Canon EF 400mm f2.8L IS III USM Lens

The Canon EF 400mm f/2.8 L IS III USM lens has always been known as the go-to sports photographers lens and this new mark III version has some big improvements. You now have a lighter, more compact and sharper image performance thanks to a new design and a 5-stop stabilisation system.

Combining ultra-high performance with a portable design, this is the world’s lightest 400mm f/2.8 lens. It’s superb for action and wildlife, and for photographers who travel and work on location.

Superb quality from an advanced optical design

Ultra-high image quality, with high sharpness right across the frame. Fluorite lens elements virtually eliminate chromatic aberration and boost resolution and contrast. Flare and ghosting are virtually eliminated by our Subwavelength structure coating (SWC). Create superb out-of-focus backgrounds, with a fast f/2.8 aperture and nine-bladed diaphragm

The lightest 400mm f/2.8 lens in the world

An advanced optical formula reduces weight, making this the world’s lightest 400mm f/2.8 design with an ultra-portable design that is ideal for location work. As an L-series lens, the Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III is built to withstand the rigours of professional use. Built-in protective weather sealing guards against dust and moisture, while fluorine coatings help clean. Thermal insulation coating maintains image quality when shooting in hot sunny conditions

Keep subjects in sharp focus as they move around the frame

Focusing is fast and quiet, thanks to a ring-type USM autofocus motor and high-speed CPU allowing you to create pull-focus effects when shooting video, using power focus controls and focus presets. Make instant adjustments using full-time manual focus control which is electronically controlled, for customizable focusing speed and extreme precision

Stay sharp when shooting handheld or in low light

Preserve sharpness when shooting handheld or in low light, thanks to a five-stop Image Stabilizer alongside the lens’s lightweight design allows it to be used handheld for long periods of time

React quickly, using customisable controls

Lock, stop and recall focus using customisable AF control buttons give you the freedom to shoot instinctively, with controls that fall naturally under your fingers with the camera at your eye
