Canon EF 500mm f/4.0 L IS USM Lens

 

The Canon EF 500mm f/4.0 L IS USM Lens is considered a Super Telephoto Lens

I was laughing when I took the picture, but I have gotten many more laughs from the online discussions that have occurred over this picture. Just to set the record straight ... 1. I did not use the 500 to tie the girl down. 2. I did not make her carry...

Canon 500D Close-up Lens Review

Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS USM Lens Review

 

The Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS USM super telephoto lens is one of the biggest lenses in production. Canon has only made a few larger. Fortunately, its massive size and weight match the optical

Canon - IXUS 500

 

There is little doubt that Canon is a market leader when it comes to digital cameras, and the IXUS range is right at the top of company's popularity tables. Digital cameras get 'refreshed' at regular periods, ...

The IXUS 500 is a smashing little camera that does pretty much all you'd expect from something that's basically an upgrade to the already decent IXUS 400. However it rankles that for all the attention to design detail, Canon chooses not to supply a...

Great lens if your budget can afford it

 

Using primarly for shooting wildlife. Takes some getting used to to be able to track fast moving objects due to the limited field of view. Produces very sharp images even when used with the 1.4 Extender II. Can be hand held very briefy, a bean bag or...

Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS USM review by macman

 

I had always dreamed of owning a big white one day, well that day came and what a lens it turned out to be. Fantastic image quality, even with the 1.4 converter it produces stunning images.

Weight, but then I suppose that is to be expected

Canon EF 500mm f4 IS USM Lens

 

What a great lens, I used a friends and that had me hooked. There is nothing like a prime lens. I considered the 600mm, but 4lbs extra weight kills hand holding for birds in flight. So far I have some great keepers which are much improved over my...
