That's a photo I borrowed from Badger Graphics. And I've used one before. I have a G-Claron 305mm, and it's a wonderful lens, but the first time I put the 400mm on my camera, and looked at the glass, it was immediately obvious that I had to get this lens.

What I saw in the scene was what I saw on the glass - no cropping required.
