The Great Canon Supertele Test - From 800 to 1600mm

It does not happen everyday to have six of the very best Canon superteles in hands: thanks to Sandro "Ceksalo", in a cold afternoon of October 2008 I have had the opportunity to compare side-by-side my 600 f/4 IS and 300 2.8 IS with new Canon 800 f/5.6 IS, with the shorter and brighter 400 f/2.8 IS, with the interesting 400 f/4 DO and with the legendary 200 f/1.8 L (that Canon has recently replaced with the 200 f/2 IS).

The results of the test are showed here!

All the images are 100% crops from RAW files converted with the neutral settings (no contrast, no saturation, no sharpening); the photos had been taken with the 21 megapixel Canon 1DsIII, mounted on tripod. I have used only Canon teleconverters (1.4x II and 2x II). I have used mirror lock up and 10 seconds self timer and I manually focussed using live view.

By the way, next week I'm going to publish the second part of the test, with the crops at 200, 280, 300, 420, 560 and 600mm

As always, every comment and question is welcome
