Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

Rounding out your kit, the Canon TS-E EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM Lens with Accessories Kit from B&H bundles the bright telephoto zoom lens with 77mm circular polarizer and UV filters as well as a lens cleaning kit.

  • Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM Lens

    One of the most versatile lenses available, the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM from Canon is an L-series telephoto zoom distinguished by its bright design and advanced optics. Ideal for a variety of subjects ranging from portraiture to sports, the fast constant f/2.8 maximum aperture excels in difficult lighting conditions and also offers increased control over depth of field for isolating subjects. The optical layout makes use of one fluorite element and five UD elements to suppress chromatic aberrations and color fringing in order to realize a high degree of clarity throughout the zoom range. An Air Sphere Coating is also featured, and works to reduce flare and ghosting for greater color fidelity and contrast in all conditions.

    Complementing the speed and optics is an Optical Image Stabilizer, which compensates for 3.5 stops of camera shake to better enable working handheld and in low-light situations. A ring-type USM and internal focusing mechanism also afford quick, quiet, and accurate autofocus performance, as well as full-time manual focus override. Additionally, this lens is weather-sealed for use in trying environmental conditions.

    Versatile telephoto zoom is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 112-320mm equivalent focal length range.
    Bright constant f/2.8 maximum aperture affords consistent performance throughout the zoom range and offers notable control over depth of field for working with selective focus techniques.
    One fluorite element and five ultra-low dispersion glass elements noticeably reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for high clarity and color fidelity.
    An Air Sphere Coating (ASC) has been applied to lens elements to reduce backlit flaring and ghosting for maintained light transmission and high contrast in strong lighting conditions.
    An Optical Image Stabilizer helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to 3.5 shutter speed stops to better enable working in low-light conditions and with slower shutter speeds. In addition to the single-shot standard IS mode, a second mode is also available that it optimized for panning.
    A ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), along with an internal focusing system, is employed to deliver fast, precise, and quiet autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override.
    Focus Limiter switch lets you constrain the focusing to two different ranges to suit different applications: 3.9'-infinity or 8.2'-infinity.
    Rounded eight-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
    A weather-resistant design protects the lens from dust and moisture to enable its use in inclement conditions. Additionally, fluorine coatings have also been applied to the front and rear lens elements for further protection against fingerprints and smudging.
    Removable rotating tripod collar is included and benefits working with the lens atop a tripod or monopod.
    Compatible with optional EF 1.4X and EF 2X teleconverters.

  • Luminesque 77mm Circular Polarizer and UV Slim PRO Filter Kit

    Combining two of the most useful filters available, Luminesque's 77mm Circular Polarizer and UV Slim PRO Filter Kit is well-suited to all forms of photography. Both filters are constructed from Schott optical glass and feature a 12-layer multi-coating for maintained clarity and image quality. Each filter is also set in an anodized aluminum filter ring, with the UV filter featuring a slim 3.4mm-thick profile to lessen the likelihood of vignetting with wide-angle lenses.

    The UV filter is a general use, clear filter that helps to absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight. It is also useful as a general protective filter to leave on lenses at all times in order to reduce dust and moisture from reaching the front lens element and to provide additional protection in case of accidental impacts. Its 12-layer multi-coating also helps to achieve 98.2% light transmission for faithful color reproduction and contrast.

    The circular polarizer filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. This results in a noticeable increase in the saturation of skies and foliage, as well as clearer imagery when photographing in hazy conditions. A circular polarizer differs from a linear polarizer in that it supports full use of a camera's autofocus and auto exposure functions.

    Luminesque PRO
    • Constructed from Schott optical glass for maintained image quality and clarity.
    • A 12-layer multi-coating helps to reduce surface reflections and glare for improved contrast and color neutrality.
    • Anodized aluminum filter rings feature a knurled top edge for easier installation and removal.
    UV Slim Filter
    • Absorbs UV light and reduces bluish cast of daylight for greater image clarity.
    • Clear filter provides no additional coloration or contrast, allowing you to pair this filter with others.
    • Works as general protection filter to reduce dust, moisture, and scratches from reaching the front lens element.
    • 12-layer multi-coating helps to realize a high light transmission rate of 98.2%.
    • Slim filter ring incorporates front threads and measures 3.4mm-thick to lessen the likelihood of vignetting when used on wide-angle lenses.
    Circular Polarizer Filter
    • Reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
    • Arrange and filter directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light allowing for the absorption of much of the light.
    • Lessens haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
    • Strongest effect when used at a 90° from the sun.

  • ZEISS Lens Cleaning Kit

    This Lens Cleaning Kit from ZEISS is a complete solution for cleaning valuable optics such as camera lenses, eyeglasses, telescopes, or spotting scopes.

    Both wet and dry cleaning tools are provided. For blowing dust off an optical surface, the air blaster can be used, while the retractable lipstick-style cleaning brush can dislodge more stubborn dirt or dust particles.

    When a thorough wet cleaning is required, a 1 oz bottle of cleaning fluid or ten, individually-wrapped pre-moistened lens wipes are available. Designed for single use, these wipes come in individual, disposable packets. They can be stored in a camera bag, glove compartment, studio, or lens case for whenever they may be needed.

    The non-abrasive, 7.1 x 7.1" microfiber cloth can be used after applying fluid or one of the pre-moistened wipes in order to complete the cleaning process and ensure that no streaks or spots remain. It can also be used on its own to effectively remove smudges.

    A fabric travel case is also included to hold the contents of the entire kit.

Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 reviews

EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM Lens is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Sharp I upgraded from the EF70-200mm f/2.8L USM so this is a big step forward, for me. First I am getting image stabilization and next, the new optics with the newest coatings. I find that the IS III lens focuses much faster on my 5DM4's and the results are much sharper. I did my own side-by-side comparison and found the results first-hand. The example photos were shot on two 5DMK4s side-by-side. The dock images were both f4.0, 1/1000 sec ISO 100. In the grill image, the left image in both is the f2.8 USM lens and the right is the new f2.8 IS MKIII lens. Shot in Av f2.8 ISO 100, USM was 1/800 sec, the IS III was 1/1250 sec

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My #2 multi-purpose lens I bought this lens to replace my Canon EF70-300mm f/4-5.6L is ii usm as I needed better low light performance, with more reach than my Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L usm. I have the Canon Ef 100-400mm f/4-5.6L is ii usm to cover the 200 - 400mm range. I am pleased with this lens' performance to date. Image quality is a step up from the 70-300L and focusing is very fast. I do wish there were a few more improvements from the predecessor Version "ii" [besides new coatings, & a new white paint job, everything else is unchanged] to go along with the version "iii" moniker, but I suppose it's difficult to improve on a masterpiece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it. Ive had this lens for about a week and have taken it on two different shoots. So far, I love it. Its shallow depth of field and long distance is exactly what I need for dramatic portraits and fashion shots. I was contemplating the 28-300 instead, but Im going to keep this lens and get the 2x extender for the distance for wildlife shots when Im traveling. I rented the 70-200 II and it was an excellent lens, but this one is noticeably clearer and more precise.
Date published: 2018-11-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Amazing! Very satisfied I use to own the previous version of this lens the mark ii but decided to upgrade to this one. I heard about a minor update to the glass coating and was curious to try it out since I shoot with a lot of back light and well his lens has me very impressed. This small update really makes slot of difference in my shots
Date published: 2018-09-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal I used the mark ii version for quite a while for work, and I recently upgraded to this for my personal kit. The mark iii handles back lit situations much better than the mark ii. To me, it also seems like this version focuses slightly quicker and has less focus breathing. If you have the mark ii, I dont see a drastic reason to upgrade, but if you dont have a lens of this type, its worth it spending the extra couple bucks to get the mark iii.
Date published: 2018-11-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just like the one it replaces The 70-200 III is strikingly similar to the 70-200 II. In fact, I've detected no change. If the IQ is better, I've not noticed.
Date published: 2018-09-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens for portrait or whatever Having discovered that one can easily carry heaver lenses with the Black Rapid strap I upgraded from an older F4 version of this lens. The F4 was a great lens but this one is worth the extra money.
Date published: 2018-10-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The King of Lens I Purchased my first 70-200 lens from B&H over 12 years ago. It has been my go to lens. The beauty of this lens is something many photographers share. Canon's lens are second to none.
