One of the finest telephoto lenses in the EOS system, with legendary sharpness, even used wide-open. A simply brilliant choice for available-light work for stills as well as HD video; its ability to throw backgrounds artfully out of focus has made it a favorite of videographers working with EOS cameras. Of course, pro still photographers prize this lens for its usefulness in fields as varied as wedding candids, fashion, portraits, and indoor sports. For industrial or business users, this may be just the ticket for tack-sharp images where you can't get really close, and need to shoot without flash or added lighting.

  • Super-smooth full-time manual focusing, makes it easy to "pull focus" for video users, or to make fine focus adjustments in still shooting – even if the lens is still in the AF mode
  • Excellent sharpness, contrast and optical performance, even at widest f/2.0 aperture
  • Equivalent to a 216mm lens when used on APS-C sensor cameras (EOS 7D, etc.), so it's even more effective for distant subjects in low light
  • Compatible with Canon's EF tele extenders, including latest "Version III" 1.4x and 2x extenders (full AF with all EOS bodies with any Canon extender)
