Canon has launched a brand new super-telephoto lens, the EF400mm f/4 DO IS II USM – which features Canon’s latest generation Diffractive Optic (DO) technology to offer superb optical performance in the super-telephoto class.
The EF400mm f/4 DO IS II USM will appeal to photographers looking for a lightweight super-telephoto that doesn’t take up much room in a kitbag. Wildlife, news or travel photographers who may need to walk long distances will find this lens a particularly welcome addition, with all the hallmarks of Canon image quality in a smaller, lighter design.
