Instructions
Thank you for purchasing a Canon IS USM lens.
The Canon EF100–400mm f/4.5–5.6L IS USM
lens is a high-performance telephoto zoom lens
for EOS cameras. It is equipped with an image
stabilizer effective for hand-held shooting at slow
shutter speeds.
● “IS” stands for Image Stabilizer.

a Handling Cautions
If the lens is taken from a cold environment into a
warm one, condensation may develop on the lens
surface and internal parts. To prevent condensation in
this case, first put the lens into an airtight plastic bag
before taking it from a cold to warm environment. Then
take out the lens after it has warmed gradually. Do the
same when taking the lens from a warm environment into
a cold one.
Conventions used in this instruction
Warning to prevent lens or camera malfunction

1. Mounting and
Detaching the Lens
2. Setting the Focus
Mode
AF
MF
See your camera’s instructions for details on
mounting and detaching the lens.
● After detaching the lens, place the lens with the
rear end up to prevent the lens surface and
contacts from getting scratched.
● If the contacts get soiled, scratched, or have
fingerprints on them, corrosion or faulty
connections can result. The camera and lens
may not operate properly.
● If the contacts get soiled or have fingerprints on
them, clean them with a soft cloth.
● If you remove the lens, cover it with the dust
cap. To attach it properly, align the lens mount
index and the index of the dust cap as shown
in the diagram, and turn clockwise. To remove it,
reverse the order.
ENG-4
To shoot in autofocus mode, set the focus mode
switch to AF.
To use only manual focusing, set the focus
mode switch to MF, and focus by turning the
focusing ring.

3. Switching the
Focusing Range
A range switch lets you select a focusing range
of either 1.8 m/5.9 ft. to infinity or 6.5 m/21.3 ft.
to infinity, depending on shooting conditions.
This setting can reduce the actual autofocusing
time.
The focusing ring always works, regardless of
the focus mode.
● After autofocusing in ONE SHOT AF mode, focus
manually by pressing the shutter button halfway and
turning the focusing ring.
● Before switching the focusing range, turn the
focusing ring to select a focusing distance
somewhere within the desired range.
● If you do not set the lens to a focusing distance that
is within the selected focusing range, autofocusing
may stop when it reaches the range boundary. This
is not a fault. If it happens, press the shutter button
halfway down again.
ENG-5
5. Adjusting the Zooming Touch
Move the zoom ring forward or backward to
zoom.
You can adjust the zooming “touch” (resistance)
as needed by holding the focusing ring in place
and turning the adjustment ring.
● Turn the adjustment ring towards the word SMOOTH
to reduce the zooming touch, or towards TIGHT to
increase it. To lock the zoom ring in place, turn the
adjustment ring towards TIGHT until it stops.
● Be sure to finish zooming before focusing.
Changing the zoom ring after focusing can affect
the focus.
● To prevent unintended zooming when not
shooting, be careful not to set the zooming
touch too loose.
● This lens can partially obstruct the light from the
built-in flash units. To avoid this, use an external
flash.
ENG-6
6. Image Stabilizer
You can use the image stabilizer in AF or MF mode.

Set the image stabilizer
switch to (ON).
● If you are not going to use the
image stabilizer function, set
the switch to
(OFF).
Select the stabilizer mode.
● Select MODE 1 for standard
photography. MODE 1
corrects all vibrations no
matter whether the camera is
being held horizontally,
vertically, or at an angle.
● To pan a moving subject,
select MODE 2.
MODE 2 corrects vibrations
and shaking only in the
direction at right angles to the
camera’s panning movement.
Press the shutter button
down halfway to check the
stabilization.
● Make sure the image in the
viewfinder is stable, then
press the shutter button all
the way down to take
pictures.
ENG-7
7. Tips on Using the Image Stabilizer
The image stabilizer is particularly effective for hand-held shots in the following conditions.
● MODE 1
● MODE 2
(ON)
(ON)
(OFF)
q In semi-darkened areas such as indoors or
outdoors at night.
w In locations where flash photography is
prohibited, such as art museums and theater
stages.
e In situations where fast shutter settings
cannot be used.
r In situations where your footing is uncertain.
ENG-8
(OFF)
q When panning subjects in motion.
w When following subjects that are moving
erratically.
* We recommend MODE 1 for all other situations.
Tips on Using the Image Stabilizer
● The image stabilizer does not compensate for
subject movement (where the subject itself moves).
● The image stabilizer should be
(OFF) in the
following situations. If the switch is
(ON), the
image stabilizer may not operate correctly.
• Shots using a tripod
• Bulb (time exposure) shots
● The image stabilizer may not be fully effective in
the following situations:
• Panning with large camera movements in
MODE 1.
• Taking pictures from a moving object such as a
vehicle in MODE 1.
• Taking pictures other than panning shots in
MODE 2.
● When this lens is used with an extender, the
image stabilizer operates normally with models
sold since the fall of 1993 (EOS REBEL XS/500,
EOS-1N/DP/HS/RS, EOS ELAN IIE/50E,
EOS REBEL G/500 N, EOS 5000/888, EOS IX,
EOS IX Lite/IX 7 etc.), but does not operate with
the following EOS-series cameras sold before
that date:
* EOS650, EOS620, EOS 630/600, EOS RT,
EOS 700, EOS750, EOS850, EOS-1,
EOS A2/A2E/5, EOS10S/10, EOS ELAN/100,
EOS REBEL S/REBEL/1000F/1000,
EOS REBEL SII/REBEL II/1000FN/1000N
● The image stabilizer operates for about two
seconds even when your finger is off the shutter
button. Do not remove the lens while the
stabilizer is in operation. This will cause a
malfunction.
● With the EOS-1V/HS, EOS-3, EOS ELAN 7E/7/EOS
30/33, EOS ELAN7NE/ELAN7N/EOS30V/33V,
EOS ELAN IIE/50E, EOS REBEL 2000/300,
EOS IX, and EOS D30, the image stabilizer will
not work during self-timer operation.
● The image stabilizer does not operate with the
manual-focus EF-M camera.
If you set the camera’s Custom Function to change
the assigned button to operate the AF, the image
stabilizer will operate when you press the newly
assigned AF button.
ENG-9
8. Infinity Distance Mark
30 50
ft
m
10 20
200 135 100
To compensate for shifting of the infinity focus
point that results from changes in temperature.
The infinity position at normal temperature is the
point at which the vertical line of the L mark is
aligned with the distance indicator on the
distance scale.
9. Infrared Index
30 50
ft
m
10 20
200 135 100
The infrared index corrects the focus setting
when using monochrome infrared film. Focus on
the subject manually, then adjust the distance
setting by moving the focusing ring to the
corresponding infrared index mark.
The intermediate marker between 200 and 135
is 150 mm.
Some EOS cameras cannot use infrared film. See
the instructions for your EOS camera.
For accurate manual focusing on subjects at
infinity distance, look through the viewfinder while
rotating the focusing ring.
ENG-10
● The infrared index position is based on a
wavelength of 800 nm.
● Be sure to observe the manufacture’s
instructions when using infrared film.
● Use a red filter also when you take the picture.
10. Using the Tripod Mount
Adjusting the Tripod Mount
Loosening the orientation lock knob on the tripod mount allows you to turn the lens and camera freely.
This is useful when you want to switch the camera between landscape and portrait positions while it is
mounted on a tripod. Once you have set the camera to the desired position, tighten the lock knob
firmly.
Detaching the Tripod Mount
First remove the lens from the camera and then remove the tripod mount from the lens as shown
below. To attach the tripod mount, reverse the procedure.
Loosen the orientation lock
knob.
Align the red mark on the
tripod mount with the lens
mount index.
Move the tripod mount
towards the back of the
lens.
● Rotate the tripod mount to
align the red marks.
ENG-11
11. Hood
12. Filters
(Sold Separately)
You can attach filters to the filter mounting
thread on the front of the lens.
The ET-83C hood can keep unwanted light out
of the lens, and also protects the lens from rain,
snow, and dust.
To mount the hood, align it with the front of the
lens, and turn clockwise until the hood is firmly
in place.
The hood can be reverse-mounted on the lens
for storage.
When attaching or detaching the hood, grasp the
base of the hood to turn it. To prevent deformation,
do not grasp the rim of the hood to turn it.
ENG-12
● You can use up to two 77 mm/2.8 inch filters with
this lens.
● If you need a polarizing filter, use Canon’s PL-C
77mm II polarizing filter.
● To adjust the polarizing filter, first remove the lens
hood.
● When using the PL-C 77mm II polarizing filter, a lens
cap cannot be mounted.
13. Extenders
