I do mostly action shots for boat racing and this lens serves me well. I was debating for a long time if I would go with the 300mm 2.8, 400 2.8 or this 200-400 f4. 300mm would have been too short on several occasions and 400mm too long on several occasions as well.

I primarily shoot larger animals from less than 100 yards away; the flexibility of this zoom lens has helped me capture images that I would not otherwise have been able to get.

I've been shooting with this lens for the last two years and prior to that the first version for four and a half years. It is as fine a lens as can be had for birds in flight, hand carried, as well as anything else. It's versatility is second to none.

I use the previous AFS 200-400 F4 VR1 I've used this lens to cover everything from local theater productions, minor league baseball, pro rodeo and youth soccer leagues to the FEI World Cup Finals (show jumping, dressage) and this lens can't be beat when you need a fast long zoom.

  • +

    1) Fast, 2) Zoom is invaluable when shooting many sporting events where the action moves all over the field., 3) Vibration Reduction is great for venues with poor lighting

  • -

    1) Heavy!!!, 2) Definitely need a monopod or tripod when using., 3) Did I mention that it is heavy?, 4) Large (with the hood attached the lens is in the 20" long range)! Can be unwieldy when the action comes in close.
