Product details

Experience exceptional long-range photographic quality with the Canon EF 70-200 mm f/4 USM IS Telephoto Zoom Lens.

The finest optics

Compact, manoeuvrable and low-mass, this telezoom lens features professional-standard L-series optical technology for outstanding optical performance and usability. These superior-performance optics are also resistant to moisture and dust for all-round shooting excellence.

You'll be able to use the maximum aperture of f/4 at all focal lengths, so your exposure settings won't fluctuate as the lens is zoomed across its full range.

With a virtually circular aperture diaphragm, the EF 70-200 mm Lens will render out-of-focus areas with a softer, more uniform feel whilst sharply realising foreground objects for amazing clarity and compelling depth.

Stable and lightweight

The EF 70-200 mm USM IS Telephoto Lens incorporates a four-stop image stabiliser (IS) to facilitate great handheld performance.

Permitting shutter speeds up to four stops slower than would otherwise be possible, you'll be able to shoot off a tripod without evident increases in image blur. This is effective in low light levels too, giving you drastically enhanced results and shooting options, such as shooting at 1/15 sec instead of 1/200 to maintain clarity and correct exposure.

What's more, you can set the IS system to correct for only unwanted vertical shake when panning horizontally.

A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives the autofocus system very rapidly and in virtual silence too, aiding focusing accuracy. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is precisely achieved without the risk of overshooting. There's also a full-time manual mode that makes it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode, keeping you in control.

The EF 70-200 mm Lens is just 172 mm long and weighs a mere 760 g, making it ideal for jobs where you need to travel light but shoot in high quality – considerably more portable than its f/2.8 sibling.

Excellent lens elements

Incorporating a single fluorite element and two UD (ultra-low dispersion glass) elements, the lens successfully suppresses secondary chromatic aberrations, giving you crisp, high-contrast photos free from distortion and colour fringes.

Superior colour balance and enhanced contrast are ensured by the use of Super Spectra coating, which also cut down flare and ghosting, common issues caused by light reflecting off the camera's sensor.

Improve the range and scope of your photography with the professional-grade Canon EF 70-200 mm f/4 USM IS Telephoto Zoom Lens.
