Description

Canon EF 500mm f/4.0 L IS USM MKII Lens

The Canon EF 500mm f/4.0 L IS USM MKII Lens is a high-magnification, Super-telephoto Prime lens featuring integrated Image Stabilizer technology.

The Canon EF 500mm f/4.0 L IS USM MKII Lens is a Super-telephoto Prime lens designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however, it can also be used with APS-C models where it provides an 800mm equivalent focal length.

Features

  • Bright f/4.0 maximum aperture affords control over the depth of field for working with selective focus techniques.
  • Two fluorite elements are used to greatly reduce color fringing, and chromatic aberrations in order to achieve greater clarity, and color accuracy.
  • Four aspherical elements help to limit spherical aberrations, and distortion for greater sharpness, and accurate rendering.
  • A Sub Wavelength Coating has been applied to individual elements to control lens flare, and ghosting for greater contrast, and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
  • An Optical Image Stabilizer helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed stops to better enable working in low-light conditions, and with slower shutter speeds. Three distinct IS modes are available: standard single-shot mode, a panning-optimized mode, and a mode that only activates the Image Stabilizer during the exposure.
  • A ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), along with optimized focusing algorithms and a high-speed CPU, is employed to deliver fast, precise, and quiet autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override.
  • Focus Preset function is available to quickly recall a programmed focusing position.
  • Focus Limiter switch lets you constrain the focusing to three different ranges to suit different applications: 12.1-32.8′, 12.1′-infinity, or 32.8′-infinity.
  • A Power Focus setting is available, and allows you to electronically and smoothly adjust your focus position to suit video recording. This setting utilizes a dedicated ring in front of the main focusing ring and allows you to use one of two different focusing speeds.
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
  • As a member of the esteemed L-series, this lens is sealed against dust and moisture for working in inclement environmental conditions.
  • Fluorine-coating on exposed elements affords protection to the optical system, resists smudging and fingerprints, and is easier to clean.
  • Removable rotating tripod collar is included and benefits working with the lens atop a tripod or monopod.
  • Compatible with optional EF 1.4X, and EF 2X teleconverters.
