Lens Description

The Canon EF 400mm F/2.8L IS USM is a super telephoto prime designed for cameras with a Full-Frame sensor. This bright prime has a 400mm focal-length. An optical Image Stabilization System built into this lens compensates for camera shake. The body of this lens is weatherproof against adverse weather such as rain and snow. It has sealing to prevent entry of water and dust.

This prime can focus down to 300cm from the imaging plane which gives it a maximum magnification of 0.15X. The lens offers a Quick-Shift AF system which lets the user simply rotate the focus-ring to focus manually. A Super-Sonic motor inside the lens delivers very fast and relatively quiet AF.

This lens is only available for Canon EF. Follow this link for all current compatible digital cameras: Canon EF mount cameras with Full-Frame or smaller sensors.
