EF 400mm f/5.6L USM
Super telephoto lens, small in size.

Compact lightweight super-telephoto.

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.

L-series quality

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.

Supa 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.

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.
