Product Highlights

  • Magnesium/Titanium for Lighter Weight
  • 3 IS Modes for 4-Stop Advantage
  • Smooth Focus Change for Video
  • Redesigned, Intuitive Buttons/Switches
  • Overview

    Succeeding the widely-respected Canon 500mm F/4L IS USM, the new Canon 500mm F/4L IS II USM lens is being developed for photographers who require high performance, fast aperture and a longer focal length. The redesigned, lightweight lens body will provide added mobility alongside enhanced protection against dust and water, making it ideal for the toughest shooting conditions.

    First and foremost, image sharpness has been enhanced with completely redesigned fluorite optics that deliver reduced chromatic aberration. The lighter weight (1.5 lbs lighter due to magnesium and titanium construction elements) is always welcome in large telephoto lenses. Using 3 IS (Image Stabilization) modes allows you to shoot at shutter speeds 4 stops slower, and the advanced third IS mode activates only when the shutter button is fully pressed, so you can pan with fast-moving subjects without the IS function interfering with composition and framing.

    Buttons and switches have been redesigned to give you more intuitive operation, and dust and water sealing keeps the lens functioning even in less than ideal conditions. A Power Focus mode allows smooth focus change while shooting video.

  • Redesigned fluorite optics for sharper images and less chromatic aberration.
  • Lighter weight due to magnesium and titanium construction elements.
  • Three IS (Image Stabilization) modes offer a 4-stop shutter speed advantage.
  • Advanced image stabilization Mode 3 activates only when shutter button is fully pressed, allowing for panning to follow fast-moving subjects.
  • Power Focus mode allows smooth focus change when shooting video.
  • Dust and water sealing for shooting in the most challenging environments.
  • Redesigned switches and buttons for more intuitive operation.
