·Rounded 9-Blade DiaphragmOVERVIEWA long-reaching telephoto zoom characterized by a sophisticated optical design and advanced image stabilization technologies, the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens is part of the esteemed L-series developed for full-frame EOS DSLRs. One fluorite element and one Super UD element have been incorporated into the lens' constriction, and both help to reduce aberrations and distortions throughout the zoom range in order to deliver notable clarity, image sharpness, and faithful colour reproduction. An Air Sphere Coating has also been applied to lens elements in order to reduce lens flare and ghosting for more contrast-rich imagery. Benefiting the optical components of the lens, a four-stop effective Optical Image Stabilizer helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake and can be dedicated to different styles of shooting. Furthermore, a redeveloped rotation-type zoom ring pairs with an internal focusing mechanism, and an Ultrasonic Motor, to deliver quick and intuitive handling to benefit handheld shooting. Positioned as a versatile option for sports and wildlife photographers, this lens' list of attributes make it a viable telephoto zoom for a variety of shooting applications.Housed within a weather-resistant barrel, this lens also features fluorine coatings on the front and rear elements for protection against fingerprints and smudges from affecting image quality. Zoom control is complemented by a dedicated tension ring for adjusting zoom torque. Additionally, other refined design elements include a tripod collar that can be attached or detached with the lens mounted to the camera and an included lens hood that permits easy control over specialty filters with the hood in place.
·Telephoto zoom 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 lens is compatible with full-frame EOS DSLRs, as well as APS-C sized sensors where it will provide a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 160-640mm.
·One fluorite element and one Super UD (Ultra Low Dispersion) element help to correct chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range for a high degree of sharpness, clarity, and colour accuracy.
·An Air Sphere Coating (ASC) has been applied to lens elements to reduce backlit flaring and ghosting for maintained light transmission and high contrast in strong lighting conditions.
·An Optical Image Stabilizer helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed stops to better enable working in low-light conditions and with slower shutter speeds. Additionally, three dedicated image stabilization modes are available-Standard, Panning, and During Exposure Only-and can be selectively employed to suit a variety of types of shooting.
·An Ultrasonic Motor (USM), along with an internal focusing system, high-speed CPU, and optimized AF algorithms, are employed to deliver fast, precise, and near-silent autofocus performance.
·The rotation-type zoom ring offers precise adjustment between zoom positions, especially when shooting handheld, and a zoom torque adjustment ring enables easy setting of the zoom tension for personalized control.
·A weather-resistant design protects the lens from dust and moisture to enable its use in inclement conditions. Additionally, fluorine coatings have also been applied to the front and rear lens elements for further protection against fingerprints and smudging.
·Nine rounded diaphragm blades contribute to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
·A redeveloped tripod collar can be attached or detached from the lens without having to remove the lens from the camera.
·The included ET-83D lens hood incorporates a side window for easier adjustment of rotating filters with the hood in place.SPECIFICATIONSFocal Length 100 - 400mm

- Sharp and Great Zoom Lens!- February 1, 2017
What I like about it is the long range zoom aside from being a sharp lens. Although it doesn't replaces my Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS USM II. It is sharp from 100mm all the way to 400mm. But in a dim environmrnt, that is when this lens began to slow down. But the IS is a great help to minimize the blurry pictures. I find the IS very effective in all situations and it helps during low light shooting. I wish they should have made this thing with a "constant aperture." But it is an L lens, a very reliable one! Comparing to the Canon 200-400 f4, this is the way to go if you don't want the extra weight and also save a huge amount of moneyYes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Value, Great Image Quality- January 30, 2012
Used primarily for Wildlife / Sports photography, with great results on an EOS 50D. Tried experiment indoor shots of family cat sitting in window lighting, shot at 400mm, F5.6 at 1/30 second shutter speed with IS on, image was very sharp. Outdoor shots are tack sharp at all F stops that I've tried so far, all F5.6 to F11. I could not come up with a negative comment on this lens if I tried. Great Lens in every aspect. Some complain about the weight, you get very used to it quickly, about as long as it takes to see the kinds of images you are getting. Not an issue. Yes, some of the primes can be sharper, but not necessarily, you would loose a lot of versatility.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Geat Lens!- June 20, 2015
I recently sold my Canon 400mm f/5.6 L to get this lens. I do a lot of wildlife( deer and elk ) in the Oregon coast range off a mountain bike. I quickly found out the 400mm prime without IS just wasn't cutting it. I do 99.99% free hand for it was cumbersome to pack a tripod into the hills of Oregon. I recently received the 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L II and could not be happier! hand held at 400mm is no longer an issue. The IS is great! Built solid and focuses every bit as fast as the 400 prime. My throw away images have almost gone away. Its a great combo for my 70D. Oh, and the pictures are SHARP!!! Glad I made the change.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
