Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS 1.4x Hands-On Review

Canon 200-400mm

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.
