A super-telephoto lens, ideal for news photography and shooting distant subjects in track and field, winter sports, and water sports. This premium lens includes a dedicated, custom-tuned 1.25x teleconverter that extends the focal length to 1000 mm with effective maximum aperture of f/7, while maintaining outstanding optical performance.
Its durable magnesium alloy body and two fluorite elements substantially minimize lens weight and shift the center of gravity to the rear, providing comfortable, well-balanced handling. The fluorite elements achieve higher transmission rates and lower dispersion than regular or ED glass elements.
Electromagnetic aperture control provides highly accurate control of the rounded diaphragm blades, delivering enhanced stability of auto exposure control during continuous shooting. The Vibration Reduction feature minimizes the effect of camera shake, letting you use shutter speeds that are up to four stops slower.
