Canon's newest version of their wildlife staple lens, the 500 f/4. They shaved about a quarter of the weight off the previous version, very important as you are trekking through the wilderness trying to catch that elusive booby. ;) It's crazy sharp and the AF speed is fantastic. This lens also has Canon's new third IS mode which only operates when you fully press the shutter, giving you 4 stops of IS performance without the lousy battery drain. 

Our lenses do not come with a tripod plate, please rent one here if you need one.

Unlike our other lenses, the super telephoto lenses will be shipped in soft cases which can be used to transport the lens during your rental period.
