Canon's L Series lenses are world-renowned for their high-performance optics and rugged reliability. You'll really see the difference that pro-quality glass makes with this 70-200mm f/2.8 telephoto zoom. Fans of indoor sports and wildlife photography will appreciate the exceptional light-gathering ability, razor-sharp images, and fast, silent autofocus this versatile lens offers.

The 70-200mm focal range and large maximum aperture also make this lens ideal for capturing stunning portraits. You can softly blur unnecessary background details, while making your crisply focused subject pop from the photo. And unlike many lenses whose aperture and brightness decrease as you zoom closer to your subject, this Canon features a maximum aperture of f/2.8 which remains constant throughout the zoom range. That means your images stay bright as you zero in, and your exposure values remain unchanged (a very handy feature when shooting manually).

Features

Overview: The Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM lens is a telephoto zoom lens for Canon EOS cameras. The inner focusing system and USM (ultrasonic motor) gives you faster, more precise auto focusing.

Focus Distance Range: You can set the focusing distance to one of two ranges. If you are focusing on items 4.9 feet away or more, you can set the focusing distance range to 4.9' to infinity. If you will be shooting objects beyond 9.8 feet, the range can be switched to 9.8' to infinity for faster auto focusing.

Focusing Ring: Regardless of whether you're in manual or auto focus mode, the full-time focusing ring always works. This means you can auto focus on a subject, but manually change the focus by turning the focusing ring.

Focus Mode Switch: You can switch between Auto Focus and Manual Focus using the two-way AF/MF switch on the barrel of the lens.

Tripod Mounting Ring: The lens comes with the Tripod Mount Ring B (W) attached. Mounting the lens to the tripod instead of the camera provides better balance, and reduces strain on the camera's tripod threads due to the weight of the lens. The ring can be loosened by turning the lock knob, allowing it to rotate as needed to fit a particular camera model, or switching between vertical and horizontal positions. It can also be removed if desired.

Optional Extenders: The EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM lens is compatible with optional Canon extenders. The aperture value and focal lengths with the extenders are as follows:

  • EF1.4x II: f/4, 98-280mm
  • EF2x II: f/5.6, 140-400mm

Optional Filters: The lens has a 77mm mounting thread on the front of lens for attaching screw-on type filters.

Specifications:

  • Focal Length/Aperture: 70-200 mm f/2.8
  • Lens Construction: 18 elements in 15 groups (including 4 UD-glass elements)
  • Maximum Aperture: f/2.8 (constant)
  • Minimum Aperture: f/32
  • Angle of View:
    • Diagonal: 34° - 12°
    • Vertical: 19°30' - 7°
