  • Opens up a new world of nature photography.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Kingfish - October 12, 2020

    Considering that a professional 800 mm lens cost nearly 13 thousand dollars, this lens is an excellent deal. It opens up bird photography to a broader spectrum of photographers. Overall, the lens is very light and with excellent stabilization can be easily held by hand. It is sharp and the dynamic range is OK. I was worried by the f11 minimum aperture but it has been no problem yet. The great ISO capabilities of the Canon R5 helps this tremendously. Perhaps it could be a bit tougher and have better weather sealing, but for the price - I am 100% happy!!!!!

  • Fantastic!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by ATMcC - April 9, 2021

    An 800mm f/11?!? Honestly when canon announced this lens I thought they were joking but it’s amazing! It’s sharp. It’s lightweight enough to shoot handheld. It delivers great DOF. The auto focus is fast. I’ve shot a lot of wildlife with this lens and even though I’m using the cheapest R-series camera (EOS RP) which does NOT have animal eye AF, I’m getting amazing photos. Don’t overthink it. Just buy it!

  • Excellent IQ for the Price
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Birder - February 5, 2021

    For the price this is a surprisingly excellent in IQ. Of course, for anyone who knows anything about lenses would know prior to purchasing it that its f/11 poses some limitations. Given the latest camera bodies that handle high ISO better and the advanced NR softwares available, such as Topaz AI DeNoise, this lens can shine given decent enough ambient light. For anyone looking for a lens that produces beautiful bokeh, look for something else. Sure, it doesn't come with the weather sealed protection, but I'll take its lightness and the cost over shooting in rain and snow. The hood is outrageously expensive, but I decided to get it rather than waiting for a third-party hood. It's a good thing that I got the hood, because I dropped the R5 with the lens attached on my first out testing the lens. The hood took the initial blow and saved both the lens and the body except for some permanent scuff marks sustained. Guess I already paid for the hood.
