CANON EF 200-400 F4.0L IS USM EX­TEN­DER 1.4X

Camera - - IN PRACTICE | WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY -

Canon was first with the con­cept of in­cor­po­rat­ing a tele­con­verter into a zoom lens and, while this ar­range­ment adds sig­nif­i­cantly to pur­chase price, there’s no doubt­ing the con­ve­nience. At a flick of a lever the 200-400mm f4.0 be­comes a 280-560mm f5.6 su­pertele­photo zoom. There’s a whop­ping 25 el­e­ments in there (33 when the tele­con­verter is in play), but this is a Canon L se­ries lens so the op­ti­cal per­for­mance is guar­an­teed and the op­ti­cal sta­biliser gives up to four stops of cor­rec­tion for cam­era shake. Weather proof­ing fur­ther ex­tends this lens’s ca­pa­bil­i­ties in the wilds. $13,999 (es­ti­mated av­er­age street price). Visit www.canon.com.au
