Canon EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II USM Lens Review
From ePHOTOzine conclusion :
“As you might expect from a lens that commands such a high price, this lens performs superbly as far as sharpness is concerned. Diffraction appears to be the ceiling for performance, with this lens delivering outstanding sharpness across the frame at maximum aperture. Although sharpness in the centre of the frame peaks at f/5.6, on the whole, performance is reduced gradually as the aperture is stopped down. It would be a big ask for Canon to defeat physics to improve performance in this respect. Sharpness remains excellent across the frame, until the aperture is stopped down beyond f/11.”
The EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II USM is a compact, lightweight super telephoto lens that is ideal for sports and wildlife photography. The lens weighs half of what its EF 400mm f/2.8L counterpart does, and claims four additional stops of shutter speed thanks to Canon’s optical image stabilization.
