Canon EF 500mm f4L lens review – Florida field trip

Canon's EF 500mm f4L IS USM is a super-telephoto lens adored by wildlife and sports photographers alike. The focal length, equivalent to 800mm on a cropped-frame body, delivers decent-sized images of distant subjects, while the f4 maximum aperture allows you to isolate them with a very shallow depth-of-field. It's a superb lens but don't let the huge price tag put you off - for less than you think, you could rent one for a special event, which is exactly what I did for a recent trip to Florida to view a Space Shuttle launch. Find out why it ended up being my favourite lens in my Canon 500mm review, which includes a brand new video showing it in action.
