next PZ Lens Test Report - Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 USM L IS
My favourite lens in terms of usage, probably 50% of all my shots ever are with this lens. Interesting how consistent the performance is with aperture. I thought there was a slight improvement from stopping down slightly, but I guess that could also be attributable to the increased depth of field giving that impression.

I really couldn't say mine ever gave me a dust problem, at least no more than any other extending lens.

Still, there's room for a mk2 I think, if more physically than optically. I wonder how many sales have been lost from the push-pull as opposed to the more common twist zoom. I actually prefer push-pull here as it is faster and more accurate to me. An updated IS system and weather sealing would be a given I think. Maybe an upgraded AF motor system (e.g. memory preset) might be useful, and I don't think anyone would ever complain of even more optical performance...
