I got the new Canon EF-L f/5.6 400mm lens today and had to try out the range as early as I can :) The following pics are from a paddy field near Maddur in Bengaluru - Mysuru road:
This being my first experience with a real tele photo lens, with a not so impressive maximum aperture (f/5.6) and no IS, I decided to play safe with ISO-400. The first two pics are 1/1000s @ f/5.6 and the last one is 1/640s for the same aperture. For the third pic, I tried out ISO-100 and had 1/250s and f/5.6.
I also got a 2X converter and tried it out, but didnt get any decent pictures @ f/11 (2X converter will make f/5.6 of 400mm lens to f/11), no Auto Focus (EOS400D cannot Auto Focus @ a max aperture of f/11) and no IS.
