Canon EF 400mm F/5.6L USM Review
The Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM is definitely one of the “super” lenses as the Canon manufacturer has rightfully branded it. These lenses have been built to produce super quality images and the design is also super in itself.
There are quite a number of added features that make these lenses superior to the previous versions. The first thing to always check out on a camera lens is the build quality. The Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM is solidly built and looks very attractive. This would definitely impress you at first sight. The lens is narrow and long and also very light. Its weight is even not comparable to its size and this is fairly impressive. It also has a built-in-slide-out lens which serves a great purpose in the care and handling of the lens and is very convenient.
When using this camera lens, the first thing that you will notice is that it internally focuses very fast. This is a big plus as there is no hassle in trying to use the focus ring in order to get the right focus. It uses a Ring USM which comprises of an ultrasonic motor that facilitates the quiet and quick focusing of the lenses. One other thing that is of great concern and any prospective buyer would be looking for is the image quality. The Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM offers fantastic images. Most notably are the image colours, concentration and contrast where the lens does perfectly. The kinds of images you get from this lens are of the highest quality and you would definitely be impressed.
One way to enable the lens to produce these pin-point accurate images is the eight blade aperture. The image sharpness is also excellent. You will get extremely sharp images that will fit right into full frame corners. However, to achieve this you have to keep the lens still during exposure. One thing that these lenses lack is image stability. Holding these lenses with your hands and focusing does not give the best quality images. It needs extremely stable hands in order to get steady images. However, using a tripod or monopod stand would be a solution to this problem.
Another notable thing is that the Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM is compatible with all types of Canon extenders. You do not have to worry about the kind of Canon extender that you need to purchase as these lenses work well with most of the available Canon extenders in the market. The Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM is a good kind of lens to be used in field activities as well as photography. These lenses are good in capturing wildlife as well as nature in general. These will serve you well with no complication at all as well as long life without getting spoilt.
