With the seasons changing, photographers are going and getting out to start capturing all the action. And we all know the winter has some beautiful nature to offer those who are willing to seek it out. So if you’re an experienced camera person and want to get the most out of the next few months, you’ll want a lens that can maximize your shooting capabilities.
In other words, it’s time to take a look at a Super Telephoto Lens. It may sound daunting, but these bad boys will help you take pristine long-distance photos with ease, allowing you to capture undisturbed nature scenes without having to get too close. The EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM, for example, is a real beauty. It may be a mouthful to say, but this lens uses fluorite optics to capture sharper images than you ever have before. Add in a redesigned image stabilization system that makes panning smoother and action photography a cinch. This lens is also tailor-made for outdoor use with dust and water sealing plus a fluorine coating that rejects soils, smears, and fingerprints. It’s a heavy-duty lens, but it’s the lightest weight in its class, adding to the portability factor.
If that doesn’t sound quite good enough for you, check out the EF 800mm f/5.6L IS USM – the longest telephoto lens that Canon produces. It’s the kind of thing that professional photojournalists and sports photographers use, consisting of two fluorite lens elements, one UD element, and one Super-UD-glass element plus an image stabilization of up to four stops of correction for camera shake. With all of these components, it’s still incredibly light and utilizes weather-resistant gaskets so you don’t have to worry about easily damaging it when you’re out in the wild.
Canon’s Super Telephoto Camera Lens’s are top-of-the-line and with Christmas coming up, would make a great gift for any serious photographer.
