Canon recently announced that there’s a new telephoto lens in the works for its lineup of EOS DSLR cameras. Currently in development is the EF200-400mm f/4L IS USM EXTENDER 1.4x zoom – that features an integrated focal length extender to take its zoom range to 280-560mm.

The lens will be showcased Feb. 9 – 12 at the CP+ event in Yokohama, Japan and is being developed as part of Canon’s acclaimed L-series of professional lenses. The new lens – featuring an enhanced weatherproof construction – will be an ideal addition for sports and wildlife photographers who require high performance, fast aperture and a flexible telephoto range. It will also enable photographers to shoot a greater breadth of subjects using a single lens, delivering the best possible image quality at all focal lengths.

The EF200-400mm f/4L IS USM EXTENDER 1.4x is scheduled for launch later this year.
