatively rare.

I think I've finally found you in this photo. Are you lying down, wearing a grey t-shirt just in front of the orange umbrella?

I don't think I appear in the photo.  The glasses are angled too far away from me.  The big guy in the orange mucle T is a friend of mine, and i think was 5- feet away, and between me and the beach.  I have the big 400 on a tripod with gimble head, so i think i'd stand out.

Here are 2 more similar photos.  These pics are me at pro surf contests, looking for targets on the beach with the 400.  I appear in the first one on the right in a yellow T-shirt.

Thanks!  Love this lens, and so affordable.  Well, vs version II. :) 
This was my first piece of "pro" gear, and has served me well for about 6 years.

Very nice shots, GMC. I heard about the red moon on internet radio earlier today. I don't think we got it here in SEA but I may be wrong. Your shots just go to show how an old lens can still produce the goods! Thanks for sharing.
