Delivering an impressive performance across a large focal range, the Canon 70-200mm EF f/4 L IS II USM is powerful and versatile. The constant f/4 aperture is available across the entire zoom range which, combined with the three image stabilisation modes and USM autofocus system produces sharp results. Thanks to the full time manual focus and super spectra coating, photographers are equipped with control and flexibility for different shooting conditions. An advanced optical design ensures that the Canon lens delivers accurate colour reproduction and great contrast.

L Series Quality Lens

Perfect for professional quality photography, the 70-200mm f/4 joins Canon’s celebrated L Series range of lenses. Offering consistent excellence across the entire focal range, the lens boasts edge to edge sharpness and weather sealing to guard against dust and splashes, perfect for event and outdoor photography.

Handy Medium Telephoto Focal Range

Designed for a range of photographic styles, the versatile 70-200mm telephoto focal range is perfect for capturing candid nature shots and covering weddings or other events. The lens is well suited for full frame cameras but also offers a 112-320mm equivalent focal range on APS-C sensors. It is compatible with the 1.4x and 2x teleconverters, so you can further extend the focal length for an even greater reach.

Constant, Bright Aperture

A constant f/4 aperture allows photographers to keep the brightness consistent in every composition, and capture images with a beautifully shallow depth of field. This also ensures the lens retains a compact size for portability and convenience.

9-Bladed Circular Diaphragm

Make your subjects stand out against an ultra-smooth background thanks to the 9-bladed circular diaphragm. Pictures with shallow depths of field ensure your subjects remain sharp while producing a beautiful bokeh effect in the out-of-focus areas.

5 Stop Image Stabiliser

Take sharp handheld photos in low light conditions and low shutter speeds thanks to the 5 stop image stabilisation. Minimising hand shake and small bumps the lenses IS system allows photographers to have the confidence to shoot sharp details without tripods.

3 IS Modes

Three different modes allow you to control the type of stabilisation to suit a wide range of shooting conditions. Mode 1 is great for shooting static subjects while Mode 2 makes it easier to pan without losing detail in your moving subject. Finally, Mode 3 activates only when the shutter is fully pressed, perfect for fast action and sports photography.

Ring Type Ultrasonic Motor AF

Thanks to the internal ring type USM focussing system, the EF 70-200 mm lens offers action photographers a fast, reliable and quiet autofocus. Equipped with a simple construction, the AF is both power efficient and durable.

Full Time Manual Focus

Photographers are offered absolute compositional control via the full time manual focus. This allows you to make focus adjustments mechanically with pin-point precision by simply turning the large, ergonomic focus ring.

Internal Focus with Focus Range Limiter

Featuring an internal focus system, you can be confident that the length of the lens won’t change as you change focal length. Restricting the search range to either 99mm to infinity or 249mm to infinity, the focus range limiter reinforces the autofocus speed so you never miss a moment.

Sophisticated Optical Construction

Built with 20 glass elements in 15 groups, the optics of the Canon 70-200 are designed to ensure your photos are crisp and beautiful every time. The elements produce colours with low refraction and low dispersion to minimise chromatic aberration while also balancing the colour reproduction for accuracy and strong contrast.

Super Spectra Coating

Whether you’re out shooting in harsh sunlight or in backlit conditions, the Super Spectra Coating applied on each glass element reduces ghosting and flare for incrased vibrancy.

Sleek and Lightweight Build

At only 780g, the Canon EF 70-200 mm f4 L IS II USM is a great lens to carry on the go. Sturdy and lightweight, the streamlined design is also great for handheld operation so travelling photographers can stay on their feet without carry a tonne of gear.
