A truly professional L-series telephoto zoom lens, with reduced size and weight for applications where portability is important. Superb optically, it combines a Fluorite element with two UD-glass elements for outstanding contrast and performance.

It’s also compatible with EF Extenders 1.4x II and 2x II, and accepts an optional accessory tripod collar.

L-Series Quality

The lens embodies Canon's highest standards of L-series optics, build quality, reliability and operability. Robust construction includes dust and moisture resistant seals.


With a length of just 172mm and weighing only 760g, the EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM is ideal for assignments where there is a need to travel light.

Fixed Aperture

The aperture remains constant through the full focal length range, allowing you to zoom from approximately 27-88mm (35 mm equivalent).

Fluorite and UD Elements

Optimum visual performance, the lens incorporates Fluorite and UD (ultra-low dispersion) elements to minimise chromatic aberrations.

Super Spectra Coating

Ensure accurate colour balance and high contrast, suppress flare and ghosting by absorbing light that might be reflected off internal lens elements and image sensor.
