Details

Compact lightweight super-telephoto

The EF 500mm f/4L IS II USM features a lightweight magnesium alloy and titanium construction, which reduces weight without compromising on strength and build quality.

 

Sophisticated optical design

A complex optical design that features fluorite and UD lens elements to tackle aberrations and distortions. A fast f/4 maximum aperture enables use of the Canon Extender EF 2.0x III while retaining AF on EOS-1 series cameras.

 

Fast, quiet auto focus

A ring USM (Ultrasonic motor) uses ultrasonic frequency vibrations to drive extremely rapid auto focus with near-silent operation. A high-speed CPU and optimised AF algorithms contribute further to AF speed. Full time electronic manual focus override is available without having to switch out of AF.

 

Image Stabilizer

Built-in Image Stabilizer technology enables hand-held shooting with shutter speeds up to four stops slower than normal without incurring camera shake. Multiple IS modes improve image quality when panning.

 

IS Mode 3

Ideally suited for all types of action photography especially those disciplines that require the utilisation of panning, the new IS mode 3 only activates the Image Stabilizer element during exposure.

 

Enhanced image quality with SWC coating

Designed for use in digital photography, Canon’s patented Subwavelength structure coating helps minimise the ghosting and flare caused by internal reflections. By eliminating the cause, the coating reduces reflections and helps to deliver crisp, clear images.

 

Power focusing

The EF 500mm f/4L IS II USM’s two-speed Power Focus mode allows focus to be adjusted at a smooth constant speed – perfect when shooting video.

 

L-series quality

The L-series is Canon's flagship professional lens range, representing the best in precision-designed EF optics. L-series lenses combine superior performance with superlative handling, and are resistant to dust and moisture.

  • Up to £370 Canon Lens Cashback

    Cashback on selected Canon lenses, when bought with selected compatible Canon Cameras. For full list of included cameras and lenses, click here.

    Lens and camera body must be purchased between 23/03/16 and 31/01/17, but they do not need to be bought together.

    Only one lens claim per camera body can be made. i.e. If you buy two lenses, you may only claim for the cashback on one.

     

    Lens Cashback cannot be combined with any other promotion. If there is a season promotion, such as Summer Cashback, you may claim either cashback value, not both. If you have already claimed cashback on the camera body, you may not claim cashback with the Lens Cashback promotion.

    Lens Cashback is not valid on standard camera kits, i.e. Canon EOS 80D & 18-135mm F/3.5-5.6 IS USM. It is valid on any Wilkinson Camera kits, such as the EOS 1D X Mark II & EF 100-400mm - if you have any doubt, please contact us before making a purchase.
