The Canon EF 500mm f4L IS II USM is a super telephoto lens as the successor to Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS USM. It features redesigned Fluorite optics that deliver sharper images with lighter weight. The Canon EF 500mm f4L IS II USM has a third Image Stabilization mode (Mode 3) that activates IS only when the shutter button is fully pressed. All three IS modes give the equivalent effect of a shutter speed four stops faster and make the lens ideal for professional action photography. The dust and water sealing ensures the Canon EF 500mm f4L IS II USM perform well in the most challenging environments. (The sample photos are copyrighted by the owner.
