Fantastic photos in any weather

Extensive weather-sealing means you can use this lens even in adverse conditions. Its 400mm focal length and f/2.8 maximum aperture lets you play up your subject by compressing and blurring the background. Nine circular aperture blades contribute to dreamy defocused background effects.

Stay focused on important details

Canon's quiet Ultrasonic Motor (USM) ensures fast, precise focus — great for shooting video. A customizable electronic manual focusing ring with three sensitivity levels helps you get the shots you're after. You'll be able to select how quickly and precisely you want to adjust focus — really helpful when you need a slower speed to switch between subjects or a faster speed to zero in on moving subjects.

Keep it steady

This lens offers three flavors of image stabilization for sharper images at slower shutter speeds — perfect for low-light situations when you don't have a tripod handy. There's a panning mode, and a specialized mode for erratically moving subjects. A Stabilizer Mode switch on the lens barrel makes it easy to dial in the right kind of stabilization for nearly any subject or scene.
