Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM Telephoto Zoom Lens

The professional photographer's telezoom lens.

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.

A zoom as good as a prime lens
One of the finest telephoto zoom lenses in the EF line, optically comparable to a prime lens. Four UD-glass elements to correct chromatic aberrations and multiple zoom groups allow internal focusing, resulting in high image quality throughout the zoom range. Compatible with Extender EF 1.4x and 2x.

Fast, constant maximum aperture
Shooting in low-light conditions is possible thanks to the lens' fast maximum aperture of f/2.8, which stays constant throughout the zoom range. Such an aperture also gives control over depth of field.

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.

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.

Accessories
A lens hood and a soft case are included.
