The Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens is perfect for sports and wildlife shooters. Its powerful focal range is combined with high quality L-Series optics and a compact design ensuring it is a valuable addition to any photography kit.
Redesigned and Improved
The Mk II features significant updates from the previous version lens including replacement of the push-pull zoom method with the more conventional rotary zoom as well as closer focusing and significantly improved image stabilisation.
Fluorite and Super UD Element Construction
Its internal construction consists of a fluorite element and a Super UD element to deliver astonishing image quality and true-to-life colour reproduction throughout the entire zoom range. The high quality optics help minimise chromatic aberrations and distortions, delivering edge-to-edge sharpness and detail-rich results.
Air Sphere Coating
Complementing the optical construction is an Air Sphere Coating which aids in minimising lens flare and ghosting while improving contrast. This results in deeper, more vivid colours and enhanced clarity.
Fluorine coatings on the front and rear lens elements further bolster optical clarity, reducing smearing and fingerprints and ensuring a convenient easy-to-clean surface.
3-Mode Optical Image Stabiliser
The Built-in Optical Image Stabiliser minimises blurry photos caused by camera shake. Providing a 4-stop advantage, it ensures sharper photos when shooting handheld and equips you with a greater range of exposure options when shooting in low-light environments. 3 different stabiliser modes, standard, panning and during exposure mode are available to satisfy most shooting scenarios, ensuring the sharpest possible results across a broad range of situations.
Zoom Torque Customisation
A zoom torque adjustment ring allows you to customise the zoom tension to your personal preference or shooting requirements. It enables fine-tuning of the required torque needed to zoom in and out, helping achieve the perfect balance between responsiveness and control.
Ultrasonic Motor for Fast Autofocus
Utilising an Ultrasonic Motor (USM), the lens delivers fast, quiet, consistently accurate autofocus. Ideal for action and wildlife shooters, the USM is combined with a high-speed CPU and optimised autofocus algorithms to assist in tracking moving subjects and focusing on objects as close as 98cm.
Filter Adjustable Lens Hood
The lens also includes a unique lens hood that features a side window that allows you to adjust specialty filters such as circular polariser and variable ND filters without having to remove the hood.
Tough Weather Sealed Construction
With its rugged weather sealed construction, the Canon 100-400mm EF f/4.5-5.6L IS USM II lens is capable of satisfying the most extreme conditions and shooting demands any professional or serious enthusiast can throw at it.
