Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM Lens
The Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS Series II merges performance and portability with its high-quality optics, versatile zoom range, compact lens design, and durable, weather-sealed body. Designed to supplement various types of photography, from fast-paced sports to portraiture, this lens offers a wide telephoto focal range and a constant f/4 maximum aperture, which ensures consistent low-light capabilities throughout all focal lengths. It also features nine rounded aperture blades for pleasing bokeh, as well as Canon’s Optical Image Stabilization technology, which offers five stops of camera shake correction and a new third mode that delivers active stabilization only during exposure to help conserve battery. Built into the dust- and water-resistant body is a ring-type ultrasonic motor (USM) with an internal focusing mechanism for swift, quiet, and accurate autofocus, as well as full-time manual focus override. Equipped with one fluorite and two ultra-low dispersion (UD) elements, color fringing and chromatic aberrations are corrected for enhanced images with remarkable clarity and detail. Its Super Spectra Coating technology also helps improve image quality, contrast, and color accuracy by reducing flare and ghosting when shooting in harsh lighting conditions.

telephoto zoom lens with Image Stabilizer. The optical Image
Stabilization in the new EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM lens provides up to an
incredible four stops of shake correction-a first for Canon IS lenses.
The use of fluorite UD lens elements provides excellent optical performance in terms of resolution and contrast. These features, together with its water-and dust-proof construction, provide both the performance and portability to meet user demands
A short minimum focusing distance of approx. 3.3 ft. helps expand the lens's operational range, enabling increased control of perspective and more dynamic close-ups than its predecessor lenses. Optimized lens coatings help reduce ghosting while a brilliant optical formula helps provide images of stunning sharpness, reduced glare and gorgeous color. All this and more in a lightweight, durable and weather-sealed L-Series lens body. Bring the EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM on your pursuit of your next great image.
Two UD Element for High Image Quality
The EF 70–200mm f/4L IS II USM delivers the stunning contrast, sharpness and color fidelity you'd expect from an L-Series lens. With 20 elements in 15 groups, it features a fluorite element that helps enhance optical quality and two low-dispersion UD elements that help correct chromatic aberration. These features help provide high image quality that's clear, detailed and eye-catching.
Highly Resistant to Dust and Water, and Improved Durability Even in Harsh conditions
Built to L-Series lens specifications, the EF 70–200mm f/4L IS II USM not only offers optical excellence but has been enhanced with a highly durable design to perform in even the most challenging environments. It delivers a dust- and water-resistant construction with seals around the mount, switches, zoom ring and more. The front and rear lens surfaces even feature a smudge-resistant fluorine coating that helps repel water and oil and can easily be cleaned with a dry cloth.
Three Image Stabilization Modes for Outstanding Results.
The EF 70–200mm f/4L IS II USM's 3 mode IS system offers more ways to counter movements that can hinder you from getting your best shots. It's easy to access with a dedicated Stabilizer Mode switch directly on the lens barrel. Mode 1 is ideal for handheld exposures of subjects that remain still, while Mode 2 corrects unwanted camera shake when you're panning to follow a moving subject. Mode 3 prevents actual stabilization from happening until the instant the shutter button is fully pressed. This means the viewfinder is not stabilized between shots, making it easier for some users to maintain composition with erratically moving subjects.
Optimized Lens Placement and Coating Minimize Chosting and Flare
By reducing ghosting and lens flare, the EF 70–200mm f/4L IS II USM can help create clear and memorable images. With intelligently placed elements, UD and fluorite lenses and the use of Super Spectra coatings, the EF 70–200mm f/4L IS II USM better counters the effects of backlighting, shiny surfaces and more to help eliminate distractions from your subject.
Circular Aperture ( 9 blades ) for beautiful, Soft Backgrounds.
Adding an additional aperture blade, the EF 70–200mm f/4L IS II USM features a 9-blade, circular aperture to help create gorgeous, evocative out-of-focus areas and soft backgrounds. With an incredible level of control over background blur, the 9-blade circular aperture helps create intimacy and intensity in both photos and videos for impactful results
