(From Canon lens literature) Get ready to capture the action. The EF 600mm f/4L IS III USM offers professional and advanced photographers the excellent image quality of a Canon L series super telephoto lens and is the world's lightest 600mm f/4.0 lens^. For brilliantly clear results even in challenging situations, Super Spectra Coatings (SSC) and Air Sphere Coatings (ASC) help minimize ghosting and flare. The inclusion of heat-rejecting paint and two-layer barrel structure helps you shoot longer even in hot weather. Usability is further improved with a shorter minimum focusing distance, full-time manual AF and two easily selectable focus presets to help you quickly dial in the shot you want. Highly versatile, the EF 600mm f/4L IS III USM makes it easy to bring the action clear and up close in virtually any situation.
Revised Optics for a Lighter Super Telephoto EF L Lens
Featuring carefully refined optics, the EF 600mm f/4L IS III USM offers a familiar feel to its predecessor while being even more comfortable to handle thanks to its significantly lighter build. Super UD lens elements offer improved image quality while being more compact in size, while the Image Stabilizer unit has also had its weight reduced. This results in a lens that's more than twenty percent, or approx. 1.92 lbs., lighter than its predecessor. Optical placement has also been improved, with the center of gravity now closer to the rear. This allows users to position the lens more easily for fast framing of moving subjects.
Continues Strong Tradition of Image Quality Associated with L Series Lenses
An excellent addition to Canon's L series collection of lenses, the
Super Spectra Coating (SSC) and Air Sphere Coating (ASC) Minimize Ghosting and Flare
To create memorable images with vibrant colors and deep lifelike contrast, minimizing unwanted flare and ghosting is crucial. Canon's Super Spectra Coating (SSC) helps reject extraneous light wavelengths, maintaining overall image quality and color fidelity. Additionally, Canon's Air Sphere Coating (ASC) helps minimize unwanted glare and reflections.

Customizable Electronic Focusing Ring
A customizable electronic manual focusing ring helps ensure you'll get the shot that you want at the right moment. Three sensitivity levels are available to select how quick and precise you want to adjust the focus. This can help whether you need a slow speed to switch between someone's eyes in a distant profile, or a fast speed to dial in on different birds in a large, swiftly moving flock. Additionally, manual focus is still possible while autofocus is engaged, letting you finetune focus adjustments to suit your shooting preferences.
Up to Two Focus Presets Available
Quickly select between two points with focus presets. Especially useful for fixed-position sports photography, you can choose two exact focus distances, and with a simple twist of the recall ring, swap between them. If you're on the sidelines of a soccer game, one focus point could be the home team's goal, and the other point the visiting team's goal. A twist of the recall ring will help ensure your most important photos are sharply in focus.
