Product Description

Product Description


The Canon EF 200mm f/2.8 L II USM lens uses a rear-focus telephoto optical design with two ultralow-dispersion (UD) glass elements to ensure maximum image sharpness and accurate color fidelity. The two UD glass elements, combined with the rear focusing, correct aberrations to give you extremely sharp and clear images.

This lens is perfectly suited for Canon's EOS system cameras--placing special emphasis on its manual focusing capability--which have a wide rubber focusing ring that allows you to make easy adjustments. The ultrasonic motor (USM) and rear focusing design allow for silent, high-speed autofocus and full-time manual focus. Because of its full compatibility with 1.4x and 2x EF extenders, you have the option of added focusing versatility.

Features
  • EF mount; telephoto lens
  • Ultra-low Dispersion glass with Fluorite elements; inner focusing ring; full-time manual focus 200mm focal length
  • f/2.8 maximum aperture
  • Micro UltraSonic Motor (USM)

From the Manufacturer

Offering a long focal length that lets you effectively compress the distance between the subject and camera, the lens lets you easily capture the details and feeling of a far-off scene. The lens is distinguished by two ultra-low-dispersion (UD) glass elements and a rear focusing system to correct aberrations, producing extremely sharp images. The lens also offers a natural-looking background blur and comes with a dedicated, detachable hood. The lens carries a one-year warranty.

  • Focal length: 200mm
  • Maximum aperture: f/2.8
  • Lens construction: 9 elements in 7 groups
  • Diagonal angle of view: 12 degrees
  • Focus adjustment: Rear focusing system with USM
  • Closest focusing distance: 4.9 feet
  • Filter size: 72mm
  • Dimensions: 3.3 inches in diameter, 5.4 inches long
  • Weight: 1.7 pounds
Lighter by more than 1.2 pounds (545g) than the 70-200 f/2.8L zoom lens, this fast telephoto lens is a perfect alternative for low-light shooting or just reducing weight in the gadget bag. Two UD-glass elements and internal rear-group focusing are among its optical highlights, and itís fully compatible with Canonís EF 1.4x II and 2x II tele extenders. A detachable hood is included, and Tripod Ring A (B) is available as an accessory.

Long and Fast
A telephoto lens is essential to any serious photographer. For sports action, you will need a fast shutter speed and a long focal length. A large maximum aperture allows a faster shutter speed. In this telephoto lens line-up, the focal lengths range from 135mm to 300mm. If you want compactness, choose a lens with a smaller maximum aperture.

By D. Alexander TOP 500 REVIEWER on January 29, 2008
The grand appeal of this prime is that offers the telephoto reach and fast f/2.8 aperture of Canon's 70-200/2.8 professional lenses, but at far less cost and size. In practical terms, the 200/2.8 is fast enough to shoot nighttime football games that would have slower f/5.6 consumer zooms struggling to reign in motion blur.

Unlike consumer zooms, it also takes well to a 1.4X teleconverter, giving the equivalent of 280mm at f/4. The USM autofocus system is quick, silent, and sure in almost any lighting, and because this 200/2.8 is essentially a longer version of Canon's legendary 135/2, it's plenty sharp all the way from f/2.8. Finally, because it's small and black, the security at sporting venues is far more likely to let you take it inside.

It's not all roses though. 200mm on a 1.6X crop body is a 320mm equivalent in view angle. That's a lot of lens to handhold without stabilization. Pure sharpness doesn't stand for much when the whole frame is blurred by handshake. Despite the fast f/2.8 aperture, it takes a lot of light to keep the shutter speeds up, and this lens isn't all that forgiving below 1/400; good technique and proper bracing are essential. My copy suffers further from color fringing around highlights and loss of contrast in sunlight to a greater extent than any other lens that I own. Shooting into the sun, or with the sun just outside the frame, is not a forte.

If you want versatility, there are also better choices than the 200/2.8. Framing options are limited, and you'll rarely find the composition afforded by 200mm exactly matches what you intended. While the 70-200/2.8 series are no stronger optically than this lens, they'll get the shot every time purely by the ability to track an object at 70mm and rapidly zoom to 200mm to take the picture.

I use my 200 almost exclusively for astrophotography, which places the highest demands on optical performance - albeit at infinity. The 200 performs extremely well in this capacity. At f4 star images are absolutely crisp corner to corner on my 40D, and the lens is quite usable wide open (f2.8). I've never had a moment's regret about owning this lens, which I've had for about 3 years.

Canon L lenses are known for their great optics and priceyness. This fast tele is an excellent value. Some pictures I took at the Phoenix zoo with this lens are superb. Use your tripod and get tack-sharp images. The only thing that would improve this lens would be the addition of the image stabilizion feature found on a few Canon optics. Of course, the advantage of large aperature lenses is that you can set a fast shutter speed and still have enough light for a shot. This lens is surprisingly compact, (as long focal length teles go). The autofocus is very fast and quiet. Comes with a hood, too.

This lens is Canon's biggest bargain and a rather well kept secret. The 200 f2.8 L lens is an amazing value and has the "red ring", Canon's professional rating. One shoot will convince you of it's value.
Photos taken with this lens are extremely sharp, with colors rich and deep; it takes the 1.4x teleconverter well, adding range. The lens takes sharpening extremely well. I find it easy to handhold, and rarely use my tripod. In comparison, the Canon 70-200 f2.8 was simply impossible for me to use without a tripod; it's size and weight defeated me regardless of the IS. A direct comparison of shots between the smaller 200 f2.8 and the large 70-200 showed the prime in my case to always be superior.
Although the zoom lens are a convenience I personally find I am always at the long end of the telephoto within the 70-200 range. I own 9 Canon lens, owned the 70-200 f2.8 IS L and sold it, keeping this lens in its place. The advantages are many - I find it much sharper, easier to handhold than the white lens at 200, it is possible to take it to affairs where they will not allow the big white lens, and much, much, MUCH less conspicuous. My husband uses the camera on autofocus only, and his shots are outstanding with this lens. He is an artist and has a great eye; matched with this lens he gets what he wants.
The price is outstanding for such high quality;this amazing lens is a genuine bargain in today's camera world. Let's hope that Canon doesn't wise up and price this according to it's quality. Have owned it for several years, definitely a keeper. Buy it - you will not regret it.

I got this lens today and, in spite of pouring Spring rain, I had to test it out. I can only say, "WOW"!!!
I was looking for something to take mostly dog photos while they were farther away from me than I could cover with my 85mm. I don't like zooms since I can't seem to get the crispness I am looking for. The reviews WERE great and, although for a hobbist photographer it was a bit pricey, I decided you get what you pay for so I ordered it.
I started indoors and was able to get some great shots but my colors were a bit too saturated. Easy enough to fix!!!
Finally, it stopped pouring and was just raining so I took it outside. Once I figured out my depth of field, I had a ball!!!
The lighting was terrible, it was freezing, and I was hand holding so I used the automatic sport setting figuring it would be fast enough to help with my hand shake. This lens IS heavy, but can be hand held with decent results. If you can brace yourself against a tree or something, it is even better.
Sadly, I haven't learned enough to trust my use of manual settings so I take tons of photos at different settings and usually end up with a few that are what I was looking for. This lens made finding a few keepers way too easy!!!
Colors were impeccible, focus was right on, although I did use a bit of manual fine tuning due to the poor lighting, and the bokeh was superb! I was amazed at how quiet the focus is, and how little searching was done, even with the poor lighting and mist.
Just for a test, I popped on my Canon 55 - 250mm is lens, set it at 200mm, and tried the same shots. Obviously, it was NOT a fair test as I would never chose that lens with the poor weather conditions, but it DID make me way more impressed with the 200mm!!!
I can't wait for a nicer day to REALLY test it out!!! Admittedly, it is a relatively inexpensive "L" lens, but it is way, way better than what I have been shooting with and I am happy that I made the step up.
