The Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens is a full-frame Canon lens primarily aimed at people interested in Wildlife Photography and capturing fast-moving action.
Dust and moisture-resistant, this tough L-series lens is one of the most popular lenses among advanced and professional DSLR camera owners. Featuring a constant f/2.8 aperture enables photographers to have uncompromising control over their shutter speed and depth of field. This means that when progressing through the focal range of this lens, the aperture will not change unless the photographer is shooting in shutter speed priority mode or if they choose to adjust the aperture manually. The 8-blade aperture construction of this lens also helps to deliver attractive out-of-focus highlights as the lens creates attractive separation between the intended subject and the background.
To combat the instability inherent in using a large telephoto lens, the EF 70-200mm features Canon’s advanced image stabilisation (IS) technology. This will allow users to take pictures with shutter speeds up to 4 stops slower. High quality Ultra-low dispersion (UD) glass elements are included in the structure of this 70-200mm lens. The five UD elements help to minimise the impact of chromatic aberrations and boost image clarity. The 70-200mm also benefits from Canon’s Ultrasonic Motor focusing technology, quietly and quickly moving its 23 glass elements in 19 groups, for accurate focusing. It also offers full-time manual focus override, enabling photographers to make fine adjust focus quickly without turning off the AF.
This lens is built for professional use, with its robust construction and ability to maximise the resolution of any Canon DSLR that it’s paired with.
