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 | [09/04/14] I've been using this one for Tennis the past few weeks. Probably the sharpest zoom lens I've worked with but not quite as sharp as the 300mm f4L IS USM. Had no need to use the IS function.

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.
