Combining superb functionality and remarkable image quality, the EF 70-200mm f/4L USM is everything you need in a telephoto lens – in a compact, lightweight package. Whether you want an outdoor sports photography lens, a portrait lens, a landscape lens or a general purpose telephoto zoom – this lens can do it all. When portability and quality is important, this is the lens you want in your kit. Featuring L-series build quality, the EF 70-200mm f/4L USM is robust yet beautifully designed. As for optical quality, it has that covered too. You will notice excellent colour and bokeh in your images, and that each image is very sharp, even wide open. Meanwhile, vignetting, distortion and chromatic aberration are all very well controlled. Looking for exceptional focus? With Canon’s ring-type USM, you can enjoy fast, accurate and quiet autofocusing, with Full Time Manual focusing available when you want more control.
