EF 600mm f/4L IS II USM
The tremendous telephoto power of the 600mm f/4 lens historically comes at the price of significant weight and size. But remarkably, Canon's latest Version II 600mm is virtually the same weight as the previous 500mm f/4L lens – more than 3 pounds (1440g) lighter than the previous 600mm, transforming the character of this lens. It opens up super-tele "reach" to shooters who want power along with portability and easier monopod operation. It's not just a sports lens: for long-distance surveillance, wildlife and even HD video users, it offers terrific optical quality, along with new-found handling ease.
- Especially appealing as a step-up for current or past owners of the 500mm f/4L lens, with its added telephoto power and almost no weight penalty
- Superb Image Stabilization now offers up to 4 stops of shake correction; new "Mode 3" provides instant IS start-up when shutter button is fully depressed
- For HD video, new Power Focus offers super-smooth focus transitions, with two-speed control, at touch of a ring
- Compatible with all Canon EF 1.4x and 2x tele extenders – full AF with any Canon EOS body when used with 1.4x; with EF 2x, AF at center point (only) with EOS bodies with 45-point AF system, or (after firmware upgrade) with 61-point AF system
