Canon EF 200mm f/2L IS USM Lens
Key Features
  • EF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2 to f/32
  • Fluorite & Ultra-Low Dispersion Elements
  • Super Spectra Coating
An exceptionally fast medium telephoto prime, the EF 200mm f/2L IS USM is a Canon L-series lens that is ideal for portraiture as well as indoor sports shooting or other low-light, fast-motion applications. The large f/2 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting and also afford extensive control over depth of field for isolating subject matter using selective focus. Equally impressive, the optical design incorporates ultra-low dispersion glass and fluorite elements to significantly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for high clarity. Additionally, Super Spectra coatings have been applied to suppress lens flare and ghosting for high contrast and color neutrality when working in harsh lighting.

question

I mostly hand hold the camera. Can this lens work on the auto function and is it clear being hand held? I own the Mark lll
Asked by: Carolyn C.
I always handhold my 200 mm lens on a Mark III. No problem. It has an image stabilizer, but I also use a fast shutter speed. I put the camera into manual mode and the lens on auto mode, and then I crank the shutter to 2000 or 2500 and I use auto ISO. I use apertures of 2 to 6.7. It's a beautiful lens, and I can't use it enough for landscapes, wildlife, and people.

question

I'm confused by a drop in filter. What is this? Is there a filter that matches besides a polarizing filter? That's the only one I see listed. Do I need to buy the drop in kit?
Asked by: Anonymous
A lens like this does not have filter threads but does have an opening towards the back of the lens for a drop in filter. It comes with a holder for gelatin filters and it needs to be in the Lens at all times with or with you a gelatin filter.Canon makes a polarizing filter that fits without the included holder, http://bhpho.to/1dQ7bPyAnd they also make a holder that accepts most 52mm filters, http://bhpho.to/1dbubff . This is an example of some ND filters that are 52mm, http://bhpho.to/1dbwIpB
