Canon EF 400mm f/5.6 L USM Lens

 

Canon classifies the Canon EF 400mm f/5.6 L USM Lens as a "Super Telephoto" lens.It is super in image and build quality, but is not super in size.

Canon EF 400mm f/4 DO IS USM Lens

 

The Canon EF 400mm f/4 DO IS USM Lens is Canon's first DO (Diffractive Optics) lens - yielding 400mm f/4 IS performance in a relatively small and light handholdable package.

Canon EF 400mm f/2.8 L IS USM Lens

 

The Canon EF 400mm f/2.8 L IS USM Lens is the ultimate Canon professional field/track sports lens

Also like most of Canon's super telephoto lenses, the Canon EF 400mm f/2.8 L IS USM Lens utilizes 52mm drop-in filters. Included is a drop-in gel filter holder with a glass filter installed. This glass filter is also a nice way to catch dust before it...

Canon 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto

 

Out of all the telephoto focal lengths, the 400mm is my favorite, so I looked forward to Canon's updated 400mm f/2.8L. At about $11,499 list price (slightly less on searched street prices) it's for those who absolutely need a fast, fixed focal length...

Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM [REVIEW]

 

As I normally shoot travel and landscape, with occasional product shots and weddings, it's not often I play with the big guns. You know, 400, 500 and 600mm lenses.

Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM review

 

Canon by name and big gun by nature, it's a super-telephoto beast

4-stop image stabiliser is excellent ; Super-fast autofocus ; Stunning image quality

Big ; Heavy ; Fiendishly expensive to buy

Even with its disadvantages, the Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM would be a great super-telephoto lens to hire for special occasions.

Canon EF 400mm f/2.8 L IS USM

 

This professional offering from Canon in the fast super telephoto range, famous along the touchlines in its creamy grey ‘white' livery is no lightweight contender in more ways than one. We take a look at how it performs.

Excellent optical performance; Good focus pre-set and Image stabilisation; Very solid build quality

IS modes and the switch to change them

REVIEW: Canon EF 400mm f/2.8 L IS USM

 

This professional offering from Canon in the fast super telephoto range, famous along the touchlines in its creamy grey ‘white' livery is no lightweight contender in more ways than one. We take a look at how it performs.

Excellent optical performance; Good focus pre-set and Image stabilisation; Very solid build quality

Weight; Price; IS modes and the switch to change them

If you have a professional need for a beast of this nature, or a bank balance and a back that can stand the hammering, you will not be disappointed. At f/2.8, it is a fast lens for its length and works ideally indoors under lights at such events as...

CANON SHOWS WHY YOU CAN\'T BEAT AN

 

This lens became my favorite from the moment I opened the box. The construction is top notch true to Canon\'s pedigree. The photos captured from this lens are as sharp as a razor. Many people complain about the weight and price of this monster but you...
