Canon EF 100-400mm F 4.5-5.6 L USM IS Review

The Canon EF 100-400mm f 4.5-5.6 L USM IS is for Canon SLR Cameras and is equipped to capture any fast paced action from a distance and to clearly zoom something that has a blurry background.


The length of the lens is shorter than expected and becomes much shorter because of the push/pull zoom feature. But, as a whole, it is still bigger than what a typical camera bag can accommodate. It can be carried separately by detaching the lens from the body. It is heavy to carry which is one of its drawbacks. There is a need to familiarize oneself in using the pull/push zoom feature of the Canon lens. However, it is easy to learn. This lens gives sharp and detailed images and is priced reasonably. The resolution, the color, the image quality is above-par. It works in every season, too. Pictures taken in the rain look sharp also. You might need a monopod or a tripod to be able to control the camera better, much more if extended at 400mm.


The Canon EF is an outdoor lens. If used inside, the pictures will not be as great as with the daylight. The Canon EF 100-400nn is perfect for distances and small animals. Six or seven feet away, the pictures are still detailed and amazing even with very small insects like flies, dragon flies, bees, and the like. It is as good as advertised. Most of the users are happy with the purchase. Getting help for any problem with this lens is not easily solicited from Canon. Returning an item or refunding takes a lot of time and most of the technical supports are too busy to help. The Canon EF is pricey, but, it is a good investment especially to those whose line of work is related to cameras.


Overall, the Canon EF 100-400mm is an amazing lens that produces astounding pictures. Images are so sharp and detailed, colors are deep and crisp, details are clear. It seems better than the actual scenario where you are quite distracted by a lot of things like dusty wind, smoke, and blurry human eyes. With the Canon EF 100-400mm, it is like looking through a perfect eye. It is definitely worth every penny.

  • Pros:
    Excellent Quality Pictures Sharp Resolutions

    Pricey Heavy
