Achieve exceptional sharpness and contrast right across the frame. Superb for sports, wildlife and news photographers who demand the very best performance. This lens is characterised by Canon's esteemed L-series technology, quality and performance and delivers ultra-sharp images with exceptional contrast in nearly every situation.
Both Super UD and fluorite elements are used in the optical design to help reduce colour fringing and chromatic aberrations for high clarity and colour accuracy. Super Spectra and Air Sphere Coatings have been applied to individual elements to suppress flare and ghosting for increased contrast and colour neutrality when working in backlit conditions.
The EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III is the lightest 400mm f/2.8 lens in the world, and features an advanced five-stop Image Stabiliser, making hand-held shooting a reality. Three stabilisation modes suit various shooting applications and include standard single-shot mode, a panning-optimised mode, and a mode that only activates the Image Stabiliser during the exposure.
Subjects come into critical focus with exceptional speed and precision, even in low light. Fast moving objects are kept sharp by employing a ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), along with optimized focusing algorithms and a high-speed CPU. Extremely quiet autofocus operation makes the Canon EF 400mm III the perfect discreet companion in the bush when capturing wildlife.
Fingertip controls let you start/lock AF or recall a pre-programmed focusing distance. All without taking the camera from your eye.
As an L-series lens, the EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III is built to exacting standards. It’s sealed against dust and moisture and can withstand the rigours of professional use in the bush or on the sports field.
