Telephoto Zoom: used Canon 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS USM
L-series super telephoto zoom lens equipped with an Image Stabilizer, that is the used Canon 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS USM. The fluorite and Super UD-glass elements largely eliminate secondary spectrum. The floating system also ensures high picture quality at all focal lengths. The Image Stabilizer has two modes and it is compatible with Extenders 1.4x II and 2x II.

The used Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM Lens has an excellent focal length range that includes the longest focal length found in a Canon zoom lens – 400mm. This long focal length and focal length range combine with very good image and build quality to make the 100-400 L one of the most popular serious wildlife and sports lenses Canon sells.
To say that the used Canon 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS USM Lens is a member of the Canon L Series quickly says a lot about this lens. Weighing 3 lb (1,380g) and measuring 3.6″ x 7.4″ (92.0 x 189.0) (DxL retracted), the 100-400 is solidly built and feels like it.
The push/pull zoom mechanism is possibly the most noticeable physical feature of this lens. While it works smoothly, it took me some time to get used to it. There is a ring on the back of the manual focus ring that adjusts the tension on the zoom part of the lens. That is a nice feature, but I find myself constantly adjusting the tension to get it just right for the moment. The ring also gets in the way of the manual focus ring – when making a manual focus adjustment, I often inadvertently change the zoom friction ring as well. Set the zoom friction too light and the lens extends by itself when pointed downward – fast and hard if set really loose. Set the friction too tight and zooming becomes difficult. So, it works as it is supposed to. A big benefit to the push/pull design is that your supporting hand remains centered under the lens at all times. Some photographers prefer the push/pull design.
