Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens! I purchased this lens soon after it became available in the USA. I have been a Canon user for many years. My primary use is animal photos, usually from a rather large distance., and this lens is the best I have ever used. It's not for everyone, it's big and heavy and costly, but the performancy is fantastic! I highly recomend this lens if you need a lens of this length. Only suggestion to improve it would be changes to the tripod mount. The 1/4 " hole is way too far back, making the lens nose heavy, otherwise it's the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely the BEST! This lens is a dream come true. I shoot wildlife, often at a distance, and this lens is amazing. The lens is sharp as a tack and, when mounted on a gimbal head, very easy to handle. Auto Focus is super fast and quiet. Used a 2X converter and had great results. My first extensive use of the lens was in Yellowstone and Grand Teton this past November. We hit all kinds of weather and the lens never disappointed. All in all I got some of the best photographs of my life. This lens puts you right there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't say enough......... Hmmmm, where to start. My job as a photojournalist and my hobby as an aviation photographer depend on good equipment. No ifs, ands or buts about it. The image stabilized Canon 800mm F5.6 is a photographers dream. It is relatively lightweight for the focal length and the smoothest and fastest focus lens I own. The lens brings even the farthest subjects into a realistic possibility. The workmanship and machinery are top notch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best telephoto lens I own Resolution has always been my highest priority and this lens certainly is the best. The auto-focus features are superb. After using the 600mm f/4 L lens for years trading it in for the 800 was the best trade I've ever made. It is lighter, a longer focal length and the stabilizing features are excellent. Would recommend a gimbal tripod head, with one the system can be manipulated with ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible LENS! I finally managed to purchase this lens after 28 years of wanting a big glass. I looked at many different lens's some much less expensive and decided to go for this big gun. So far i found that the clarity and use is top notch. My photos have gone from OK to WOW! I mainly shoot wildlife and this lens lets me get those close shots that are National Geo quality without harassing the animal! I really love that as I can shoot them in more natural positions and they stay put for more opportunities for that just right position. Heavy? 9.9lbs,plus the tripod and lens mount does push down on my shoulder, but it's relevant. I can carry it for miles and only complain a little about a sore shoulder the next day. I'll get some more padding to relieve that situation. Over all I have finally got my hands on the best lens out there! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Lens I finally got my 800mm after waiting for one to be built for me. 3 months wait, but it was worth it. I bought this lens to photograph eagles this upcoming winter, but have shot pics of the moon with a 2x and a 7d (2560mm), man what unbelievable pictures. With this set up, you can just barely get the whole moon in the shot. Craters and seas jump right out at you. I would strongly suggest a gimball head set up. I am using an Induro set up, and love it. My Monfrotto ball head would support it ok, but when you losen it up to move it, you better have a good grip on the lens. I am so impressed with the quickness of the autofocus on this lense with out the 2x. It is as fast as any of my other L series lenses, and I own quite a few, and faster than my older ones. All in all, if you are looking for a fantastic super telephoto with unbelievable quality and speed, this is the lens. You may have to trade your first born for it, but it might be worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding peice of equipment I have used the 800 to shoot the worlds fastest motorcycles on the Bonneville Salt Flats. In five days I shoot over 7500 images. I hand hold the 800mm to shoot at 1/500 to 1/640 late in the day and use a mono-pod to rest it in between shots. Images of motorcycles going between 200 and 350 mph are crisp and the auot-focus is perfect for this type of work. I really enjoy working with this lens and would highly recomend this setup for anyone doing similar work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Gift ever! I got this lens as a gift from my mother. It is the best gift ever. It is very heavy and you need a tripod to use with it. I tried using a mono-pod, but had better results/luck on a tripod. I am not sure Arnold Schwarzenegger could hand-hold this one for long, even in his youth! There is a learning curve and some adjusting to get used to it, but it is a great lens for wildlife. I was lucky and got this as a gift, but if you have the $$$, it is a great lens.
