Product Description

This ultra-fast telephoto, a new member of Canon legendary L-series lenses, has totally new optics to provide better image quality. It uses fluorite and UD lens elements for excellent chromatic aberration correction and consists of 17 elements in 12 groups. The built-in Optical Image Stabilizer gives it up to 4 stops of stabilization correction. The inner USM and optimized AF algorithms result in fast and quiet autofocusing, and the circular aperture can even produce beautiful out-of-focus images. This ultra-high-performance lens also improves its durability - better dust- and water-proofing. The EF 200mm f/2L IS USM is outstanding for many available-light applications, including indoor sports, theater work, fashion, and candids at events.

Pros:

Super fast auto focus
Speed, F/2 at 200mm!!
Unbelievable perfect 10 Images!!
This lens WILL get you attention
Otherworldly image stabilization!
Great build quality weather sealed
Fantastic perfect buttery smooth Bokeh
What a lens case! More like a high quality hard cover suitcase
The absolute best in-door concert and event lens ever created!

Cons:

Heavy and huge
This lens WILL get you attention
This is a lens cap; you gotta be kidding me! It won't fit with hood in ready to shoot position only in stored position!
Ok, what lens bag can I purchase to have this lens and my camera and the hood extended in a ready to shoot position?

Assembly:

I've always lusted after this lens and finally have my hands on one but there are a few things you don't think about. Probably like when you first win the Lotto and purchase your first Lamborghini there will be some details not in your dreams. The case was smaller then I expected but is very nice having very high quality aluminum build with lock and carrying handle (see photo I uploaded). The case even includes a set of two keys; not that locking it would do any good if the thief knew what was inside. The first thing you notice upon opening is the strange lens cap and hood assembly. The lens system takes some assembly to get ready to shoot each time since you have to remove this strange weird leather with a draw string lens cap, unscrew the hood attaching screw and reverse. If you buy and like to shoot at a moments notice you will want to purchase a large quality photo bag.

Mounting and setup:

Mounting the lens is almost a mount the camera to the lens affair but not quite as you can still do it either way.

In a word, this lens is "amazing"...not good, not great, but AMAZING. This lens is the culmination of Canons continued improvement in lens design and build quality.

As many know, this 200mm f2.0 replaces the ever popular f1.8 version. For the added .2 stop, you gain, IS, and a much lower weight lens due to a smaller overall glass diameter (granted, its still heavy, but much lighter than the 1.8) In addition to loosing .2 stops of light gathering ability, the lens supposedly looses another 1/3 of a stop, vs. the f1.8, due to the many element surfaces and/or the glass types. This info was compiled by a friend who tested the two side by side. So if shutter speed is your real need, and you always shoot on a tripod, the f1.8 might still be the better option, as the f2.0 version could cost you up to .6 stops of shutter speed if both are shot wide open. The f1.8 was also a truly remarkable design, legendary, as ebay prices reflect such. However, this f2.0 version still performs as a f2.0 lens in regards to shallow DOF, it simply acts as a f2.2 lens as it relates to shutter speed. So two separate issues.

As for image quality, as Canons MTF charts demonstrate, this lens is nearly diffraction limited at f2.0, which is quite an achievement considering f2.0 is considered ultra fast. The IS itself is a potential image degrader, due to the added elements required to stabilize the image. But through better technology, they managed to make this lens near perfect wide open even with IS on. This applies also to the 300mm f2.8 and some of the longer lenses. The 200mm is the shortest fl that has achieved this remarkable image quality wide open. Below this fl, the only close contender is the 135mm f2.0, which is good, but not in the league of the 200mm f2.0 and the longer fl's.

By randym on April 19, 2009
I do a lot of sports photography, and this is one of my favorite lenses for it. The Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS USM Super Telephoto Lens for Canon SLR Cameras is the classic sports photographer's lens, but it's extremely expensive, and so huge and heavy it's not practical to bring to many sporting events.

I had been using the Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM Telephoto Lens for Canon SLR Cameras instead, which is cheaper, lighter, and easier to get past stadium security.

But this lens is probably the most useful. It's smaller than the 300mm f/2.8L. (But not lighter; it weighs almost exactly the same. You will need a monopod if you're going to use it for any length of time.) The street price is a little higher, though the list price is lower. But the extra speed is great for night games or indoor sports. And you can use an extender and get roughly the equivalent of the 300mm f/2.8.

Excellent lens, and definitely one of my favorites.

Out of this world performance. Somewhat heavy so bring a tripod if you plan to shoot for more than an hour or two. Not all situations call for a 200mm prime but when it does the performance, bokeh and image quality sets you apart from almost anything.

Verified Purchase
I bought this lens after seeing images captured with it in a well known internet photography forum. Although the price made me think many times (twice wasn't enough) before I decided to purchase it, the performance of this lens has been worth every penny.
I have an 85mm f/1.2L II that performs impressively, focuses sharp and has an equally beautiful bokeh, but the AF focus speed coupled with its smooth creamy bokeh put this 200mm prime in a class of its own.
If you have the need for a sharp, fast focusing, prime lens that is sharp wide open and great in low light... this is the lens for you.
