  1. Nice value lens

    Light weight (around 750g, which is only half weight of f/2.8 version 70-200) makes it easy to be carried for travelling. And, it's nice to have IS for my shaky hand :) Besides, it's only half of the price of f/2.8 IS version. Defiantly a good purchase! Read more

    Quite simply an excellent lens. As sharp as primes in its telephoto range, great contrast and colour, and state of the art IS. What it gives up in maximum aperture to the f2.8 version can be forgiven considering it's half the weight and 2/3 the cost. Read more

  • Manufacturer's Description

The EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM is a lightweight, compact L Series telephoto zoom lens with Image Stabilizer. The optical Image Stabilization in the new EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM lens provides up to an incredible four stops of shake correction-a first for Canon IS lenses. The use of fluorite UD lens elements provides excellent optical performance in terms of resolution and contrast. These features, together with its water-and dust-proof construction, provide both the performance and portability to meet user demands.
