Key Features

Cherished for sports and wildlife applications, the EF 600mm f/4L IS III USM is a Canon L-series super telephoto lens distinguished by its advanced, lightweight design, quick and intuitive handling, and high speed performance. Using fluorite, Super UD, and aspherical elements, both chromatic and spherical aberrations are kept to minimum in order to realize sharp, clear image quality with accurate rendering and color fidelity. Both Super Spectra and Air Sphere Coatings also contribute to color accuracy and helps to control flare and ghosting when working in backlit and harsh lighting conditions.

Ryan, if you're out there, I would be very interested to know if Canon's 18Nov2019 firmware update solved your IS issues (which you posted a detailed review about on 11Sep2019)?
Asked by: Stephen
Update: the following issue has been addressed via a firmware update. Note that a 600mm III lens image stabilization problem was being reported by, initially, some 5D Mark IV and other camera users. Reportedly, this lens produced a ghost-like blur at longer shutter speeds when shooting through the viewfinder with IS enabled. Initial reports indicated that 1/250 or 1/200 and longer shutter speeds produced this effect and further reports specify that the blur disappeared at 1/250 and only longer shutter speeds are concerned (1/160 was reportedly the worst). Again, this issue has been addressed by firmware update v1.1.2.

Does the lens hood lock on like on the Canon 100-400 II?
Asked by: Tammy
It locks on but not in the same way. The 100-400mm has a traditional bayonet mount: align, twist, and it clicks into locked position. The 600mm hood fits on to the hood mount and then you tighten the lock knob to secure it. See page ENG -19 OF MANUAL: http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/9/0300033279/01/ef600f4lisiiiusm-im-eng.pdf

I own version II of this lens and want to upgrade to version III. I also own both a 5D Mark IV and a 5R. I am concerned that version III image stabilization will not work well with either camera. Is there any update on this issue particularly with the Canon 5R?
Asked by: Ronald
Eric, unfortunately, I just traded it about a week ago. I would have considered an outright buy.

Does I need to buy an additional filter and drop in filter for the 600III or does the camera come with a ready to use filter? Do I have to buy a drop in if I do not immediately have a need for ND or a polarizer?
Asked by: Suzana
This lens already comes with a drop in filter holder with a protective filter. A CP or ND filter can be purchased seperately.

Is there a hard case for this lens as was the case for prior versions of the 600mm f/4?
Asked by: Vicki
Canon includes the Canon LS600 Soft Lens Case, B&H # CALS600, as a free accessory with the purchase of the Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS III USM Lens. However, if you are looking for a hard case alternative, Canon does offer the Canon 600C Lens Case, B&H # CA600C, as a separate purchasable accessory. It is a special order item we do not keep in our inventory or order until we receive an order from a customer. There is an estimated 2-4 week arrival estimate after purchase.

This lens isn't listed on Canon's website anymore. Anyone have any insight on this? Just very nervous about dropping 13K for a lens that isn't perfect.
Asked by: Kim
Just looked at canon's website and the 600 was there. Great lens.
