Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS 1.4x Review (the ultimate wildlife lens)

EF 200-400mm f/4L IS 1.4x

Snow goose in flight, Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, New Mexico, USA. Canon EOS 7D, EF 200-400mm f/4L IS 1.4X@ 400mm (credits: Richard Bernabe, image used with permission)

Richard Bernabe, an internationally renowned landscape, wildlife, and travel photographer, published a review the Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS 1.4x lens, a professional “toy” that sells for ridiculous $12,000 (Amazon | Adorama | B&H). He used an EOS 7D and an EOS 5D Mark III for his shootings.

About the auto-focus he writes:

The 200-400mm f/4L offers lightening-quick, smooth, and incredibly accurate auto-focus capabilities for Canon EOS cameras. The lens focuses so fast and so effortlessly, that you literally cannot see it happening in the viewfinder

The lens is “pretty damned sharp – both with the extender and without” and “is impervious to almost any weather Mother Nature can throw at you“. From the conclusion:

Is the lens “worth” it? Who the hell knows? It will be worth it to some photographers and certainly not worth it to others. As a professional nature and wildlife photographer, it’s the lens I’ve waiting on for a long time. It’s the ultimate wildlife lens, period. But I already knew that two years ago before I ever got my hands on it. The only question was whether Canon delivered a clunker or hit a home run with the finished product. It appears to be the latter.

Watermark Your Photos The Easy Way with This Free Application (Windows/Canon only)


A new little free application - ImageArtist, developed by Michael Lee – to watermark your photos with your name (or any other copyright information). The application is for Windows only, and works only with photos taken with Canon cameras:

ImageArtist automatically extracts the owner’s name from an image’s metadata and losslessly (ImageArtist employs a lossless JPEG algorithm for no image degradation!) stamps it, along with the year, onto an image copy.  An owner’s name is entered into Canon cameras via EOS Utility, ZoomBrowser EX, or ImageBrowser EX.

No installation is required. An easy way to quickly put a stamp on your pics.
