A premium telephoto lens on a budget

A telephoto prime lens from Canon that is capable of exceptional results without sending you into debt, is the Canon EF 400mm f5.6 L USM lens. With an optical construction deserving of the L series name this lens contains one UD and one Super ED glass element, resulting in edge to edge sharpness and minimal aberrations. To further protect from detriments such as flare, ghosting and camera shake this lens has both a built-in lens hood and detachable tripod collar, making this lens a versatile and reliable performer, well-suited to Sports and wildlife.

For focusing on the moving subjects that you are no doubt drawn to if you are considering this lens, there is Canon's fantastic Ultrasonic motor, which is all things you want from a focus motor - accurate, fast and virtually silent. You may draw the attention of other envious photography enthusiasts, but no one will be looking due to unnerving focus sounds. To keep focus speeds even faster there is a focus range limiter, which allows you to choose between one of two possible ranges that your lens can focus on, which saves the lens from hunting unnecessarily to find the focus point.
