Re: I've been using the 100-400 for a while now - totally agree

It's not a perfect lens - but the combination of size, cost, zoom range, and performance is fantastic.

The weather sealing is solid as well - used it a few times in pouring rain (shooting wave close ups during 'storm season') - and no issues at all.

The 'big' hood is just too much of a pain most of the time - but if I'm using it on a bright sunny day - say on safari - I think I'd bring it along. To be honest though, it doesn't fit well in my bag along with the other stuff.

I ended up getting mine for a great price- $1700 Canadian dollar from Amazon.ca

Last time I checked that was the going rate for a used one up here.

That's a great price! I paid CAD$2100 for mine at a local store last summer. I think that was with a $100 discount, too.

There‚Äôs a $200 discount right now here in the US, so the price was right at $1,600 before taxes. As I bought this one locally, that basically paid the sales tax that had to be added on.
