An ideal set for wildlife photographers, the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II Lens Wildlife Kit by B&H packages a telephoto zoom lens with a sturdy tripod and gimbal head for stability.

Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens

A long-reaching telephoto zoom characterized by a sophisticated optical design and advanced image stabilization technologies, the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens is part of the esteemed L-series developed for full-frame EOS DSLRs. One fluorite element and one Super UD element have been incorporated into the lens' construction, and both help to reduce aberrations and distortions throughout the zoom range in order to deliver notable clarity, image sharpness, and faithful color reproduction. An Air Sphere Coating has also been applied to lens elements in order to reduce lens flare and ghosting for more contrast-rich imagery. Benefitting the optical components of the lens, a four-stop effective Image Stabilizer helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake and can be dedicated to different styles of shooting. Furthermore, a redeveloped rotation-type zoom ring pairs with an internal focusing mechanism, and an Ultrasonic Motor, to deliver quick and intuitive handling to benefit handheld shooting. Positioned as a versatile option for sports and wildlife photographers, this lens' list of attributes make it a viable telephoto zoom for a variety of shooting applications.

Housed within a weather-resistant barrel, this lens also features fluorine coatings on the front and rear elements for protection against fingerprints and smudges from affecting image quality. Zoom control is complemented by a dedicated tension ring for adjusting zoom torque. Additionally, other refined design elements include a tripod collar that can be attached or detached with the lens mounted to the camera and an included lens hood that permits easy control over specialty filters with the hood in place.

Telephoto zoom is compatible with full-frame EF-mount DSLRs, as well as APS-C-format models where it provides a 160-640mm equivalent focal length range.
One fluorite element and one Super Ultra-Low Dispersion element help to correct chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range for a high degree of sharpness, clarity, and color accuracy.
An Air Sphere Coating (ASC) has been applied to lens elements to reduce backlit flaring and ghosting for maintained light transmission and high contrast in strong lighting conditions.
An Optical Image Stabilizer helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed stops to better enable working in low-light conditions and with slower shutter speeds. Additionally, three dedicated image stabilization modes are available—Standard, Panning, and During Exposure Only—and can be selectively employed to suit a variety of types of shooting.
A ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), along with optimized focusing algorithms and a high-speed CPU, is employed to deliver fast, precise, and quiet autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override.
The rotation-type zoom ring offers precise adjustment between zoom positions, especially when shooting handheld, and a zoom torque adjustment ring enables easy setting of the zoom tension for personalized control.
A weather-resistant design protects the lens from dust and moisture to enable its use in inclement conditions. Additionally, fluorine coatings have also been applied to the front and rear lens elements for further protection against fingerprints and smudging.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
A redeveloped tripod collar can be attached or detached from the lens without having to remove the lens from the camera.
The included ET-83D lens hood incorporates a side window for easier adjustment of rotating filters with the hood in place.

Benro TMA47AXL Extra Long Series 4 Mach3 Aluminum Tripod

Support up to 44.1 lb worth of gear with the TMA47AXL Extra Long Series 4 Mach3 Aluminum Tripod from Benro. Made from aluminum, the 3-section legs are secured via twist locks and extend to a maximum height of 85.1". The center column can be replaced with the included short column to allow the tripod to reach a minimum height of 18.7". The rubber feet can be swapped out for metal spikes so that the tripod can be used on hard surfaces, such as ice, or soft surfaces, like carpeting or a lawn. A ballast hook on the center column allows for the addition of stabilizing weight, and the included carrying case protects the tripod during transport. A 3/8"-16 threaded stud on the mounting platform lets you attach a head of your choice.

Oben GH-30 Gimbal Head

Featuring durable yet lightweight aluminum construction, the GH-30 Gimbal Head from Oben is designed to balance a lens and camera along its vertical and horizontal axes. Ideal for shooting moving subjects such as birds, wildlife, and athletic events, the gimbal head ensures you can use your telephoto or zoom lens to quickly aim and shoot your subject. The unit's built-in fluid motion assures smooth and uniform panning. Unwieldy lenses that are normally too large or heavy to be moved and aimed quickly can be tilted or swiveled effortlessly, and large, easy-to-grip locking knobs and an Arca-type quick release plate allow for swift and secure lens mounting. The GH-30 mounts onto most tripods with a 3/8"-16 threaded stud, and the strong and durable curved main arm supports and balances loads up to 44 lb, so even a large lens feels weightless.

Supports up to 44 Pounds
Designed to balance a camera and lens setup of up to 44 lb, the GH-30 gives you the ability to effortlessly maneuver a heavy camera and lens that would normally be too large or cumbersome to move and aim quickly.
Smooth and Fluid Motion
The fluid motion built into the arm of the gimbal lets you effortlessly move your camera while tracking moving subjects such as birds, wildlife, athletes, and airplanes, and with the GH-30 you get smooth and fluid motion when moving the lens along either axis.
Balance and Stability
Adjustable features allow you to quickly balance your gear while providing rigid support and stability. For sports and wildlife photography, the gimbal head provides the stability to balance and hold your camera and lens in place while you get your shot.
Tripod Compatible
Compatible with most tripods that have a 3/8"-16 threaded stud.
Arca-Type Compatible
An Arca-type quick release plate allows you to quickly mount your camera and lens to the gimbal head, and the included plate is designed with security pins to prevent it from accidentally slipping off the mounting platform.
Attaches to Most Lens Collars
Two 1/4"-20 threaded mounting screws and included 1/4"-20 to 3/8"-16 bushings assure compatibility with most lens collars.
Numbered Scales
Numbered scales provide a convenient way to mark the position of your setup so you can quickly rebalance your lens the next time you use it.
Easy to Grip
Easy-to-grip locking knobs securely lock the panning joint, swinging arm, platform adjustment, and quick release plate locks.
Compatible Lenses
Compatible with lenses such as 70-200mm f/2.8 or f/4, 100-400mm, 150-600mm, 300mm f/4, 400mm f/5.6, 200-500mm, and other similar-sized lenses.

question

Where is it made?
Asked by: Anonymous
I don't have the lens here at this location and will not get to it until next week, so I can not look at the lens or the box it came in until then. I can tell you that I am very happy with it. I have taken it on several photo trips and found it to be sharp, stable and very fast focusing. I really appreciate the image stabilization, especially in places where a tripod is not allowed . Good luck.

question

I've got an EF-S 55-250 IS STM kit lens. I was thinking about changing it for this EF 70-300 IS USM lens. Is it worth it?
Asked by: Fran Q.
The 70-300 is a larger and older lens, it should give you sharper optics, being that it is made for a full frame camera, but be slower and not as good for video as the 55-250 IS STM.
