Worthy successor to the lauded Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS USM, the EF 500mm f/4.0L IS II USM Lens features completely redesigned Fluorite optics that deliver sharper images with less chromatic aberration and has a lighter weight thanks to magnesium and titanium construction elements. Because image stabilization technology in super telephoto lenses may inadvertently over-compensate and interfere with composing and framing distant or moving subjects, the EF 500mm f/4L IS II USM includes an advanced third Image Stabilization mode (Mode 3) that activates IS only when the shutter button is fully pressed.

This allows users to pan fast-moving subjects and then activate IS only when it is precisely required. Additionally, all three IS modes give the equivalent effect of a shutter speed four stops faster, ideally positioning the Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS II USM for professional action photography, from sports to nature. The addition of the Power Focus mode enables smooth focus change when shooting video. Buttons and switches are redesigned for intuitive, deliberate operation, and dust and water sealing keeps the EF 500mm f/4L IS II USM functioning flawlessly in even the most challenging environments.

Gallo M. from Palos Park, IL on July 04, 2012:
Having owned all of the Nikon and Canon super-telly lenses, I would rate this a tie with the Canon 300mm IS II, and better than the rest. Lightweight enough to hand hold for extended periods of time, 4-stop IS, and fabulous IQ. Excep for the price, it can't be beat!
