    The Canon 100-400mm L IS lens gets mixed reviews. Mostly the reviews
    are very positive, but there are some bad ones too. Some sources have
    tested more than one and the results show that there is quite a bit of
    variability.

    I want to buy one, but natch I want one of the good ones. So... how
    the heck do I pick a good one?

    There is no way to buy a guaranteed good copy. So, be sure to buy from a
    retailer who is liberal with returns.

    BTW, the lens-to-lens variation is not as large as some believe. Chances
    are way better than even that you will get a good one the first time (again,
    choose a reputable dealer to avoid getting a returned copy).
