The Canon EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 L IS II USM Lens is a worthy success to the well-received MK I. Featuring a newly redesigned optical system for excellent sharpness; rotating zoom design; an improved minimum focusing distance of 0.98m; and a 3-mode Image Stabiliser, this solid, super-telephoto lens will perform to the highest of standards in a variety of photographic genres. This includes sport, wildlife, travel, and portraiture. When working with APS-C sized image sensors the lens delivers angles of view that are equivalent to a 160-640mm on a full-frame camera. Furthermore, the lens is weather sealed, offers compact dimensions and is relatively lightweight so that it can be taken anywhere.

Expanded Canon EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 L IS II USM Lens Key Features:
Exceptionally Fast Autofocus
Outstandingly fast and near-silent USM autofocus locks on with excellent accuracy. The full-time manual focus override delivers precise adjustment without the need to move the camera away from the eye of the operator. The lens can focus as close as 0.98m allowing for intuitive reaction to subjects that come unexpectedly close such as wild animals or pets.
Brand New Optical Image Stabilisation
The newly employed Optical Image Stabiliser System has undergone a complete redesign resulting in up to 4-stops of camera shake compensation. Additionally, it offers three levels of stabilisation that can be found on Canon Mark II telephoto-zoom lenses. Mode 1 detects movement in two planes in the same way as the previous IS systems. Mode 2 is a new algorithm that detects movement in one plane making it ideal for panning. Last but not least, Mode 3 - that can only be activated during exposure – supports panning without the IS over-compensating for movement which can have a diminishing effect on the image quality.

Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan. You will also receive reminder letters and text at the end of the deferral period to remind you when your first payment is due.
