About Canon 70-200mm F

Improving upon one of the most celebrated lenses in the Canon EF line is no easy feat, but Canon has done just that. The all-new EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM increases the speed, performance and optical quality of the EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS USM while maintaining all of the characteristics that have made it a legend for professionals and advanced amateurs alike. The EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM features one fluorite and five UD elements for increased optical quality and reduced chromatic aberration.

It has a minimum focusing distance of 1.2m/3.9 ft. at all zoom settings, which is useful for photographers in smaller spaces trying to get closer to a subject. It features a next-generation Optical Image Stabilizer, providing up to 4 stops of correction at all focal lengths.

And as with all L-series lenses, the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM is dust- and moisture-resistant and designed for use in the challenging environments typical of rigorous professional use.

from wichita, KS  -  Film Professional



This is a great lens


from Sun City West AZ

I use this mostly for portraits, landscapes It is supper sharp and very fast


The sharpest lens I currently own. One word "Amazing "


from Pebble Beach Ca

I never thought I'd purchase a lens this expensive but I did and it was money well spent. I get great pictures on my old 5D Mark II and looking forward on seeing what I can get on a new 5Ds/5Dsr

Great easy to use lens


from Mountain West

This is a great lens. Very easy to use. So far it has been used at soccer games, softball practice, and to take pictures of birds. Thanks Canon for creating such a nice and useful lens.


A Must Have


from Houma, LA  -  Wedding Photographer

I'm a prime shooter, but I have been wanting the 70-200 specifically for the range during weddings. Switching between primes in a quiet setting is undesirable, and much more prone to miss shots because of time spent switching lenses. There was no question to whether or not I'd get the 2.8 II with IS or any other lens - if I was making the purchase, I was buying this lens. There's a reason that you see this in nearly every professional's bag - it's a must have, tack sharp, and built like a tank.

Amazing & Speechless


from CT

it is an expensive lens, but it is worth the price. Using it on 6D & 7D cameras, the clarity and fine details are amazing. This lens is a beast, its heavy, and the quality is amazing. but ability to hold that f/2.8 throughout the focal length really is the seller....


Fast, sharp, reliable


from Kernville, CA

I mostly do landscape and outdoor photography, so sharpness, good color separation and tonality, and fast and accurate autofocus are all important. This lens has it all, at every focal length. It is as good as some macro lenses when used with an extension tube or the Canon close-up accessory lens. Birds in flight are no problem, and for that use the "mode 2" image stabilization is a blessing. Highly recommended, one of my 2 favorite lenses.


Simply Awesome


from Michigan

Been using the f4 version for about ten years, and after renting the f2.8 for an event fell in love with it. Sharp , great bokeh and procuces great images. Of course Adorama is the place to purchase all your photographic needs.


GREAT lens, HORRIBLE customer service!


from Phx, Az  -  Tech Savvy

The lens is fantastic, super clean, fast, and spot on. BUT, when I ordered the lens it came without the lens filter kit that was in the description. I called and Adorama said it was on back order for a few weeks and that they notified me, which I never got. So I asked if I got order a different filter kit and I would pay the difference, but their supervisors wouldn't do it. I called back twice before I found a supervisor that would let me pay the difference, except, instead of paying the $21 difference they made me pay $35 difference. It sucks that they will sacrifice thousands of dollars in future purchases for $14. I will never purchase from them again. Plus, I've spread the word to my photography friends and co-workers. The lens is great, the customer service SUCKS!
