Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM Telephoto Lens

Never knowingly undersold

Product information

The Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM lens provides excellent handling and consistently high image quality. Its versatile zoom range makes it a popular choice with professional sports and nature photographers.

Key benefits:

  • The fluorite and Super UD-glass elements largely eliminate distortions and aberrations. A floating optical system also ensures good picture quality at all focal lengths.
  • This lens features a three stop image stabiliser, making this an ideal lens for handheld work. Shutter speeds up to three stops slower than normal can be used with no perceptible increase in image blur. Major movement in a particular direction is automatically interpreted as panning and IS is turned off in this plane.
  • A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting. Furthermore, full-time manual override is also available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.
  • High contrast, low distortion and good corner-to-corner resolution is evident throughout the zoom range. A virtually circular aperture diaphragm, which is controlled electromagnetically, gives out-of-focus regions a softer, more even feel, and lets in-focus subjects stand out against a blurred background.
  • Includes a cylindrical bayonet hood and soft case.
  • For use with EF mount Canon DSLR cameras
