Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS USM

From the manufacturer

Super telephoto L-series lens with an Image Stabilizer for use in track and field sports as well as low-light nature and wildlife photography. The fluorite element and two UD-glass elements result in high resolution and high contrast. The ring USM and an improved AF drive algorithm make the AF speed the fastest in the world when used with the EOS-1v and EOS-3. This lens has the same AF stop and focus preset features as the EF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM.

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.
