This very mobile 500mm super telephoto lens has the double attraction of an original Image Stabilizing mechanism and a bright large aperture of f/4. Its newly designed optical system consists of 17 elements in 13 groups, including one fluorite lens element and two UD lens elements. These have eliminated virtually all aberrations to achieve a level of image quality previously impossible to attain with such high contrast and sharpness. With a ring-type USM and an improved drive algorithm, its autofocus is the fastest in the world. The lens's closest focusing distance has been reduced to only 4.5m, and it is equipped with full-time mechanical manual focusing, focus preset, and an AF Stop function. The use of a magnesium alloy for the lens barrel minimizes weight and the lens offers superior dust-proof and drip-proof performance. The large f/4 aperture permits the use of autofocus when using an extender. Image Stabilization is even more effective when combined with a monopod, making shooting even more accurate.
