Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM ReviewPosted on 2011-10-05 18:56:26 by Thomas De Maesschalck
Combine a 400mm full-frame prime lens with a fast maximum aperture of f/2.8 and there are two things you can be assured of – size and weight. The mighty Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM measures a whopping 163 x 343mm (484mm long with the lens hood fitted) and tips the scales at 3.85kg.
It's supplied in its own custom-made hard case that, in itself, exceeds the maximum carry-on size for most airlines. Indeed, you don't fit this lens to your camera, you fit the camera to the lens. But sometimes, big really is beautiful.
