    • Spanning a versatile range of long focal lengths, this telephoto zoom is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide a 160-640mm equivalent focal length range.
    • Three LD (low dispersion) elements are used in the optical design to greatly reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color accuracy throughout the zoom range.
    • An eBAND coating has been applied to suppress ghosting and lens flare for improved contrast when working in backlit conditions.
    • VC image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for more effective handheld shooting in difficult lighting conditions.
    • An Ultrasonic Silent Drive (USD) autofocus motor delivers quick and precise focusing performance to suit working with moving subjects. This motor also affords full-time manual focus control, and it is possible to focus on subjects as close as 4.9' away.
    • Dual Micro-Processing Unit control system contributes to quick and responsive performance for both the autofocus and Vibration Compensation systems.
    • A sealed, dust- and moisture-resistant construction benefits this lens' use in inclement conditions, and a fluorine coating has also been applied to the front lens element to protect against dust, dirt, and smearing.
    • Through the use of magnesium alloy components, the lens's physical design is both lightweight and durable.
    • An optional removable rotating tripod collar is available, which features an Arca-type compatible foot and benefits working with the lens atop a tripod or monopod.
    • Supports working with the optional Teleconverter 1.4x to further extend the effective focal length range to 140-560mm.
    • Compatible with optional TAP-in Console for fine-tuning select focusing adjustments and for updating lens firmware.
