The Tamron SP designation is reserved for lenses developed with special emphasis on extraordinary photographic performance. Engineers are free to innovate in an uncommon atmosphere where optical performance comes before price, resulting in lenses that satisfy the demands of discerning photographers.
Tamron's SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di LD (IF) Macro exemplifies the second of the two zoom focal lengths considered essential by many professionals. At just 7.6 inches long and weighing only 40.6 oz., long days of shooting become easier and extraordinary optical design and exacting manufacturing assure the image quality that makes long shoots rewarding. A fast and constant F2.8 maximum aperture, renders cluttered backgrounds well out of focus, extends low-light shooting freedom and enables a brighter viewfinder image. Its IF (Internal Focus) mechanism maintains a fixed barrel length throughout the focusing range and superb optics, featuring LD (Low Dispersion) glass to assure remarkable image quality.

Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM
The EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens delivers a superb combination of cutting-edge performance, compact construction and brilliant resolving power that’s great for sports and wildlife photography. The lens features one fluorite and one super UD element to help provide impressive contrast and resolution with reduced chromatic aberration across the entire zoom range. Canon’s new Air Sphere Coating (ASC) helps significantly reduce backlit flaring and ghosting, while fluorine coatings on the front and rear lens surfaces help lessen smears and fingerprints. A 9-blade circular aperture renders beautiful, soft backgrounds, and a 3 mode (standard, panning and exposure only) Optical Image Stabilizer provides up to 4 steps* of image correction. The new inner focusing AF system helps ensure fast and accurate focus down to 3.2 ft. with a .31x maximum magnification. Usability enhancements include a rotation-type zoom ring with adjustable zoom torque for more precise, customizable zoom performance, a redesigned tripod mount that can be attached and detached without removing the lens from the camera, and an all-new lens hood with a side window that makes it simple to adjust specialty filters-like polarizers-without the need to remove the hood. Ruggedly constructed with advanced dust and water sealing for durability in a range of environments, the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens is a stellar performer with refined controls for a wide variety of situations.

Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM
L-series super telephoto zoom lens equipped with an Image Stabilizer. The fluorite and Super UD-glass elements largely eliminate secondary spectrum.
