BH #CA40028L3 • MFR #3045C002
Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM Lens
Key Features
  • EF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/32
  • Super UD and Fluorite Elements
  • Super Spectra and Air Sphere Coatings
Pairing a favored super telephoto focal length with a bright f/2.8 maximum aperture, the EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM is a Canon L-series optic well-suited for outdoor, wildlife, and sports applications. This version III of this prized lens features a lighter weight design along with a sophisticated optical layout and updated handling capabilities. The fast maximum aperture enables extensive control over depth of field for isolating subjects using selective focus, and it also benefits working in difficult lighting conditions. Both Super UD and fluorite elements are used in the optical design to help reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for high clarity and color accuracy, and Super Spectra and Air Sphere Coatings have been applied to individual elements to suppress flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color neutrality when working in backlit conditions.

Does this lens with 1Dx II fit on E6 eagle series ...

Does this lens with 1Dx II fit on E6 eagle series fotopro tripod with gimble head.?
Asked by: Jay
I would say yes. But check the weight of the lens & camera plus any attachments against the max weight spec for the E6. Also, you'll need an Arca-type plate like the Oben 53 Long Lens QR plate or invest a little more and get the Wimberly AP-601 Replacement Foot. I chose the foot replacment and it works well.
