A zoom as good as a prime lens
One of the finest telephoto zoom lenses in the EF line, optically comparable to a prime lens. Four UD-glass elements to correct chromatic aberrations and multiple zoom groups allow internal focusing, resulting in high image quality throughout the zoom range. Compatible with Extender EF 1.4x and 2x.
Fast, constant maximum aperture
Shooting in low-light conditions is possible thanks to the lens' fast maximum aperture of f/2.8, which stays constant throughout the zoom range. Such an aperture also gives control over depth of field.
L (Luxury)-series quality
The L-series is Canon's flagship professional lens range, representing the best in precision-designed EF optics. L-series lenses combine superior performance with superlative handling, and are resistant to dust and moisture.
A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting. Furthermore, full-time manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.
Super Spectra coating
Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate colour balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and ghosting – a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera's sensor.
A lens hood and a soft case are included.

EF 70-200 canon lens
A superb piece of glass! Expensive but worth every penny, the F2.8 aperture allows low light shots and you can easily isolate subjects from the background.

Worth the cost
from Isle of Wight
I use it for maritime and aviation photography, as well as more general photography. It's well-made and the images are sharp.The only downside is that it is heavy, so a bag with this, my cameras and my 100-400 is a load to carry.It seems a bit pricey but for the performance is worth the cost.
Brilliant lens, oustanding sharpness

About Me Professional
I bought this lens for shooting at larger venues and went straight to a show at the O2 Arena, London with it. Was very impressed with the clear sharp images and how close you could get to the band members for some really intense shots, even in low light.Love this lens. Only one fault - it gets a little heavy shooting festivals all day.
Must have lens
Must have lens for those who are thinking going professional
I couldn't decide on the 2.8 or the 4 IS. I chose the 2.8 as I will be using the lens in a studio so slow shutter speeds won't be an issue. I love the lens, it is brilliant. yes it is heavy but it is to be expected as it is built solidly. It is sharp and quick to focus.

I have used this in the field for press work with a 1Ds Mark III and it is absolutely fantastic - beautiful colour rendition and detail. Pictures are sharp as a tack at f/2.8 and it is quick to focus. What I also love about the 70-200 f/2.8 is that it focuses internally - so the barrel of the lens does not shift. This gives you the impression that the lens is bullet proof. I currently own a 24-70 f/2.8L, and an 85 f/1.2L II and I must say that this is my favourite piece of glass out of all. I love the focal length as it offers so much versatility. The 70-200 f/2.8 was originally released back in 1995 and is probably still one of the best lenses in the world. It is suitable for many purposes so ticks all of the right boxes. (NOTE: I do not recommend removing the tripod mount as I had to send my first copy of the lens back to Wex for an exchange.)
