Canon EF 800mm f5.6 L IS USM Test Shots

During Canon PhotoMarathon Singapore 2008, there was a mammoth lense on display, it was non other than the Canon EF 800mm f5.6 L IS USM !

While waiting for the Themes to be announced in between sessions, I went foward to check out the lense and attached my Canon EOS 30D onto it and tested it out for myself. It was a very different experience, as my longest lense was only a 250mm and I confessed a bit lost while trying to focus the objects on the EF 800mm super telephoto lense.

Finally, after some friendly advice from the Canon staff, I managed to capture some photos and I was amazed to see the sharpness ! Took a few more photos using the EF 800mm lense before returning it back to my seat.

Well, it’s very rare for me to test a super telephoto lense and I am very impressed by it. Wonder when I would be able to use it in action ?
