This is currently Canon's longest telephoto lens, and an excellent choice for any long-distance application, especially outdoor sports, wildlife, and astro photography. Despite its long 800mm focal length, its magnesium alloy exterior makes it lighter then the EF 600mm f/4L IS lens, weighing in at less than 10 lbs. The lens shares the same lightweight, weather-resistant construction as the rest of the Canon IS super telephoto lenses, as well as their control layout, weight distribution, and mechanical manual focus. Its Image Stabilizer mechanism allows the use of shutter speeds up to 4 times slower with no perceptible increase in image blur. For optimum visual performance, the lens incorporates four types of special optical elements: aspherical elements to correct spherical aberrations, and refracting Fluorite, low dispersion, and ultra-low dispersion elements to eliminate secondary chromatic aberrations.
