An excellent Canon L series lens

Advantages: Solid build quality, excellent results, quick focussing, quiet motor
Disadvantages: Rather expensive, could be heavy if carrying around all day

New prices are around the £1100-1300 mark - I saw a second hand one in my local camera shop last spring for around £800 and jumped at the chance. Hardly used at the time, but I've made up for that now.... As an aviation photographer who specialising in ...

Review of Canon 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 AF

A serious lens for serious photographers!

Advantages: image quality, image stabilising feature
Disadvantages: Not cheap

This lens is a major purchase, as the typical retail price is £1,200-1,300. However, if you are keen on sports or wildlife photography the price is fully justified: The image quality is superb, very sharp, great colours. I first used this lens to photo ...

Review of Canon 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 AF

TC80 - very expensive. Alternatives save you up to £90

Advantages: Canon - None unless you are a badge snob. Alternative - 1/3rd the price, does exactly the same.
Disadvantages: Canon - Expensive! Alternative - none really, plastic could be better but you've just saved £90

I had a play with one of these in a few shops all the time trying to justify to myself the expense of £130. After a bit of deliberation I decided I couldn't justify that much on a remote release so looked on Amazon at alternatives. I purchased a compa ...
