Reviewed: Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM, Wildlife at the Beach

Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM

Get Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM at B&H Photo.

I put the new Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM to the test on a beautiful windless 70° winter day at the beach yesterday.

Included are extreme backlighting shots, a closeup and general variety, focusing on the mid to long end of the zoom range using image stabilization handheld.

Examples Handheld, Beach Wildlife (Canon 5D Mark III)

Includes HD and UltraHD images in as well as large crops.

I discuss the ergonomics and “fun factor” and usability aspects also. I am impressed with the Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM. It is a huge bump up in multiple ways over its predecessor (which I never liked).

At about $2199, the new 100-400 is a lens every Canon shooter looking for range should be taking a hard look at (review includes discussion of that also). And it might well displace the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II for some shooters.
