PetaPixel reviewed Canon’s new monster with lots of sample images and also test the built-in 1.4x extender. Below are some excerpts from the review:

  • The image quality of the Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L is, in a word, excellent. Even when shot wide-open at f/4 or f/5.6, the contrast and sharpness of the lens is very good.
  • Autofocus is very fast and decisive, even on the EOS 5D Mk IIIbody
  • “Sharpness” is the middle name of the Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L.
