Canon Releases the World’s First Telephoto Zoom with a built-in 1.4x Extender

Canon announces the new EF200-400mm F4 L USM Extender 1.4x lens. It will be available end May at authorized Canon Dealers. The recommended retail pice is S$16,599.

Engage the extender and you get a 560mm focal length at f5.6. It is a great innovation. It eliminates the need for a photographer to carry additional lenses of greater focal length or having to put in place the 1.4 teleconverter which makes for another point of failure and a weaker structure.

Of course you lose the ability to put a 2.0x teleconverter.
