Compact telephoto lens:
Two UD (ultra-low dispersion) glass elements, combined with rear focusing technology, enable the EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM to deliver extremely sharp images. Background blur appears smooth and natural.
The L-series is Canon’s flagship professional lens range, representing the best in precision-designed EF optics. L-series lenses combine superior performance with superlative handling, and are resistant to dust and moisture.
Large f/2.8 aperture:
A fast maximum aperture of f/2.8 provides outstanding speed for shooting in low light conditions, without the need for flash. The large aperture also provides fine control over depth of field.
A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting. Furthermore, full-time manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.
Super Spectra coating:
Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate colour balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and ghosting; a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera’s sensor.
Integration with E-TTL II flash metering:
The lens passes distance information back to a compatible EOS camera’s E-TTL II flash system to ensure optimal flash metering.
