EF 200mm f/2L IS USM
The EF 200mm f/2.0L IS is one of the world's finest fast telephoto lenses, and the ultimate choice for available-light work where subjects remain approachable by the photographer. Its ability to isolate a subject with tack-sharp focus and a beautifully out-of-focus background makes it a favorite of professional HD video shooters. This is a big and heavy lens, but well-balanced and most users find it can be hand-held for still images, aided by its excellent Image Stabilization. The IS system provides up to 4 stops of effective correction for camera shake.
- Superb sharpness, contrast and overall optical performance: an ideal lens for critical professional users
- Beautiful lens for any available-light application, from candid photos at weddings to news photojournalism; often used by fashion shooters, even outdoors, for its wonderful sharpness and background "bokeh"
- Superb for HD video applications; combined with EOS HD-SLR's excellent low-light performance, this lens makes possible dimly-lit shots that might require a full crew and lots of added lighting if recording with traditional pro video equipment
- Fully compatible with Canon's EF 1.4x (280mm f/2.8 equivalent) and EF 2x (400mm f/4 equivalent) tele extenders, including latest Version III extenders
