Product Overview

Canon EF 70-200mm F4L IS II USM is a telephoto zoom lens for Canon EF-mount. It covers the full-frame image circle. Introduced by Canon in 2018, it has 20 elements in 15 groups.
Photographers will be pleased by the fact that the lens is internally-zooming, meaning that the barrel does not extend when the focal length is changed. This helps balance and weather sealing; it is also great for long-term durability, as there is less chance for moisture and dirt to get in. For incremental weathers, Canon is kind enough to include weather sealing.
As a telephoto zoom lens, the Canon EF 70-200mm F4L IS II USM is well suited for landscape and portrait photography, though its relatively dark maximum aperture limits its performance for indoor sports. Built-in image stabilization makes the lens easier to use handheld, and can be quite valuable for landscape works. Owners will also like the available tripod collar.
