EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x Review from TDP

From The Digital Picture
Bryan has completed his full review of the Canon EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x (we’re still working on ours). As expected, the review is a glowing one as this lens performs unbelievably well for a zoom.

Says Bryan:
“If the f/4 max aperture is not an issue for you, the Canon EF 200-400mm f/4 L IS USM Ext 1.4x Lens, by virtue of its focal length range, can replace several other lenses in your kit. It will deliver stunning image quality and should stand up to professional use. I’m still integrating this lens into my kit, but … I have been using it for almost everything I shoot since it arrived. I expected awesomeness and the 200-400 L delivered it.”

LensRentals.com Tests the EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x

LensRentals.com Tests the EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x

From LensRentals.com
Roger over at LensRentals.com has taken some time to test a variety of Canon 400mm lenses, including the new EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x.

Roger’s initial take…
“I can’t say whether it’s worth the price or not, but I can certainly say it’s the sharpest zoom lens I’ve ever seen, with image quality rivaling the most expensive primes.”

He did note however, that the 200-400 is a bit shorter at the long end than the EF 400 f/2.8L IS II. They’ve come to the initial conclusion that it’s about 95% of the 400 2.8 primes focal length.

The EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x Has Arrived!

Retail Version!
I was sitting around staring at the ceiling today, then the doorbell rang, and behold, the EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x had arrived. A great sadness poured over my wife’s face, as she realized I would be gone all weekend.

It’s good to know that it’s actually real and shipping to retailers, it looks like it’s going to be a fun weekend!

I’m also planning to head back to Kenya in June if everything lines up, as it will be the perfect place to put this lens through its paces.

The EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x Has Landed in Canon Warehouses

Oh Joy!
I have confirmation that quantities of the EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x have landed in Canon warehouses in Canada and the United States. The lenses will be allocated and shipped to retailers in the next 48 hours if all goes to plan.

Not that anyone is looking forward to the lens or anything…….

We should have ours by Monday, and I have found the perfect cat and brick wall to test the lens out on.
