I'm interested to hear from anyone who has used this lens. Are you pleased with the results? Does it work well with a 1.4 extender? Please post samples orlinks to pictures taken with the lens.

Thanks

My 2c...

Isn't a 300mm f/2.8 with a 1.4x a better alternative (not much weight difference... or size) and you'll always have the f/2.8 when needed plus it's cheaper...

For the same price as the 400mm DO IMO the 500mm f/4 is a better buy (which is what I did because my 120-300 f/2.8 with a 1.4x is already equivalent to 420 f/4 but a zoom instead and not much more weight as well):

Thanks NHL

All good points. I need a bit more reach than the 300 and less weight than the 500.
