Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM Lens

BH #CA702004LEF • MFR #2578A002
Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM Lens
Key Features
  • EF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range f/4 to f/32
  • One Fluorite Element and Two UD Elements
  • Super Spectra Coating
A flexible zoom distinguished by its relatively lightweight and compact design, the EF 70-200mm f/4L USM is a Canon L-series optic spanning a useful portrait-length to medium telephoto range. The constant f/4 maximum aperture allows you to maintain a consistent exposure throughout the zoom range and also contributes to the sleeker form factor when compared to other 70-200mm lenses. In regard to its optical performance, this lens employs one fluorite element and two ultra-low dispersion elements, which work in concert to suppress chromatic aberrations and color fringing for notable clarity and color accuracy. A Super Spectra coating has also been applied to control flare and ghosting for improved contrast when working in harsh lighting. Complementing the optical attributes, this lens also features a ring-type USM and internal focusing mechanism for quick, quiet, and accurate autofocus performance, as well as full-time manual focus override.

Is this lense good for wildlife?

Is this lense good for wildlife?
Asked by: Ricardo
It’s a good entry into wildlife although I would say you will find it to not give you the range you think it would. Something like a 150-600 will definitely give you more range and allow for more detailed tighter shots.

Are the optical elements in this lens identical ...

Are the optical elements in this lens identical to the f/4 IS version except for the IS feature?
Asked by: Terry
No. Different optical elements and the IS version is considered sharper although I have the non IS version and it is a very sharp lens.

does this fit on a 70D?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes. Just keep in mind the 1.6x crop factor using a camera that has the APC-S sized sensor (like your 70D). In terms of 35mm, this means the 70-200mm will have a 112-320mm perspective on your camera (not a bad thing at all).

How well does this pair with the Sigma 18-35mm for the bmpcc6k?
Asked by: Isaac
Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM Lens will complement your camera equipment since your current lens only offers a wide-angle of view. Please keep in mind that telephoto lenses have a more visual vibration compare to wide-angle lenses. Therefore we recommend some sort of stabilization system when using non-IS lenses on cinema cameras.

Does this Lens come with a USA warranty?
Asked by: Anonymous
In situations where B&H offers both a USA and an imported version of a product, we label each version clearly and explicitly. If a product does not have an indication either way, it is understood to be by default a USA product. In situations where only a USA version is offered it will not be labeled USA. This is a Canon USA lens.
