Review: Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II

Friend of the site Dustin Abbott has completed a comprehensive review of Canon’s brand new EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II. If you head over to his review, there’s also a full video review if you prefer to watch instead of read.

From Dustin

I’m not finding much to criticize with this lens. It isn’t cheap, but it is a pretty killer optic with a pro grade build quality. It’s expensive ($2199), but no more so than Canon’s 70-200 f/2.8L or 24-70 f/2.8L variants. When compared with the higher end telephotos, however, it is a great bargain. It offers great reach in a compact package that most users should be able to handhold due to its manageable weight and excellent image stabilizer. It has amazing image quality with next to no real shortcomings. I love my Canon 70-300L and have enjoyed my Tamron 150-600 VC, but this lens has left me in a conundrum. I am strongly considering selling both of these lens in exchange for the new Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM II. I like it that much.

Stock of this lens is extremely scarce and I suggest pre-ordering it as soon as you’re able if you want to be able to have one for the spring.

From TDP
“The Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II is in an elite class of lenses, capable of producing prime-grade image quality at all available aperture and focal length settings. Put a very useful focal length range into a ruggedly-built, pro-grade lens with fast and accurate AF, very effective image stabilization and very impressive image quality and it is destined to be a very popular model. I highly recommend this lens….”  Read the full review

Canon EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II & EF 400 f/4 DO IS II To Begin Shipping This Week

Canon EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II & EF 400 f/4 DO IS II To Begin Shipping This Week

The brand new and highly anticipated Canon EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II will begin shipping on Friday, December 12, 2014 from various USA retailers. We expect to see a few start shipping a bit earlier in Asia. We’re told initial stock levels are going to be quite high to match the preorder numbers. B&H Photo, Adorama and Amazon all ship preorders on a first come, first serve basis. We’ve heard reports of sites claiming their preorders get front of the line treatment from the big retailers, which simply isn’t true.

The Canon EF 400 f/4 DO IS II is also scheduled to start shipping on Friday, December 12, 2014 from US retailers. We don’t know how many of these are going to be out there or how long preorder lists currently are.
