More Information

Get up close and personal

  • Get closer to your subject with the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM telephoto zoom lens. Whether you're sitting in the audience at your son's school play or out in the woods on a bird-watching tour, you'll be able to zoom in and capture those great moments in time in crisp detail.
  • It sports a minimum focusing distance of 1.2m/3.9 ft. at all zoom settings, which is great for when you're in pretty close trying to get an extreme close-up of that white-crowned sparrow.

Awesome optics

  • Not a fan of lens flare or chromatic aberration? Of course not. This lens features 1 fluorite and 5 UD elements to help reduce these annoying effects and deliver increased optical quality. You'll have an even greater appreciation of those pictures you took of your son as he stole the show with a top-notch Peter Pan performance.
  • Go ahead and get creative with the circular aperture. You can focus in on that graceful hummingbird while defocusing the background to create a bokeh effect. The constant f/2.8 aperture creates a shallow depth of field to provide beautiful background blurs for truly stunning photos.

Smooth and steady

  • Don't have the steadiest of hands? Not to worry. This lens is equipped with a next-generation optical image stabilizer that offers up to 4 stops of correction at all focal lengths. So when you're having a bit of a chuckle at what's happening on stage, you can still get a crisp shot of your son as he belts out his lines.
  • Focus in quickly and silently on your subject using the inner focusing system with USM. It'll make sure you're not that person on the tour who scares away all the birds with one of those loud focusing systems. If your camera's autofocus isn't getting the job done, or you prefer to be totally hands-on, you can easily switch to the full-time manual focus.

Built to last

  • Its dust- and moisture-resistant design means it's equipped to handle challenging environments, always ready to accompany you on your next adventure. So don’t worry about the spray of that nearby waterfall while you're doing your best to snap a shot of those American Dippers.

This lens is good. But very heavy. It's very hard to cary arround. Went to buy this lens from Best Buy but when I checked the serial numbers all their lenses are 2 to 3 years old manufactured. Nothing newly manufactured. Very disappointed. Went to Mac bain camera all their lens are 4 to 6 months old only. They have lots of quantities. Best Buy is good for electronics but for camera mcbain is good.

The best 70-200 lens you can get. Sharp as a tack at f2.8. Stopping it down only increases the depth of field and not the sharpness. It doesn't get any better than this.

worth the price

takes very sharp images, great with bokeh, and super fast in focusing! built like a tank. just a bit heavy for my size 😂

Simply the best lens available

We've had this lens for 2 years. It's our primary working lens for weddings and event jobs. Whether indoors or out, it always delivers the finest results even in low light. Couple this with a 5D series or a 7D mk2 and you have an unbeatable system that will turns heads before during and after the photo shoot. I strongly recommend pairing this with the 24-70 f/2.8 Mk2 for the perfect system.
