CanonCanon EF 500mm F/4L IS II USM lens : Canon launches a new super-telephoto lens for its leading EOS Digital SLR (DSLR) range - the Canon EF 500mm F/4L IS II USM. Designed to meet the needs of the most demanding sports and wildlife photographers, the new Canon lens offers breakthrough performance, delivering consistently high-quality images and incredible mobility. Launching into Canon’s professional L-series, the new lens replaces the widely-respected EF 500mm F/4L IS USM, and is designed to achieve unparalleled levels of image quality. The launch of the Canon EF 500mm II lens follows a development announcement in August 2010, and the display of prototypes at Photokina 2010 in Cologne, Germany.

The Canon EF 500mm F/4L IS II USM lens includes the highest-quality optics and the latest Canon Image Stabilizer (IS) technology, while magnesium alloy constructions with titanium components make each lens significantly lighter and even more durable. The Canon EF 500mm F/4L IS II USM benefits from an impressive reduction of 17% (680g) in weight compared to its predecessor.

Canon EF 500mm II USM lens optics
The new Canon EF 500mm F/4L IS II USM lens features completely redesigned optics, with 16 elements in 12 groups. Canon has over 40 years of experience in the manufacturing of fluorite lens elements, and has utilised two high performance fluorite elements - delivering high resolution, high contrast shots rich in detail across the frame. The lens’ optical elements feature Canon’s Super Spectra Coatings and a SubWavelength Structure Coating (SWC), optimised to effectively reduce ghosting and flare. A water-repellent fluorine coating is also used on the surface of the front and rear elements, repelling dust and dirt for clearer shots, and keeping the front element free of marks by ensuring water droplets run off the lens quickly.

The Canon EF 500mm II USM lens features Canon’s latest Image Stabilizer system, offering outstanding image quality during handheld shooting and allowing users to shoot at speeds up to four times slower than normally required. IS Mode 2 features new algorithms to improve performance when panning, and the new IS Mode 3 is also included, assisting users when switching between subjects by activating the IS unit only during exposure. The Canon EF 500mm F/4L IS II USM offers a constant f/4 aperture, allowing photographers to achieve excellent image quality in low light and capture clear, sharp shots of fast-moving subjects. The wide aperture also allows users to creatively isolate their subjects from the background, with a nine-blade circular iris creating beautiful background blur that instantly adds atmosphere to an image.

Canon EF 500mm F/4L IS II USM lens - Auto Focus
Rapid, quiet Auto Focus (AF) is provided by a ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM). Photographers can also utilise full-time manual focusing functionality, which enables the fine-tuning of focus even when the AF system is activated, providing even greater control over image capture. Power Focus mode also assists users during video shooting, allowing the photographer to smoothly adjust focus during filming by twisting the focus recall ring.

Canon EF 500mm F/4L IS II USM lens design
The new Canon EF 500mm lens has been designed as part of Canon’s renowned elite L-series, combining exceptional-quality optics with stylish designs. The new Canon lens also features a revised layout, with carefully-positioned controls that improve everyday operation. The AF stop buttons are now location-adjustable, improving ergonomics by allowing users to custom-select the position of the lens grip where the AF stop buttons are located.

Canon EF 500mm F/4L IS II USM weatherproof lens
Mechanical improvements include optional long or short foot tripod mounts suitable for monopods or tripods. An improved tripod collar rotational mechanism provides a smoother movement when turning the lens from portrait to landscape orientation, and a Kensington-type wire security lock has also been included, keeping the lens secure during location-based shoots. The robust design is also weatherproof, making the Canon 500mm II USM lens suitable for use in extreme conditions when paired with a weatherproof EOS body.
