Professional image quality

Achieve exceptional sharpness and contrastCONTRASTThe difference between areas of different brightness levels in a photograph: A high-contrast image has a greater difference between light and dark areas, whereas a low-contrast image has a narrow range of tones. Contrast is used to direct a viewer’s attention to a photographer’s subject either with colour contrast (bold versus duller colours) or tonal contrast (bright versus darker tones). 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 flareFLAREOccurs when a point light source such as the sun or an artificial light (that is brighter than the rest of the scene), hits the front element of a lens resulting in a lack of contrast, haze, or unwanted semi-transparent objects being present in the image. You can avoid lens flare with a lenshood or filters, however, the effect is also useful for bringing artistic elements into an image, such as sun rays peaking out from behind a rock formation. and ghosting for increased contrast and colour neutrality when working in backlit conditions.


Features

  • EF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • ApertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur. Range: f/2.8 to f/32

Shoot handheld like never-before-possible with a 400mm

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 exposureEXPOSUREExposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Achieving the correct exposure is similar to collecting rain in a bucket, up to an optimum level. The rate of rainfall is out of your control (light), yet you can control these three factors: the bucket’s width (lens aperture), the duration you leave it in the rain (shutter speed), and how effective your bucket is in collecting rain (ISO). These three elements work together to control the amount of light per unit area, preventing underexposure (too dark) or overexposure (too bright), giving you a natural looking image..


Focus quickly & accurately

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.


Shoot with smart controls

Fingertip controls let you start/lock AF or recall a pre-programmed focusing distance. All without taking the camera from your eye.


Built to travel. Built to last.

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.
