The Canon 400mm f/2.8 L II USM is the 2nd version of the 400/2.8L super-telephoto prime lens produced from 1996-1999 for professionals using the Canon EOS line of cameras. The second version improved sharpness and reduced chromatic aberrations by the addition of a fluorite element. This lens is ideal for wildlife and sports photography.
At 348 mm (13.7 inches) in length and 5.91kg (13.03lbs), the superb metal constructed Canon 400mm f/2.8 L II USM is a large lens that will produce the best results when using a sturdy tripod or monopod. With outstanding sharpness and clarity, low distortion, minimal vignetting, and reduced chromatic aberration, this lens is one of the best values on the market.
The ultrasonic autofocus motor (USM) delivers superior autofocus and ensures fast, accurate, and nearly silent performance which is invaluable when out in the field. Change to manual focus with a flick of an on-lens switch for total focus control. To reduce autofocus hunting, the Canon 400mm also enables a focus range limiter of 4m-9.5m, 9.5m-∞ or the full range of 4m-∞. Additionally, use the focus preset to allow for quick focusing of a predetermined distance; ideally used in sports and wildlife photography.
