EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM
For cost-conscious users still wanting a truly professional L-series tele zoom, the original Canon EF 70–200mm f/2.8L may be the answer. For years, this lens satisfied demanding pros and critical amateur enthusiasts alike with its available-light capabilities and image quality. Especially for photojournalists and others who anticipate shooting live, moving subjects in low light (such as indoor sports) at fast shutter speeds, this lens becomes a very compelling alternative to other similarly-priced options. Like every white-barreled EF 70–200mm lens, it's compatible with all Canon EF 1.4x and 2x tele extenders.
- Canon's least-expensive L-series f/2.8 tele zoom option: still a great choice for studio work, photojournalism, indoor sports, and many other applications
- Proven record of reliability, durability and sharpness in the hands of demanding pro users
- Even more effective telephoto power when used on smaller-sensor digitial SLR bodies: 90–260mm (equivalent) when used on any EOS-1D model, and 112–320mm (equivalent) with APS-C sensor cameras (EOS 7D, etc.)
- Lower price makes it especially interesting for institutional and business buyers, who may be purchasing multiple lenses at one time
