Versatile super-telephoto performance
The EF 100-400MM F/4.5-5.6L IS II USM is ideal for photographers who are travelling light and want to take just one telephoto lens with them. A great choice for sports and wildlife photography – the 100-400mm zoom range puts you right next to distant subjects, and lets you react quickly in a fast-changing situation. When used on cameras featuring APS-C sized sensors, the EF 100-400MM F/4.5-5.6L IS II USM offers angles of view equivalent to a 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 Stabilizer 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 nanosized 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 EF 100-400MM F/4.5-5.6L IS II USM 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 EF 100-400MM F/4.5-5.6L IS II USM 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.

 

Press Announcement:

London, UK, 11 November 2014 – Canon today introduces the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM, a new powerful, high-performance zoom lens in Canon’s acclaimed L-series, ideal for passionate sports and wildlife photographers. A successor to the hugely popular EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM, the new model features a range of upgrades to improve image quality and enhance usability, setting a new benchmark for performance from a compact super telephoto zoom lens.

 

Exceptional optical performance and flexibility 

The EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM gives you the flexibility and freedom to capture subjects, both near and far, using the incredibly versatile 100-400mm focal range. The lens’s completely redesigned optical structure now features an improved 4-stop optical Image Stabilizer to reduce the effects of visible camera shake on long-distance shots, with three IS modes tailored to most typical shooting conditions, while Canon’s pioneering ring-type Ultrasonic Motor provides fast, silent autofocusing.

Built to deliver the highest quality results with every press of the shutter, the lens’s 21 element structure uses a combination of Fluorite and Super Ultra-low Dispersion (Super UD) lens elements, and in a first for the EF lens range, Canon’s new Air Sphere Coating (ASC). The new advanced anti-reflection coating is constructed of tiny nano particles of trapped air, which create an ultra-low refractive index layer, to help reduce visible ghosting and flare.

Redesigned zoom and advanced pro operation 

Enhanced following extensive feedback from Canon photographers, the lens features a number of design upgrades, including the traditional twist action zoom mechanism in line with other EF zoom lenses. The new mechanism allows you to adjust zoom torque via a dedicated Zoom Touch Adjustment ring, which provides a smooth action for fast zooming, as well as the ability to lock the zoom at your desired focal length, preventing image composition from changing by accidentally touching the zoom. 

Incredibly compact and lightweight for an advanced telephoto lens, the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM has been optimised to provide photographers with everything they need at their fingertips. The lens’s tripod collar is now built-in to provide smoother, seamless rotation, and when needed, the tripod foot can be removed, reducing the overall lens body size. A new dedicated lens hood, ET-83D, allows you to rotate polarising filters, without removing the hood, thanks to the inclusion of a new access window. 

Designed to be used anywhere, even in the harshest conditions, the lens continues the renowned L-series lens DNA and rugged construction. You can rely on the lens to perform in vastly challenging environments, with a dust and water-resistant construction providing the durability users demand. For added endurance, the lens features fluorine coatings on the front and rear lens elements, reducing the possibility of dirt sticking to the lens surface and affecting image quality. 

EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM key benefits:

  • Versatile, portable super-telephoto zoom lens
  • Superb image quality right across the frame
  • Prevent camera shake with a 4-stop Image Stabilizer 
  • Customise the feel of the zoom control for different situations 
  • Fast, near-silent focusing
  • Shoot confidently in tough weather conditions
