This Canon super-telephoto prime lens – designed for sports and wildlife photography – is paramount for any professional telephoto photographer. With its fixed f2.8 aperture and L-Series quality optics, this lens has been crafted for serious professional usage for any photographer needing primal shots from quite a distance away. For sports photography, the 3 Image Stabilisation modes allow you to maintain clarity whilst panning, so you’re ready for any kind of motion. For wildlife photography, the USM built into the lens allows for quick auto-focusing whilst still remaining essentially silent. For portraits, the bokeh created behind a subject is amazingly smooth, resulting in heavy emphasis on the subject – predominantly beneficial for photojournalists and fashion photographers.
- L-Series quality optics.
- Fast auto-focus system, whilst still remaining whisper-quiet.
- 3 IS Modes, designed to capture different variants of motion.
- Rugged and durable design.
- Designed for professional usage.
A super-telephoto lens with a lot to offer, this Canon EF 400mm f2.8L IS USM lens has become the chosen weapon for many professional Sports photographers. The long fixed focal length of 400mm will award you with courtside seats, when your feet can't get you that close to the action, leaving you poised to fill your frame with the hero of the moment and crop the unnecessary surroundings.
The large f2.8 aperture of this 400mm prime lens captures plenty of light, meaning you can shoot at fast shutter speeds. This aids in stopping moving subjects still in their tracks, as well as enabling a high-level of low light shooting. For wildlife photographers, this is the lens you want mounted to the front of your camera, when you happen across a family of Kangaroos hopping past at dusk.
For the purposes of action and low-light shooting that we have already mentioned, this lens also benefits from a built-in optical Image Stabiliser, with three different dedicated modes. These modes help you to equip yourself to any shooting condition, whether you are stationary or panning and still reap the rewards that a stabiliser provides. An Ultrasonic focus motor is in board to provide fast and quiet autofocus that is also incredibly accurate. You can select your focus point and fire on that passing wildlife, before you turn their heads or stir them with any untimely focus sounds.Other key features
