Canon 5.6/400 L on Panasonic S1R

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I like to photograph birds now and then, but I don’t do this enough to warrant first rate fast lenses. I bought a used Canon 5.6/400 L and paid about 800$ and use it on a Panasonic S1R with the Sigma mount converter. It is a very capable lens and autofocus works quite well, but only S mode. The IBIS seems to work well also.

If you don't need AF-C then the Pansonics are really good cameras for the Canon lenses. I bought the 70-200 f4 non IS because of the weight advantage and have it nicely stabilized with the camera.

Looks to be doing a good job there.

I do not have the pull for birding but I do enjoy going to the Zoo and use my Leica 80-200 f4 ROM on the S1R. It stabilises very well but I do find myself wanting a little bit more pull at times.

My attention for long zoom is now focused (pun intended) on the Sigma 100-400 C lens. I am waiting for Sigma to send me one for a play, can't wait.
