The new Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmar 100-400mm f/4-6.3 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. lens is the longest Micro Four Thirds lens you can find. It offers an impressive 200-800mm equivalent zoom range and has some neat tricks up its sleeve on the body’s build. [Read more…]
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.
