Canon EF 400mm f/4 DO IS USM

Canon EF 400mm f/4 DO IS USM

"The lens is super sharp, lightweight compared to equivalent EF L lens with IS. I find myself using this lens more and more. Adapts well to Canon's 1.4X TC with little loss of IQ, although AF speed suffers a tiny bit. Never need a tripod with this baby!!" bhphotovideo.com

Pentax SMC DA* 300mm f/4 ED SDM

Pentax SMC  DA* 300mm f/4 ED SDM

"Stellar performer. Very sharp, and works well with in-body stabilisation, which is more noticable/effective at this focal length. Suprisingly good bokeh! This has now become my default lens bushwalking, with a shorter macro and wide prime in the bag. Very versatile thanks to close minimum focus distance. Not as big as imagined. About as heavy as expected (not light, but probably good for this class of lens). Overall GREAT and well worth the investment." bhphotovideo.com
