The longest telephoto lens in the Canon lineup, this lens is fantastic for birding (or spying on your neighbors). It’s light weight, about 10 pounds, not much heavier than the 500 f/4L IS. It’s compatible with the 1.4x II and 2.0x II converters although it will only auto-focus with the 1.4x. And the IS system is the new generation, good for up to four stops!

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