Over 28% lighter than its predecessor and now the lightest lens in its class, the EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM features Fluorite optics that deliver sharper images with less chromatic aberration, a completely redesigned Image Stabilization system that offers up to four extra stops of performance, a newly-developed Fluorine coating that keeps soiling, smears and fingerprints to a minimum, plus new construction in line with only the best that Canon has to offer. With a third Image Stabilization mode (Mode 3) that activates IS only when the shutter button is fully pressed, and giving the equivalent effect of a shutter speed four stops faster, the EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM allows for easy panning and is ideally positioned for professional action photography. With a new security slot for wire-type security locks, buttons and switches are redesigned for intuitive, deliberate operation, and dust and water sealing keeps the lens functioning flawlessly in even the most challenging environments.


    The stellar combination of superlative optics, astonishing performance and brilliant construction, the EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM super telephoto is the professional's choice for a long lens, and perfect for nature and wildlife photography.

Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive I rented this lens for 1 week this summer when I had some cash in my pocket and I was looking for a hand-holdable lens to mount on my 7d that offered more reach than my 70-200 for nature/birding. After quite a bit of internet research I was torn between the 300 2.8 II and the 400 2.8 II. I'll start by saying that this lens is nothing short of spectacular. If you can afford it and carry it for your intended/expected durations then I wouldn't hold back on it! It is really a joy to shoot with this lens. I'm not a great photographer (more money than skill), but the images that I captured with this lens after spending a few days of quality time with it were flattering to my abilities. I used the lens freehand for some outings and with a monopod for others. I sometimes used my 1.4x extender and noticed no appreciable tradeoff with AF or IQ performance. At the end of one week, however, my shoulders, back, and arms were paying the price for carrying this lens around. For once-a-week outings I'd probably be fine with this lens, but I was really hoping for something that I could haul around on my annual Adirondacks vacations. Those trips are 10 days long with ~5-8 mile hikes on a few days - sometimes climbing ~4000 ft. hills - and I knew from my short experience with this lens that I wouldn't be able to take it with me through those conditions. I almost wish that I could ignore my annual hiking trips when considering this lens, since I know that it would be more than manageable for one or two days at a time, but I ended up getting the 300 2.8 II and I'm really happy with my decision. Maybe someday I'll once again have enough cash in my pocket to get the 400 2.8. I'll buy it in an instant knowing that the 300 2.8 II is in my bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens! I got this lens to replace my 400 2.8L VI. I really like this lens but I have to say I cannot see a real big improvement over the IQ, between VI and VII. If I had to do it all over again, I may have kept my VI. I am not unhappy at all with the upgrade, I just may have been expecting to much. Still a great lens and would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BEST CANON LENS EVER MADE It is an excellent lens! I use it with my Canon EOS-1D X camera. Actually I have some Canon L series lenses such as Canon EF 200mm f/2L IS USM, Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8l IS II USM, Canon EF 85mm f/1.2l II USM, Canon EF 14mm f/2.8l II USM, Canon EF 100mm f/2.8l IS USM, Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8l II IS USM and of course my new Canon EF 400mm f/2.8l II USM. I use my another lovely camera Canon EOS-5D Mark III. I like this new lens very much! The picture quality is excellent!
