Canon EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM Lens

200mm EF f/2.8L II USM Lens from Canon

The EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM is a part of Canon's professional L-series lens range. It features ring-type USM focusing and two UD elements for excellent sharpness and imaging performance. This lens also uses two ultra-low dispersion glass elements to ensure maximum image sharpness and accurate color fidelity. Canon's advanced ultrasonic autofocus motor (USM) and rear focusing design provide silent, smooth high speed autofocusing. Manual focus override allows you to fine tune focus in autofocus mode and focusing range limiter lets you adjust the range of focus to ensure faster autofocus speeds. Its minimum focus distance is 4.9'.

Compact telephoto lens
Two UD (ultra-low dispersion) glass elements, combined with rear focusing technology, enable the EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM to deliver extremely sharp images. Background blur appears smooth and natural.

L-series quality
The L-series is Canon's flagship professional lens range, representing the best in precision-designed EF optics. L-series lenses combine superior performance with superlative handling, and are resistant to dust and moisture.

Large f/2.8 aperture
A fast maximum aperture of f/2.8 provides outstanding speed for shooting in low light conditions, without the need for flash. The large aperture also provides fine control over depth of field.

Ultrasonic focusing
A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting. Furthermore, full-time manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.

Super Spectra coating
Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate colour balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and ghosting – a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera's sensor.

Integration with E-TTL II flash metering
The lens passes distance information back to a compatible EOS camera's E-TTL II flash system to ensure optimal flash metering.

Accessories
The EF 200mm f/2.8L USM lens comes supplied with a lens hood and a soft case.
