Protect your lens from scratches with a UV filter and take high contrast pictures using a polarization filter.
Beginning sport and nature photographers have been very happy with the versatile Canon 100-400mm lens for years. With the second edition of the lens, Canon shows it has a place in every camera bag. The push/pull system was abandoned in favor of the more conventional rotating zoom ring. The possibility to adjust the resistance of the zoom ring has been kept in place. The accuracy of the lens can be adapted to the personal wishes of each sports and nature photographer. Another important factor is the image stabilization. Like a true sports lens should, the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM offers 4-stop stabilization, which makes handheld shooting possible in a multitude of situations.
