Australian photographer Joshua Holko recently had the opportunity to shoot for several days with the upcoming Canon 200-400mm f/4L IS lens. (Recall that we had one of the first hands-on reports of this lens from Jeff Cable using the lens at the 2012 London Olympics.)
Holko put together a brief video review that touches on some of the key aspects of the lens, including the overall image quality compared to lenses like the Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS, its use with the Canon 2x teleconverter and the rumored $11k-$13k price point.

Pretty nice review! Good job!
I’m now just wondering what would happen if you put this bad boy on 7D or APS-H camera?
Ricky Jones says
Excellent review, it’s too bad Canon priced this camera out of the reach of so many people, because it appear to be a excellent lens. Thanks again for a great review.
Chris Hansen says
I am in total agreement with you on this one Ricky. The majority of Canon’s long lenses are way beyond my reach to purchase.
I think most of “us” will end up renting this lens!! It’s gonna be way out of my budget!!!

I don’t think this guy has a clue!
