Catechism EF 70–200mm f/2.8L IS Ii USM with lens hood

The
EF seventy–200mm lenses
are a group of telephoto zoom total-frame lenses fabricated by Canon. The lenses have an EF mount to work with the EOS line of cameras.

The lens comes in seven different versions, all of which have fixed maximum aperture at all focal lengths, and are L-serial lenses.

  • f/4L USM[one]
    [ii]
  • f/4L IS USM[3]
    [4]
    [5]
  • f/4L IS II USM[6]
  • f/2.8L USM[seven]
    [viii]
  • f/2.8L IS USM
  • f/ii.8L IS Ii USM[9]
    [x]
  • f/2.8L IS III USM[11]

The latest iterations of both the f/4 and the f/ii.8 variants were announced on 7 June 2018. The f/four is currently nether production and the original MSRP was increased from US$1,299 to US$1,499. In March 2021, it was reported that Catechism had decided to discontinue the lens.

Mutual fields of awarding

[edit]

The f/4 USM is popular amidst weight-sensitive landscape photographers and hobbyists who want L lens quality without spending thousands of dollars. The f/two.8 versions are pop among event photographers and photojournalists where the lens’s lower calorie-free capabilities are required. Some portrait photographers also prefer this lens considering the fast aperture produces more background blur and bokeh.

The non-IS f/two.viii version was released in 1995 and replaced the EF 80–200mm f/2.8L. The lenses utilize nine- or viii-bladed, circular diaphragms which maintain a well-nigh circular discontinuity when stopped downwards. The f/2.viii and f/iv.0 image-stabilized versions also feature weather sealing when mated to a weather-sealed photographic camera to such as the Canon EOS 1D-serial bodies.[12]
[13]
These lenses are compatible with the Canon Extender EF teleconverters. Due to its internal zooming mechanism, the lens does not creep or zoom when pointed downward.

35-mm-equivalent focal lengths on cameras with smaller sensors

[edit]

When used with a Canon APS-C (1.6x crop) DSLR camera or APS-H (ane.3x crop), the 35-mm-equivalent focal lengths of these lenses are 112–320mm on an APS-C sensor and 91–260mm on an APS-H sensor. This is due to the crop factor inherent with APS-C or APS-H (crop) sensor digital SLR cameras.

Switches

[edit]

A frequently pointed-out problem with this lens is the placement of the IS and AF switches, which brand them prone to accidental flipping during paw-held shooting. Some photographers solve this by covering the buttons with a piece of gaffer tape. In recognition of this consequence, starting with the f/4L IS USM model and f/2.8L IS II USM lens, Catechism uses switches designed to reduce the incidence of adventitious switch activation.[fourteen]
