Built to deliver sharp high contrast images at high magnification, the Canon EF 500mm f/4 L-Series super telephoto lens empowers Canon photographers to capture professional sports action images and stunning wildlife close-ups that meet the most stringent of photo agency standards. A wide f/4 aperture ensures excellent light grasp resulting in vibrant images that are full of depth and detail. Fluorite and UD lens elements work in tandem to minimise aberrations and distortions, further enhancing image quality, while intelligent in-lens four-stop image stabilisation protects against motion blur at slow shutter speeds.

 

Professional L-Series Lens Design

Part of Canon’s professional L-Series lens line up, the Canon EF 500mm f/4 IS II USM telephoto lens is constructed from 16 lens elements in 12 groups. The glass features Canon’s patented SWC lens coating to reduce glare and eliminate ghosting. On the front and rear lens elements there is an additional fluorine coating to safeguard against scratch damage, while the optical assembly itself is encased by a dust-resistant and moisture-resistant body that features magnesium alloy and titanium for added strength and better portability.

 

Four-Stop Image Stabilisation

Enhancing image capture performance on the Canon EF 500mm f/4 super telephoto lens is intelligent four-stop image stabilisation (IS) technology. Ultra-steady image captures at shutter speeds that are up to four times slower than normal are within easy reach. It makes capturing sharp shots in poor light very achievable, as well as offering excellent compensation for camera movement when shooting handheld images in brighter conditions. Being lens-based, image stabilisation is visible in the viewfinder too when composing shots. Additionally, automatic panning detection is provided for a consistently steady performance when tracking subjects.

 

Near-Silent Ultrasonic Focusing

In AF mode the Canon EF 500mm f/4 super telephoto lens delivers exceptionally quick and accurate subject focus. Ultrasonic motors acquire autofocus swiftly in near silence, while excellent holding torque ensures that the lens stops dead at the focus point without overshoot. A full-time manual focus override is available, enabling intuitive fine-tuning of focus with your fingers without exiting AF mode.
