Canon - EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens
Quick Overview |
Improving upon one of the most celebrated lenses in the Canon EF line is no easy feat, but Canon has done just that. The all-new EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM increases the speed, performance and optical quality of the EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS USM while maintaining all of the characteristics that have made it a legend for professionals and advanced amateurs alike.

The EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM features one fluorite and five UD elements for increased optical quality and reduced chromatic aberration. It has a minimum focusing distance of 1.2m/3.9 ft. at all zoom settings, which is useful for photographers in smaller spaces trying to get closer to a subject. It features a next-generation Optical Image Stabilizer, providing up to 4 stops of correction at all focal lengths.

And as with all L-series lenses, the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM is dust- and moisture-resistant and designed for use in the challenging environments typical of rigorous professional use.

Comments | [01/31/13] Upgraded from the non-IS version I. Outstanding lens, no issues, no complaints. Got a great deal on a refurbished one from Canon.

Comments | [06/19/12] I bought this lens to replace the previous version after trying it out several times last year. I was truly impressed with the clarity and how much quicker it is than the older version.

Comments | [08/09/11] I'm leaving Canon and headed for the dark side but I will miss this lens a bunch. I sort of gave up on the 70-200's from Canon and sold my last one about six years ago and just used the f/4L version instead. Peter Miller told me about how good this one was and so I forked out the cash and was really glad I did. This lens is amazingly sharp, super fast AF on the 1D bodies especially, and when you use the 1.4III on it, I really cannot tell it from a prime. This is a lot of money but might be worth it if you use this focal length a lot.... Awesome AF speed as well

Comments | [05/25/11] Super sharp throughout the range, even at 200mm. I can't recommend this upgrade enough.

Comments | [05/25/11] This lens delivers on all the hype the previous version couldn't. The biggest improvement is at 200mm where it's finally sharp at f/2.8. If you do available light shooting, this lens is worth its weight in gold.

Comments | [05/25/11] Compared to it's predecessor the sharpness seems greatly increased throughout the focal range , the AF is dramatically faster on my 5d II bodies and I find the shorter minimum focusing distance super helpful. Cons: Very expensive. Is it worth $500 more than v1? Maybe. You just have to decide if the II will make you that much more $ than the I.

Comments | [05/24/11] Probably the sharpest, fastest lens of its genre that I've owned. Bokeh is outstanding, AF is fast and IS is a definite improvement over its predecessor.
