High-performance, L-series telephoto zoom lens combining lightweight and compactness with an f/4 maximum aperture. Inner focusing and the ring USM enable quick and quiet autofocusing. Also, a circular polarizing filter can be attached and used without difficulty because the front lens element does not rotate during focusing. The tripod collar (sold separately) is the same one used with the EF 300mm f/4L USM.

Product Reviews
Canon EF zoom lens 70-200mm is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I have had this lens for a couple of months and haven't used it that much as yet due to surgery a few weeks ago. However I did test it at all focal lengths and all apertures and apart from the fact that the blurring of the background varied with the aperture, the subject was as sharp as a razor in every frame!I used it handheld for an equestrian event yesterday and just about every shot was razor sharp (remembering to never lower the speed to less than the focal length of the lens). I just left it on 250sec.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first L lens I have always wanted an L lens especially in a zoom. I chose a lower priced one without image stabilization. I really like it. The optics are vivid sharp and the skin tones are right on the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great first "L" lens I have had this lens for over 6 months and have taken a few thousands pics so far. First, this is not a small lens and does not have IS. So, unless it is really bright (plenty of lighting) then a tripod is a must. However, it is "L" series glass and there just isn't anything like it. Hand held in full sunlight I got some exceptional pics. Also, with a monopod I was able to get some really good action shots of softball games. All in all, if you have the money get the IS version (or better yet get the f2.8 IS version) but if you are on a budget like me, this is a great addition to your arsenal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens I have this lens and just love it. I do not miss not having image stabilization. It sounds weird, but it just feels so well balanced on my camera (either my 70d or the 6d). It is one of the cheaper lenses I have but it is probably my favorite. Its great for portraits and I even drag it around for general travel photography when I', using the 6d.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens I'm only 14 and I got this lens for Christmas. I couldn't be happier!!! It's a great lens but not the best aperture range [only going down to 4]. But still a great lens!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting, sharp, powerful*** Interestingly enough, I got this lens by accident. My girlfreind was going through her stuff after a divorce settlement and it was laying underneath a lot of her belongings. I have recently gotten into photography on a more serious side but lacked a lot of great equipment. This is definitely far better than any lens Ive used. It is a little long but its impressive to look at. The clarity of the shots is impressive. You have to stay still or use a tripod when in full zoom or the shake is too great. I have captured wonderful phtos of our cat, at a distance of course, that rival my other lens.I simply love it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens at a great price Absolutely love this lens. It's my first "L" lens and it works flawlessly. Image quality is superb with minimal vignetting around the edges which is easily corrected in post processing. The auto focus is fast, accurate and quiet. Even at f4 we can still get a nice blurry background but our subject is still in precise focus. It also has great contrast and clarity and the images taken with it are just spectacular!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Historic Telephoto Zoom Masterpiece The Canon 70-200mm F/4 USM is quite an amazing telephoto zoom lens. I wanted to wait a while before writing a review, but I must say that I am thoroughly impressed with this lens. Although this version is an older model with no IS, it still performs very well and I am always impressed with the quality of my photography. This was my first telephoto lens and I knew I had to own one since the day I saw it at an electronic store through the glass display window; I was in awe!One of the main purposes of the 70-200mm F/4 is for medium range photography where subjects can be shot at a distance. The minimal focal distance already starts at 70mm, so more than likely indoor or close quarter photography may not by the best environment for this lens. Obtaining a shallow depth of field at maximum aperture F/4 produces really sharp results. The Ultra Sonic Motor (USM) helps the lens' Auto Focus (AF) operate very fast and quiet simultaneously; other standard models tend to make louder AF sounds and may struggle depending on what the camera is attempting to identify as the subject. If you struggle with the AF, MF is always to secondary option to manually control your own shots. I suggest using a lens filter to protect lens glass to prevent or eliminate scratches or worse. The 1.4x and 2x tele-converters can be used with this lens, I have the 2x version already. Even at 135mm to 200mm (which I hear is really 216mm to 320mm for my Rebel T5 APS-C 1.6x crop factor sensor), any perceived distortion is not even noticeable to the naked eye. However, I will admit that once the focal length maxes out at 200mm, hand held camera shake or other instabilities can blur potentially great photos. I do understand why IS was built into the newer models. Compared to other telephoto lens, the 70-200mm is very lightweight, but still on the long side, which I don't mind. The body is very well built and has a stunning cream white, black and red ring design, which looks very attractive, even to to onlookers.I do truly love the 70-200mm F/4 lens and while most of my environments that I take photos in do not warrant its use, it feels 'new' when I do I have the opportunity to use take great shots with it. By today's standard, the 70-200mm F/4 is quite affordable as well. Truly a masterpiece and most owners will attest to its quality craftsmanship and continuous dynamic results.
