Canon EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 L IS II USM

A compact, high-performance 100-400mm zoom lens that’s ideal for those shooting sports, action and wildlife photography.


This Canon 100-400 II is an extraordinary lens. Images are astounding, but you won’t fully appreciate the feel, instant autofocus and smooth zooming until you get your own.


I’m starting to see the appeal in mirrorless cameras, but am resisting the urge to consider spending that much money. The Canon 5D Mark IV can hold me over for now. It’s an amazing camera.

With my 5D being a full-frame Canon DSLR, my best bet for a super telephoto lens seems to be one to rule them all: The Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS II USM.

I’ve shot with lots of Canon lenses, including the 300mm f/4L USM and 500mm FD f/4.5 L. Purely from the photos I’ve seen, and the reviews I’ve read, the 100-400mm II will make at least three of my other lenses obsolete. I can’t wait to try one out.
