Updated: Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM Lens ISO 12233 Chart Sample Crops.

Prior to this point, I've owned two copies of the Canon 400mm f/5.6L Lens - Both performed similarly, but not spectacularly for a prime telephoto L lens. Site visitors were indicating that my results should be better, so I bit the bullet and purchased a third copy. I think you will find these results to be more respectable - and more representative of this lens in general.
