The Canon 70-200mm f/4L IS II is a versatile, lightweight telephoto zoom designed for Canon full-frame cameras and an update to the original 70-200mm f/4L IS. Key features include:
Great for close-up shooting, portraiture, and sports photography
Advanced optical formula
Built-in optical image stabilization with three modes
Fast, accurate, and nearly silent autofocus
Versatile Telephoto Zoom. Optimized for full-frame cameras, the Canon 70-200mm f/4L IS II’s zoom range makes it an ideal choice for a range of applications, including portraiture, vacation photography, and sports photography. It has a 3.3-foot minimum focusing distance at all zoom settings, which is quite nice for close-up work. Its constant f/4 aperture provides consistent performance throughout the zoom range, and its rounded nine-blade diaphragm gives you great depth-of-field control for selective focusing. Using an APS-C camera? You’ll have a focal length equivalent to 112-320mm.
Advanced Optics. This lens’s fifteen-group/twenty-element optical formula includes one fluorite element and two Ultra Low Dispersion elements that minimize chromatic aberrations and color fringing while providing high clarity and color fidelity. Canon has applied a Super Spectra coating to the lens elements to further combat ghosting and flaring, even in harsh lighting.
Optical Image Stabilization. The 70-200 f/4’s built-in image stabilizer compensates for five stops of camera shake, so that you can shoot in lower light at slower shutter speeds without worry. It boasts three IS modes: a standard mode for single shots, a mode that only activates during the exposure, and a mode designed specifically for panning.
Ultrasonic Focusing Motor. This lens uses a ring-type Ultrasonic Motor to provide fast, accurate, and nearly silent autofocus performance for both still and video shooters. You also get full-time manual-focus override for precision adjustments. A focus-limiter switch constrains the lens’s focusing range for faster performance—you can select 3.3 feet to infinity or 9.8 feet to infinity.
High-Quality Build. This L-series 70-200 offers a more durable build than its predecessor, with improved weather sealing to help keep mother nature on the outside.
