Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM Telephoto Lens

Never knowingly undersold

Product information

Get into the thick of the action with the Canon EF 70-200mm F/4L telephoto lens. Ready for professional results, it combines manageable, lightweight design with versatile range for exceptionally detailed photos, even at extreme range.

Key benefits:

  • L-series lenses combine superior performance and great handling, with resistance to dust and moisture.
  • The maximum F/4 aperture is available at all focal-lengths. This means exposure settings will not change as the lens is zoomed through its range, giving you more consistent shots every time.
  • The lens is built for crisp, high-contrast images, free of colour fringing and other unwanted effects.
  • An ultrasonic motor (USM) powers rapid - near silent - autofocus. Full manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.
  • Super Spectra coating keeps colour balance vibrant and accurate, while reducing unwanted flare and ghosting for sharper images than ever.
  • The circular aperture gives out of focus regions a softer feel making foreground objects stand out against a smoother, blurred background.
  • Includes a cylindrical bayonet hood and soft case.
  • For use with Canon DSLR cameras
