Best 100-400mm Lenses

9 Best 100-400mm Lenses in 2022

These are the very best 100-400mm lenses for a complete selection of different DSLR and mirrorless cameras – just utilize the navigation hyperlinks to move the camera brand name you use.

100-400mm lenses certainly are a good alternative for wildlife, motorsport, airshows, and much more, where they bridge the gap between daily 70-300mm telephotos, which are generally a bit consumer-orientated (and a bit brief inside focal length), and huge, heavy super-telephotos.

The latest news may be the Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG DN OS for L-mount and Sony E-mount digital cameras. This full-frame lens is a useful alternative for Sony owners and a welcome boost to the Panasonic, Sigma, and Leica L-mount camera ranges. We will bring a full review just as soon as we can get a sample for testing.

We’re also looking forward to the epic-sounding Olympus 150-400mm f/4.5 super-telephoto, which is now expected to arrive in winter 2020.

Most camera manufacturers offer their own 100-400mm lenses or near-equivalents. Not everyone sticks strictly to the 100-400mm range, though. For example, it’s 80-400mm for Nikon and 150-450mm for Pentax, whereas Sony markets a 100-400mm lens for its E-mount cameras but a 70-400mm zoom for A-mount bodies.

In all cases, there’s nothing to stop you from using any of the lenses featured in our guide on crop-sensor cameras, where you’ll get even greater telephoto reach. Indeed, the Fujifilm and Panasonic lenses are designed exclusively for APS-C and Micro Four Thirds cameras, with crop aspects of 1.5x and 2x respectively.
