The Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L II USM IS Telephoto Zoom Lens builds upon the success of the popular mark I, with a redesigned optical system for superb sharpness, a three-mode Image Stabiliser that allows shutter speeds up to 4 stops slower than normal and an improved minimum focusing distance of 3.2 feet (compared to 6.5 ft). The lens’ versatile focal range combined with its compact and lightweight build gives users the freedom to shoot handheld, which is particularly useful in confined spaces and when speed is of the essence. This solid, super-telephoto lens with rotating zoom design is ideal for a wide range of applications, including sport, portraiture, wildlife, pet and travel photography.

Who is it for?

The EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM is a compact yet powerful telephoto zoom ideal for covering wildlife, sport and action in even the most challenging environments. Featuring advanced optical engineering, a new 4-stop Image Stabilizer and excellent weather-sealing, it offers stunning image quality in a body that has been designed with ease-of-use in mind. When used on cameras featuring APS-C sized sensors, the EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM offers angles of view equivalent to 160-640mm on a full-frame camera.

Stay sharp, whatever the light

The EF 100-400mm F/4.5-5.6L IS II USM delivers sharp, high-contrast images, using Fluorite and Super Ultra-low Dispersion (Super UD) lens elements to tackle artefacts and distortion. A three-mode Image Stabiliser guards against blur from camera shake, allowing handheld shooting with shutter speeds up to 4 stops slower than normal.

Fear no flare

Shoot into the light confident that Canon’s multi-layered Air Sphere Coating (ASC) will protect against flare, ghosting and reduced contrast. ASC uses a multi-layer coating to reduce reflections including a layer of nanosised air spheres deposited on the lens surface to slow down light more gradually as it enters the lens, this prevents the internal reflections that reduce image quality.

Ergonomic handling

Different photographers work in different ways. Use the Zoom Touch Adjustment ring to set the amount of resistance felt when zooming the lens: a light touch is ideal when you’ll be working quickly in a fast-changing situation. On the other hand, you might want to stiffen or lock the zoom mechanism when you don’t want the focal length to change accidentally.

Fast focus when you want it

Enjoy fast USM autofocus that locks on accurately and in near-silence. Full-time manual focus override allows precise adjustment without taking your camera away from your eye. The Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L II USM IS Telephoto Zoom Lens focuses down to 0.98m, letting you react to subjects that come unexpectedly close.

Protected from the great outdoors

Keep shooting even in tough weather conditions. As an L-series lens, the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L II USM IS Telephoto Zoom Lens is sealed against dust and moisture, so you can keep shooting even when conditions turn bad. A fluorine coating on the lens’ front element repels dirt making the lens easy to clean.

The Key Benefits of Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L II USM IS Telephoto Zoom Lens

Compact size and weight

The Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L II USM IS Telephoto Zoom Lens is the perfect optic for photographers on the move. With compact dimensions it takes up minimal room in a kit bag and can be relied upon to perform the moment it’s fitted to a camera.

Exceptional versatility

The Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L II USM IS Telephoto Zoom Lens has been designed to exceed expectations with a focal length range of particular appeal to landscape as well as sports, action and wildlife photographers.

Instinctive user controls

The new ET-83D lens hood for the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L II USM IS Telephoto Zoom Lens features an access window, useful for adjusting filters.

Different photographers work in different ways. The Zoom Touch Adjustment ring can be used to set the amount of resistance felt when zooming the lens: a light touch is ideal when you’ll be working quickly in a fast-changing situation. On the other hand, you might want to stiffen or lock the zoom mechanism when you don’t want the focal length to change accidentally.

A tripod collar is now integrated with the barrel to provide smoother, seamless rotation while the tripod foot itself can even be removed completely.
A new, dedicated lens hood, ET-83D, allows the use of rotating polarising filters without the need to remove the hood, thanks to the inclusion of an access window.

Stunningly fast autofocus

Enjoy fast USM autofocus that locks on accurately and in near-silence. Full-time manual focus override allows precise adjustment without taking your camera away from your eye. The EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM focuses as close as 0.98m, letting you react to subjects that come unexpectedly close.

NEW Optical Image Stabilisation

The Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L II USM IS Telephoto Zoom Lens’s Image Stabiliser (IS) system has been completely redesigned and now offers up to 4-stops of compensation. It also features the three levels of stabilisation, found on Canon Mark II telephoto-zoom lenses:

  • Mode 1: The same as previous IS systems. IS detects movement in two planes
  • Mode 2: New algorithms reduce problems when panning. IS detects movement in one plane, ideal for panning
  • Mode 3: IS is only activated during exposure. Allows panning without the IS over-compensating for movement which may affecting image quality
