While it may offer super image quality, super build quality and super features, the EF 400mm f/5.6L USM is certainly not super in size. Relatively small and lightweight within its class – yet still solidly robust – this super telephoto lens excels in a number of photographic fields. Its outstanding optical performance makes it the ideal sports photography lens, while its lightweight stature makes it perfectly suited to wildlife photography and bird photography – especially when capturing birds in flight. Image sharpness is exceptional, assisted in part by its ring-type USM, which delivers fast, accurate and quiet autofocus. Using this lens, chromatic aberration, vignetting and distortion are all very well controlled, while colour, contrast and saturation are beautifully reproduced. Bokeh is equally impressive, as the eight-blade aperture allows you to create a striking background blur to bring enhanced focus to your subject.
The L-series is Canon's flagship professional lens range, representing the best in precision-designed EF optics. L-series lenses combine superior performance with superlative handling, and are resistant to dust and moisture.
Super spectra coating
Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate colour balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and ghosting – a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera's sensor.
Ultimate image quality
The EF 400mm f/5.6L USM features a UD (ultra dispersive) element and one super-UD element, whose characteristics are similar to fluorite. This combination results in sharp pictures from corner-to corner. The lens also has a built-in hood and a detachable tripod mount.
A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting.
Bokeh is equally impressive, as the eight-blade aperture allows you to create a striking background blur to bring enhanced focus to your subject.
