Canon EF 70-200mm F/2.8L IS III USM
The EF 70-200mm F/2.8l IS III USM is one of the most versatile lenses that Canon has released. It features a handful of updates from its predecessor. It’s perfect for sports, landscape, concerts and events. This is all thanks to its constant f/2.8 maximum aperture that can pull through even in the toughest of lighting conditions.

A surprising feature that we never knew that could work with telephoto zoom lenses such as this, which is special to this L-series, is its focus on portraiture. Its rounded eight-blade diaphragm delivers high contrast and outstanding resolution. It makes you feel confident that you will indeed take the perfect photo whenever and wherever you may be. Its smooth shallow depth-of-field provides a good separation of the subject from its background.

Key Features:

  • Optical Image Stabilizer up to 3.5 shutter speed stops of correction reducing camera shake
  • Circular eight-blade aperture that smoothly separates your subject from the background
  • Air Sphere Coating (ASC) helps reduce flaring and ghosting
  • Ultrasonic Motor (USM) engine provides silent auto focus in superior speeds
  • Weather-resistant design protects the lens from dust and moisture

Versatility is an important part for photographers. And the EF 70-200mm F/4L II USM will impress anyone with its versatile telephoto zoom capabilities. Its constant f/4 maximum aperture creates great colour and bokeh. It boasts of a 9-blade aperture that opens to a constant f/4 at all focal length ranges. It focuses very fast, quietly and accurately with a top notch Ultrasonic Motor (USM).

One of the key features of the EF 70-200mm F/4L IS II USM is the Super Spectra coating. It helps control flare and ghosting that’s perfect to create contrast and colour accuracy especially when you’re working in harsh lighting and backlit conditions.

Key Features:

  • Optical Image Stabilization is upgraded from 3 stops to 5 shutter speed stops
  • Features three IS modes suitable for any shooting situation
  • Super Spectra Coating technology and optimized lens element placement to minimise flaring and ghosting
  • Fluorine coating on both front and rear elements to reduce fingerprints and smudges
  • Circular nine-blade aperture beautifully separating your subject and background with smooth bokeh that is also ideal for portaits
  • Weather-resistant design protects the lens from dust and moisture
