Improving upon one of the most celebrated lenses in the Canon EF line is no easy feat, but Canon has done just that. The all-new EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM increases the speed, performance and optical quality of the EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS USM while maintaining all of the characteristics that have made it a legend for professionals and advanced amateurs alike. The EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM features one fluorite and five UD elements for increased optical quality and reduced chromatic aberration. It has a minimum focusing distance of 1.2m/3.9 ft. at all zoom settings, which is useful for photographers in smaller spaces trying to get closer to a subject. It features a next-generation Optical Image Stabilizer, providing up to 4 stops of correction at all focal lengths. And as with all L-series lenses, the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM is dust- and moisture-resistant and designed for use in the challenging environments typical of rigorous professional use.
Advanced Lens Elements The Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM features redesigned optical elements, incorporating a fluorite element and a fifth UD element. The use of the high-performance fluorite element and five ultra-low dispersion (UD) elements drastically reduces chromatic aberration throughout the zoom range to provide better image quality with high contrast and resolution from edge to edge.
High-Speed Autofocus The Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM features a ring-type USM AF motor, which combines with a new high-speed CPU and an optimized focusing algorithm to make auto focusing both faster and quieter.
Optical Image Stabilizer An enhanced Image Stabilization mechanism offers up to four steps of compensate for shutter speeds, reducing the effect of image blur resulting from camera shake in challenging shooting environments.
Minimum focusing distance of 3.9 feet (1.2 meters) A reduced minimum focusing distance of 3.9 feet (1.2 meters) through the entire zoom range allows photographers to get closer to subjects and achieve sharp focus and tight crops, like capturing tighter portraiture shots in a small studio space.
Full-Time Manual Focus The full-time manual focus mechanism allows you to manually fine-tune focusing as soon as auto focus is complete, without having to switch to manual focusing mode.
Enhanced Durability Being an L-series lens, the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM features en enhanced magnesium alloy barrel design for added strength and durability with a minimal 20-gram increase in weight compared with the previous model. It also retains Canon's protective seals and fittings providing dust and water resistance for those photographers working in adverse conditions.
