Canon 800mm f/5.6L IS

Just published in DAP is my review of the Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L IS super telephoto lens.

The EF 800mm f/5.6L IS (about $10,900) is Canon’s longest currently available telephoto, and requires special handling to make sharp images, a topic I discuss in my review, along with some study of how well image stabilization works on a tripod. Various landscape examples as well as wildlife examples are shown (Bighorn Sheep).

A “big” thanks to B&H Photo for making a brand-new copy of this lens available for review!

The Canon 800mm f/5.6L IS is capable of very sharp results, but there are a host of gremlins that will degrade the potential quality— don’t expect to start using this lens and instantly get great results (unless you already know how to operate a super telephoto).
