Product Description

Product Description

The EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM Lens with Internal 1.4x Extender from Canon is a high-performance super-telephoto zoom lens with a built-in 1.4x extender that converts the focal range and maximum aperture to 280-560mm f/5.6. The extender is located at the base of the lens and applied with a simple lever switch. The EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM Lens features one Fluorite and four Ultra-low Dispersion optical elements that deliver sharper images with fewer chromatic aberrations. Super-spectra lens coatings minimize ghosting and flare and a Fluorine coating on the front and rear lens elements keep oily smears and fingerprints to a minimum.

From the Manufacturer

EF 200–400mm f/4L IS USM Extender 1.4X

EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM

Designed to satisfy the discriminating needs of sports and wildlife photographers, the EF 200–400mm f/4L IS USM Extender 1.4X is a high-performance super telephoto zoom lens with an optically matched built-in 1.4x extender for maximum versatility. With a simple flick of a switch, the zoom range can be quickly increased to 280–560mm (f/5.6). This capability is extremely useful in applications where it is not possible to change lenses quickly, while also protecting delicate equipment such as a digital SLR camera’s image sensor in environments with dust and high humidity. The EF 200–400mm f/4L IS USM Extender 1.4X incorporates one fluorite and four UD lens elements, which provide excellent correction of chromatic aberration throughout the entire zoom range for professional quality images with high resolution, contrast and color fidelity, while a 9-blade circular aperture helps deliver beautiful, soft backgrounds. It utilizes inner focusing, ring USM, a high-speed CPU and optimized AF algorithms for fast and accurate autofocusing. And, with Power Focus mode, focus shifts are quiet and smooth, which is essential for filmmaking. Image stabilization is effective up to four shutter speed steps, with three image stabilization modes (standard, panning, and during exposure only) providing excellent results for a wide range of subjects. Optimized lens placement and coatings deliver outstanding color balance, while helping to minimize ghosting and flare. The lens is highly resistant to dust and water, enabling shooting even in harsh conditions. A fluorine coating on front and rear lens surfaces repels dust particles and makes the lens easier to clean.

I love the fact that I can switch back and forth between having the teleconverter off or on.
Deri C. Dority
I will definitely be using this lens a lot for nature photography and some of the family "action" photography that I do.
Kevin Scott
This lens is not for everyone, but if you can afford it no zoom lens on the market comes close.

I have had this lens for over a month and have used it at horse shows, rodeos and on wildlife and landscapes. It is such an amazing lens. I am using it on a Canon 1Dx and Canon 5D M3. With both cameras the focus is extremely fast (no lag). I love the fact that I can switch back and forth between having the teleconverter off or on. The images are unbelievably crisp, even with the teleconverter on. The crispness is through out the entire photo, edge to edge. I have not had any problems with chromatic aberration. There is very faint vignetting when shooting wide open at the furthest distance, with the teleconverter on, but it is barely noticeable. The bokeh is beautiful....I have noticed a rather interesting crystal looking bokeh when taking pictures of a foreground object with fog or dust in the background. It is unusual but not unpleasant....
There are 4 buttons surrounding the lens toward the front. You can press any of those buttons and lock the focus for 10 seconds which has worked great with some of my rodeo pictures and jumping photos.
The lens comes in a heavy, sturdy suitcase.....Yes the lens is heavy, but I carry it in a Tamrac long lens backpack that carries the lens attached to the camera at the same time. With my Canon 1Dx and the 200-400mm lens together, the total weight is 15 lbs. I have been mounting it on a Monostat Monopod with a Really Right Stuff Monopod head and Really Right Stuff Long Lens Support System for added stability. I also have used it on a RRS Gimbal Head which makes it much easier to handle for birding. All and all, this has become my favorite lens. The quality of images really blows me away. I will try to post some images if I can figure out how to do it....

The downside of this lens is obviously the cost and that is an unavoidable issue that each individual will have to weigh up considering the possible use. This review however is intended to address the issue of whether the use of a lens with incorporated extender compromises sharpness of imaging as some have suggested.

Since purchasing this lens, and living in the Highlands of Scotland, it has become a much used favourite lens and is used in conjunction with the 24-70L II and the 70-200L II for alternative versions of the same subjects. All three of these lenses deliver the same levels of sharpness in practice. The otherwise excellent EF300L prime has been retained for rapid hand holding when the required stability cannot be provided for the 200-400mm f/4L.

In actual use, the new lens is certainly as sharp as the other lenses mentioned above but is also far more demanding in its use. It requires absolute stability to achieve best or even adequate results. This has been achieved by wrapping strips of rubber draft excluder around the hood which enables the car roof or other handy objects to be used for stability without damaging either the lens body or the support. This is far quicker and more stable than using a tripod.

Using this simple but effective technique, recent images taken of a ferry going across the local river at just under 2 miles were so sharp that the registration plates of the vehicles could easily be read. The images were so sharp that the customer, for whom the images were taken, could not use them as they felt it breached data confidentiality. I provide this as a simple example of how sharp this lens can be when used with total stability in real life situations.

I have used this lens all over the U.S. and Eastern Africa as well. Performance of the lens is top notch as to be expected by the price tag. It's not light, but it's not too heavy either. It is probably canon's most versatile lens outside of the 70-200mm 2.8 IS II.

Owning this lens eliminates most of the needs of several others. Need 200-800mm range or anything in between, this lens has you covered. To get to the 800mm length, you need to add a 1.4x teleconverter + the internal 1.4x and use either a 5d III or a 1D series body. I have achieved excellent results using the 1.4x internal and an external 1.4x teleconverter.

If you own other superteles, owning this lens will definately make you rack your brain deciding if you need that 300mm 2.8 IS II, 400mm 2.8 IS II, 500mm IS II, or even the 600mm IS II. This lens can pretty much match them in the IQ department.

Yes it is expensive but like most things in life, you usually get what you pay for.

May I say up front that were the 200-400 priced at, say, $7000 I would suffer no such ambivalence. Given a $12k tag, I can't escape having mixed feelings about the 200-400. I do not own this lens but rented the lens for one week from a trusted rental house in Cordova TN. My rental served, in part, as a pre-purchase audition. Our rental lens was used for one week shooting dog water rescue testing in available light. This type of work could work could be likened to shooting agility outdoors, on water and often in high-contrast light. Normally I'd use the 200/2, 70-200 II and the 100-400 to cover this kind of shoot with 1Dx and 1D IV bodies. The 200-400 was used to replace both the 200/2 and the 100-400 during our rental period, and the lens was used only on a 1Dx. I rarely used the drop-in CP.

The 200-400 image quality is good, but not uppermost in the Canon line. I'd describe the lens as sharp without the TC engaged; and sharpness to fall off modestly but measurably once the 1.4 is engaged. I would not place sharpness with the 70-200 II, however. There is little comparison, in my mind, between sharpness and rendition of the 200-400 and the 200/2 or 300/2.8 - but that comparison may not be a fair one. The 200-400 is quite contrasty, and color rendition is vibrant. I'd go so far as to say that the lens *has a look*.

Auto focus speed is good and AF is decisive on the 1Dx, but definitely not what we enjoy on the current 2.8 zooms or large aperture telephoto primes. 200-400 AF and IS are considerably better, however, than the 100-400 as you would expect them to be. The 200-400 IS is excellent, and the Mode-3 tripod IS is a pleasure to use. Several times I unintentionally engaged the internal 1.
