Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

A truly versatile lens, the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM is a Canon L-series zoom spanning a flexible range of telephoto focal lengths. Beyond its portrait-length to medium tele range, this lens is also characterized by its bright f/2.8 constant maximum aperture, which affords notable control over depth of field and benefits working in challenging lighting conditions. Supporting the versatility is a sophisticated optical design, which utilizes four ultra-low dispersion elements to suppress color fringing and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range for high clarity. Also, a Super Spectra coating has been applied to help reduce lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color neutrality.

Complementing its optical assets, this 70-200mm f/2.8 also sports a ring-type USM and internal focusing mechanism for quick, quiet, and accurate autofocus performance, as well as full-time manual focus override. Additionally, a removable rotating tripod collar is included for stable use of the lens atop a tripod or monopod.

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.
Four ultra-low dispersion glass elements reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for high clarity and color fidelity.
Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize ghosting and flare for greater contrast and color neutrality when working in strong lighting conditions.
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: 4.9'-infinity or 9.8'-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.
As a member of the esteemed L-series, this lens is sealed against dust and moisture for working in inclement environmental conditions.
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.

    Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 reviews

    EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM Lens is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 694.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get This lens and you will be happy!!!! Such amazing lens i love the sharpness i tried to compare two lenses F2.8 and F4 and to tell you the truth F4 have much sharper images! perfect for portrait nature and any kind of photography!!! weights 3 times less then 2.8 and gives you much more than 2.8. less expensive and sharper!!! IS works amazingly good!!!Autofocus is really fast and lens by itself have metal housing sealed good from dust and water.Comes with case and hood. if you are thinking about purchasing 70-200mm get F4.0!!! i tried both and 4.0 is newer and better!!! By the way in Low light works perfect! add some Iso And You are good!!! TOTALLY LOVE THIS ONE!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never fails to impress I've owned this lens for about eight years and have used it for wedding photography, portraits and wildlife (with 2x extender). I've never been disappointed. It's ultra-sharp like a prime lens, even at the zoom extremes. For those who have never used an f/2.8 lens the extra 1-2 stops really make the difference in many situations. I've wondered what it would be like to upgrade to the IS version of this lens but I've never seriously been tempted as this is such a fabulous lens in its own right. It's also a bit of a 'backstage pass' - when you carry this lens with hood attached, people are so in awe they let you go wherever you want!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happiness in a tube I actually have owned both the IS and NON IS. I purchased the IS version first actually and ended using the IS probably less than ten percent of the time this lens was mounted on my camera. So when my IS version fell down the Grand Canyon, *FREAK* I opted for the non IS version as I rarely used IS anyway. As others have noted, I noticed a marginal increase in sharpness in the non IS version as there are less optical elements involved. Basically, I'm going to tell you what to do. Buy the non IS version, take the left over cash you saved and buy the 85mm 1.8 and the 50mm 1.4 primes. Then you'll be in real good shape ;) - Caleb

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall a great lens This is the second of this lens I've owned. Personally I find while the IS version may be sharper in places, the non-IS is sharper overall throughout the zoom range. I sold my original to upgrade to the IS and wasn't pleased with sharpness, so sold it and purchased another non-IS and am much more happy with it. Typical L build quality, solid feel, fast and quiet AF and quite durable. My only complaint is the design of the lens hood attachment, a problem I have with most of my L glass - after a while they get loose and won't stay put, but I know I'm tougher on equipment than the average or casual shooter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth all the lofty praise? Worth all of the lofty praise? ABSOLUTELY! This truly is photography's Platinum Standard - whether using digital or that old-fashioned stuff, film. I reserve the description "perfect" for almost everything; this lens is a rare exception. No questions whatsoever, absolutely tip-top marks for astonishing clarity, sharpness, colour & contrast; lightning-fast USM auto-focus. On an APS-C (1.6X) sensor body, this shoots like a 112-320mm f/4 lens. It is - basically - a "do it all" telephoto zoom. Considered the f/2.8 version but the added price for the one extra stop just wasn't worth it - to me. The added size & weight was also a factor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase I have wanted this lens for quite sometime but I will admit, the price was what was keeping me from making the purchase. After much thought and prayer I ordered it. What a great lens. Pictures are excellent. It's everything every review says it is. This is my first "L" series lens. It has been my main lens since I purchased it. I mainly photograph exterior landscape pictures and I am amazed at the quality of the pictures this lens produces. At 200mm, pictures are clear and sharp. If you are weighing the purchase as I did and if you can swing the price, you will not regret it at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A superb lens I've used this lens since 2000, when I upgraded from FD to EOS and digital. Despite numerous other Canon lens purchases, this is still hands down the sharpest lens in my kit. As I photographed for 30 years without IS, I knew how to get sharp images without its help. 16 years later, I do not regret its absence. I shoot lots of sports, most of it in poorly lit stadiums and gyms. The autofocus is fast and decisive, even under poor lighting conditions. Of course, a lot of the credit for this goes to the camera. This lens gets my highest recommendation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite and Most Reliable Lens I have had 70-200L lenses for the past 8 years starting with a f4L non-IS. Around 2 years ago I upgraded to the f4L IS version. I was highly impressed with the colors and sharpness on my original 70-200 but my IS copy makes those look dull and soft. The IS, despite being one of Canon's older IS technologies, does make a difference. As for the sharpness, it really can't be beat. My 70-200 is perfect proof as to why this range lens is regarded as one of Canon's best L zoom lenses on the market. I have found it to be sharpest between f/7.1-9, but have had no issues with the sharpness even when being used wide open at that f/4. I personally recommend this lens to anyone and everyone. If you don't have a 70-200 L in your gear bag, you really are missing out.
