Aimed squarely at indoor sports shooters, this fast 200mm prime L-series lens continues the traditions of excellence in the Canon lens range. Built tough to withstand the rigours of a professional use, the lens incorporates complete dust and moisture seals to keep out the elements whatever the weather.
A new 5-stop Image Stabiliser system ensures the lens is hand-holdable at very slow shutter speeds to make sure you get the shot when the light levels fall. Combined with the fast f/2 maximum aperture you can shoot in low light and still achieve fast enough shutter speeds without having to resort to using flash.
The large maximum aperture also offers fine control over depth-of-field for candid portrait photography to help the subject stand out from the background. With the circular aperture diaphragm, background blur is smooth and consistent.
An optical construction incorporating both fluorite and ultra-low dispersion (UD) glass controls chromatic aberrations, and helps eliminate secondary spectrum to provide sharp, high contrast images.
To make sure you can keep up with the action, a Ring USM autofocus motor has been used with full manual over-ride allowing full-time manual focus. The addition of a focus preset switch allows you to preset a focus distance and move to it instantly no matter where you are in the focus range.
Compatible with both the Extender EF1.4xII and Extender EF2xII you can achieve a 280mm f/2.8 or 400mm f/4 lens which still retains autofocus and image stabilisation.
