Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS 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
Characterized by its versatile zoom design, image stabilization, and relatively lightweight and compact design, the EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM is a Canon L-series lens 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.

I have a 6D and it is compatible with that body. My guess would be that it is compatible with a 1D but I think your best bet is to check the Canon Website.

Does this lens work with the Canon C100 Dual Pixel Upgrade so that it has auto focus?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Dual Pixel AF isn't speciific to any lens. The AF feature comes from information from the sensor and processor, so any standard EF mount will work great with the Dual Pixel AF feature, including the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L.

Does the IS make that much of a difference?
Asked by: Felice W.
For still subjects most certainly. It can afford you up to 4 shutter stops slower than what you could previously shoot handheld. If you are shooting active/moving subjects (and not panning) it will not capture the moving subject as still however.
