B&H has the new Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens in stock again. It has been in high demand since its release, so if you’ve been waiting for one, you can get it now. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
Canon has officially unveiled its EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L II USM lens, which replaces the 16-year-old 100-400mm L lens predecessor. The new 100-400mm lens most obvious change is a rotating zoom ring design instead of the push-pull design from the older model. Additionally, the new lens offers improvements in image quality with a new optical formula and Image Stabilization performance up to four stops.
The lens has three Image Stabilization modes – standard, panning, and during exposure only. It also sports a weather sealed design and a magnesium housing. The new optical formula features one Fluorite element and one Super UD element, which helps suppress chromatic aberration throughout the zoom range.
The lens ships with a dedicated tripod foot and lens hood. It retails for $2199 and should be available in December 2014. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
