Canon EF 200mm f/2L IS USM Lens Review

Canon EF 200mm F2 L IS USM (2)

A professional-grade telephoto lens, which sports a fast maximum aperture of f/2, image stabilisation and silent focusing with full-time manual focus override. This is quite a specialised lens, costing around £4600, so we'll take a close look at how it performs in this review.

This lens has quite a reputation to live up to, with it's predecessor, the EF 200mm f/1.8 USM being touted as the sharpest lens available for 35mm cameras, scoring 4.9 out of five on the old Photodo website rating system. Therefore its predecessor often sells for silly money on auction websites, even in dubious condition even though it has long since been discontinued in favour of this newer optic.
