THE INDUSTRY-STANDARD TELEPHOTO ZOOM FOR PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS
A modern classic: this fast-aperture telephoto zoom lens is a favourite with professionals in all genres of photography, and many amateurs too. It’s now even better in bright light, and engineered to perform in the most challenging conditions.
Enjoy extra creative control
It’s easy to emphasise pin-sharp subjects against a silky smooth out-of-focus background, thanks to the lens’s wide f/2.8 maximum aperture and 8-bladed circular diaphragm. Even at wide apertures, image quality is good enough for the highest resolution EOS cameras.
Shoot with confidence in low-light conditions
Low light? No problem. A 3.5-stop Image Stabilizer compensates for blur due to camera shake. A fast f/2.8 maximum aperture – constant throughout the zoom range – lets in twice as much light as an f/4 lens.
Superb image quality throughout the zoom range
Fluorite and UD optics deliver high contrast and excellent resolution, capturing intricate detail whatever focal length you’re using. ASC and Super Spectra lens coatings combat ghosting and flare when shooting into the light.
Built to meet the demands of working professionals
Whether you’re shooting pitch-side action or twilight landscapes, Canon’s legendary L-series build quality gives you confidence to keep shooting whatever the weather. Fluorine-coated front and rear elements are easy to clean, while protective seals guard against dust and moisture.
Fast, near-silent autofocus
A ring-type USM motor focuses very quickly, letting you track fast-moving objects around the frame. You can make manual adjustments at any time, just by turning the focus ring.

One of the most versatile lenses available, the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM from Canon is an L-series telephoto zoom distinguished by its bright design and advanced optics. Ideal for a variety of subjects ranging from portraiture to sports, the fast constant f/2.8 maximum aperture excels in difficult lighting conditions and also offers increased control over depth of field for isolating subjects. The optical layout makes use of one fluorite element and five UD elements to suppress chromatic aberrations and color fringing in order to realize a high degree of clarity throughout the zoom range. An Air Sphere Coating is also featured, and works to reduce flare and ghosting for greater color fidelity and contrast in all conditions.
Complementing the speed and optics is an Optical Image Stabilizer, which compensates for 3.5 stops of camera shake to better enable working handheld and in low-light situations. A ring-type USM and internal focusing mechanism also afford quick, quiet, and accurate autofocus performance, as well as full-time manual focus override. Additionally, this lens is weather-sealed for use in trying environmental conditions.
