Canon EF 70-200mm f2.8L IS II USM

Outstanding results, excellent functionality.




While the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM may be known as a sports photography lens, it performs exceptionally well in a wide variety of situations. From wedding and portrait photography, to landscape and wildlife photography, this telephoto lens does it all – and it does it well. Featuring superior build quality and an array of features, this impressive lens is an essential part of any serious photographer’s kit. With extremely well controlled vignetting, chromatic aberration and flare, optical performance is superb, delivering sharpness all the way out to its full frame corners at all focal lengths. Image Stabilisation allows you to capture incredibly sharp images with a handheld camera, providing a stable viewfinder to make framing easier, while the ring-type USM autofocus is very fast, very accurate and near silent. For fast-moving action, the AI Servo AF tracks and focuses your subject, so you never miss a second.
