Yes I would

Dear Canon,

Yes, this image was taken hand-held with a shutter speed of only 1/80th of a second. And yes, I was using the amazing Canon 100mm f2.8L IS Macro lens, with my trained Grasshopper balancing on one of the fingers of my left hand, and the camera clutched in my right hand. In this most wobby of shaky situations, I felt this would be a proper test of your new hybrid image stabliser, and I am pleased to report that it has done rather well. And yes, if there are any samples of the new Canon 600mm f4.0L IS II lens that need checking out, I would be happy to give it a proper run through its paces for you, on the understanding, naturally, that I get to keep the lens afterwards.

Kind Regards,



  1. The 600mm lens looks a snip at £11,299. I'll get my order in now!

  2. gotta be worth a try! That grasshopper looks a bit stuffed to me tho!
