Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM

From the manufacturer

The stellar combination of superlative optics, astonishing performance and brilliant construction, the EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM super telephoto is the professional's choice for a long lens, and perfect for nature and wildlife photography. Over 28% lighter than its predecessor and now the lightest lens in its class, the EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM features Fluorite optics that deliver sharper images with less chromatic aberration, a completely redesigned Image Stabilization system that offers up to four extra stops of performance, a newly-developed Fluorine coating that keeps soiling, smears and fingerprints to a minimum, plus new construction in line with only the best that Canon has to offer. With a third Image Stabilization mode (Mode 3) that activates IS only when the shutter button is fully pressed, and giving the equivalent effect of a shutter speed four stops faster, the EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM allows for easy panning and is ideally positioned for professional action photography. With a new security slot for wire-type security locks, buttons and switches are redesigned for intuitive, deliberate operation, and dust and water sealing keeps the lens functioning flawlessly in even the most challenging environments.

From Wikipedia

The Canon EF 400mm are seven super-telephoto lenses made by Canon. These lenses have an EF mount that work with the EOS line of cameras. These lenses are widely used by sports and wildlife photographers.[1]
Canon currently manufactures three 400mm prime lenses:
EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM[2]
EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II USM
EF 400mm f/5.6L USM
The EF 400mm f/5.6L USM is Canon's least expensive 400mm lens and one of the best deals for a super telephoto 400mm focal length lens in the industry. Exceptional sharpness, minimal vignetting, very low distortion, and superb handling of chromatic aberration means this lens does not require image corrections in digital post production software. Having a maximum aperture of f/5.6, it is relatively slow.
The 400mm f/4 DO IS II USM, which replaced an earlier version of the same lens in 2014,[3] is one of only two Canon lenses that make use of diffractive optics (the other is the Canon EF 70-300mm lens). The use of diffractive optics allows the lens to be significantly lighter than it might otherwise be, but at the cost of some image quality.[4][5]
These lenses are compatible with the Canon Extender EF teleconverters.
