EF 70-200mm f/4 IS USM Lens
Telephoto zoom lens
A lightweight professional telephoto zoom lens, the EF 70-200mm f/4 IS USM from Canon is a versatile choice suitable for everything from sports to portraiture. The fast f/4 maximum aperture creates pleasing background separation and lets in plenty of light, while a circular aperture diaphragm produces natural-looking out of focus highlights.
An artificial fluorite element and 2 UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) elements help achieve aberration-free images. The minimum focusing distance is 3.9' (1.2m) throughout its entire range of focal lengths. Internal zooming and focusing means that the lens' front element does not rotate.
Two-mode optical image stabilisation (IS) lets you shoot at shutter speeds several stops slower than would otherwise be possible, by providing the equivalent effect of a shutter speed 4 stops faster. Mode 2 is optimised for panning shots of moving subjects.
An Ultrasonic Motor ensures quick and silent autofocus, with full-time manual focus override capacity. A focus range limiting option also enables faster autofocus rates. Two focus distance ranges are available; 1.2m to infinity for closer subjects and 3m to infinity.
Finally, this lens is moisture and dust resistant, making it ready for use in even the harshest environments. It is light enough to not need a tripod collar, but for handling purposes there is an optional tripod collar available.
The EF 70-200mm f/4 IS USM lens comes with an E-67 II 67mm Lens Cap, Rear Lens Dust Cap, ET-74 Lens Hood and LP1224 Lens Case. It is fully compatible with the optional Extender EF 1.4x II and 2x II teleconverters (requires f/8 AF sensitivity with EF 2x II).
