Re: Is the Canon 100-400mm a sharp enough lens?

My first 100-400L was not that sharp, & I sold it several years ago. However I recently took a chance & bought another one . This one is very sharp(I've been told exceptionly so by some) & it is super convenient for wildlife hunting while hiking back country or shooting from the car on back country roads. I really like it lot!

Thank you GlynH! I work as an animal keeper at the Animal Ark wildlife sanctuary north of Reno, Nevada. We have three cheetahs that run once a week or so for exercise. This year we added photo blinds in addition to the spectator seating. Becoming very popular with photographers!

I thought this guy was running for breakfast/lunch or something? I would be worried he was looking straight at me! :smileyhappy:

 

Can I ask what body/lens/settings did you use for this shot?

 

Thanks & kind regards,

The 100-400L is  relatively sharp unless you've used the 400L f5.6 or the 70-300L. Both of these lenses are much sharper in every day use. Here's a shot with Canon 7D and 400L f5.6 and Canon 2x. Don't try this with your 100/400L and 2x, because you won't be happy with the resiults.Dragonfly

The 100-400 is the workhorse of my profession. I have had it since 2006 and only in to Canon Service once for a minor issue which was neither focus or mechanical.
