Telephoto lens boasting high image quality and carrying ease. With two UD-glass elements and rear focusing to correct aberrations, image delineation is extremely sharp. Background blur is also natural-looking, as was simulated by Canon. The lens comes with a dedicated, detachable hood.

Canon EF telephoto lens - 200 mm is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 22.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful tool that gets results With my 70-200 I found I spent 99% of the time shooting at 200mm. So I often opt for this little gem instead. It is smaller, lighter and easier to handhold for extended periods compared to the big 70-200. Yes, you give up some flexibility and features with the prime (zoom, IS, weather sealing). But to me it is a worthwhile trade-off.As a portrait lens the 200mm is brilliant. It provides a comfortable working distance from the subject. At f/2.8 there is great background separation and bokeh. Colors are rich and skin tone are smooth. As an action lens the 200mm performs like a champ indoors in low light for concerts and sports. AF is fast and accurate. It works with extenders for longer distance outdoor sports but I do prefer to use it alone.For landscape work the 200mm also is excellent. Edge to edge clarity is consistent with no noticeable distortion or vignetting at the edges.Contrast in the raw images from the 200mm is not as high some other tele lenses. Some light post-processing contrast boosting really makes colors pop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb lens with fast, accurate AF, crisp image I am using this lens mainly for sports and street events, such as parades, carnivals, and other festivals. The small size (as compared to 70-200) and black color make this less conspicuous than the white beasts. Build quality is excellent! The whole front barrel and focus ring (less rubber band) are metal. The hood mount/filter threads are metal. Only the lower half before the lens mount is composite plastics. My only gripe is the lack of weather sealing. I would probably give this 4.5 because of the lack of weather sealing.Image quality is fantastic. Although the 70-200 f/2.8 IS II is technically sharper, you would have a hard telling the difference. Colors and saturation are very very nice. Very little processing needs to be done with this lens.Auto focus is very fast, and very accurate! Shooting my son's soccer game, I easily had a keeper rate in the 90-95% range. The limiter switch makes focusing even faster.Overall,

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Soft, low contrast I own 8 canon prime L lenses and this is the least sharp, and has the poorest contrast of any of them. It's badly overdue for an upgrade. I know it's a bargain, but I am concerned with the best image quality. I shoot with a 5DSR, so sharpness is really put to the test. It also badly needs IS. It's compactness is a plus. It's very uncommon I dislike a canon lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value I love this lens. I've been shooting with my 70-200 f4 lens which is great, but I wanted a faster lens and this the 70-200 f2.8 was out of my price range. But I realized that when shooting the bride and groom at the alter I was always at the 200 focal length so I thought this lens could be a good alternative. I also bought an ND6 filter to allow me to open the lens in sunlight, but so I haven't had need for it. The one thing you have to be careful about is the temptation to use the 2.8 setting while photographing a couple where one person is slightly back from the other. The depth of field at 2.8 is very shallow and I've caught myself getting a slightly soft image on one of the subjects. But it's a great lens, tough as nails with beautiful optics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I bought it Haven't used the 70-200 personally, but don't feel that it will be better than this lens. Haven't seen a zoom that was better than a prime anyway. Great detail, color,andcontrast. True what was said about edge sharpnessSome may need zoom ability, but you can move or switch from horizontal to vertical to get around that. The price is great for the quality of the pictures you get.May find it a little heavy, but I had been without a camera for a while, so it took a little time to get used to shooting with it. Now, weight isn't a problem. But that heavyness is sign of solid construction.Compatible with extenders is a plus, although I haven't been using it with one due to shooting sports mostly at the moment with it.I don't use auto focus, so I actually had to get used to the sharpness so I could tell when something was or wasn't exactly in focus.But very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! I use this lens on an APS-C sensor EOS SL1 Rebel for landscape photography. Focal length after the 1.6 crop is 320mm on APS-C. This lens kills! Truly stellar long telephoto image quality. I passed on the 70-200 L zooms because I really only cared about the top end of the focal length range. The problem with the 70-200 zooms is that 200mm performance is mediocre. You need to back off the zoom for clean edge to edge sharp photos on those lenses. I wanted killer 200mm performance on APS-C and this lens delivers. Amazingly sharp edge to edge, great color, great contrast, very little distortion, and very little chromatic aberration. Edge to edge sharpness and chromatic aberration is even great at F/2.8. I mostly use this lens from F/8 to F/13 for long depth of field. I'm so happy with the photos I'm getting from this lens. This lens is a real sleeper also. It's very discrete in appearance for the long focal length due to its short length and black color. Don't forget the black accessary tripod mount ring. The model number is A II B. I found out that the B stands for black. The tripod mount ring model number was verified through Canon. If you're serious about long telephoto image quality on APS-C, this is the right tool for the job. It wont disappoint.
