Canon EF 400mm F/4 DO IS II USM
A telephoto lens allows you to zoom in on far away objects. This is particularly useful when you need to photograph a subject from a distance, such as wildlife photography, or even in some cases street photography where you can’t get near the subject.
A prime lens has a fixed focal length. In general, these are sharper, with a wider aperture.
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
