Canon - EF 600mm f4.0L IS USM Autofocus Lens
Quick Overview |
This lens is ideal for sports and wildlife photography. The newly designed optical system has one fluorite element and two UD-glass elements to obtain high resolution and high contrast. Also, the minimum focusing distance was reduced to 18 ft. (5.5m). Extender EF 2x II can be attached to increase the focal length to 1200mm while retaining AF (at the center focusing point with the EOS-1v and EOS-3).

Comments | [11/12/05] This lens is now my favorite football lens. Focuses really fast and is tac sharp. Images are very sharp using a 1.4x converter too. Now, all I need is to have all of the games I shoot be during the day! Dan.

Comments | [11/03/05] It's looks pretty impressive, but it isn't quite the technological marvell that I think the 400 f2.8 is (it's also lighter and eaiser to handle than the 400). I have generally needed to use this lens in conjunction with teleconverters which has made the f4 maximum aperture a bit of a problem at times. That aside, the construction, autofocus and weather proofness of this lens are all top grade, and if the f4 factor doesn't get in your way then you won't be displeased with it.
