The Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens focuses internally so will only extend in length when zooming.
Yes, the Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens is compatible with both Canon EF Extender 1.4x III and Canon EF Extender 2x III. However, depending on which camera model you have, autofocus may be limited or unavailable when this lens is used with a teleconverter.
While the Canon 100-400mm lens is weather sealed, we recommend keeping a small microfibre towel or cloth in your camera bag in case you encounter an unexpected downpour. A cleaning kit is also handy for keeping your lens dust-free and in good condition.
Protecting the front element of your lens is important whether you’re cleaning it or exposing it to the outdoor elements. A protector filter will keep your lens safe and its imaging performance maintained. However, it’s best not to stack filters as this can compromise the quality of your images. If you’re wanting to use a polarising or neutral density filter, we would suggest removing the protector filter first.
The improved image stabilisation in the Canon 100-400mm IS II USM lens means you can get crisp shots even while shooting handheld. However, if you’re going to be shooting for long periods of time a monopod can be a real life (and arm) saver!
