Here are a few small jpgs from a recent India trip. I love this lens because of its sharpness, light weight and compactness. Mounted on a 5Dll.

Not very fast for low light concerts, but these were shot on a 5Dmkll handheld at an ISO of 2500. Nice detail...

Just returned from a week in south Florida and the Everglades. Visited excellent bird sites at Loxahatchee, Tigertail Beach on Marco Island, Shark Valley, Anhinga trail in Everglades Park, and others... Used my 400 with some fill flash, with some great results. Sharper than my 70 to 200 2.8 for most situations. Looking forward to getting down there again!

How close did you get? It looks as if you were only 5 yds/meters away.

Some of the birds were very close, about 10 feet away, others about 30. With the 5Dmk2 full frame I can crop substantially and keep the quality high. I've got about 4000 other pictures last week of the full bodied birds and alligators,  but I seem to enjoy getting close to their heads, especially if it's still sharp. Most of the sites I went to have birds and gators that aren't spooked as much by humans, so it wasn't too hard getting close. I also use Aperture fyi... Al.

(Don't try this at home - it's uncropped on a full frame body and he's hissing because I'm too close)

Got to rent this lens this fall and wow talk about a sharp lens when its paired up with the 6D.  I have been thinking about buying this lens for the holidays if it goes back on sale.

Here are a couple of Loon pictures shot with my 7D and the 400 f/5.6. A very sharp - and relatively inexpensive - 400mm option; you just have to have it on a tripod, or have a high shutter speed, to avoid camera shake and the lens really shines.
