This high grade telephoto zoom lens responds to the exacting requirements of professionals and advanced amateurs, yet at a reasonable price. One artificial crystal fluorite and two UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) glass lens elements in its optical system eliminate secondary spectrum, which is often the Achilles' heel of telephoto lenses resulting lower picture quality. These elements assure high resolution and high contrast throughout the entire zoom range. The latest optical design gives a minimum focusing distance of 1.2m and 0.21x maximum magnification. This lightweight, compact zoom lens, having the same level of optical performance as EF 70 - 200mm f/2.8L USM, assures good portability and operability. The ring USM (Ultrasonic Motor) and inner focusing system achieves high-speed silent autofocusing. Manual focusing, even while in AF mode, is possible thanks to full-time manual focusing mechanism. Extenders EF 1.4X and 2X can be used with this lens, and the optional Ring Tripod Mount A (W) is being marketed concurrently.

  • Lens Construction (group) 13

5 out of 5 stars   Canon L 70-200 at that price
By YX (Arlington, VA) November 18, 2012
Review submitted for Canon EF 70-200mm F/4.0 L USM Lens Exclusive Pro Kit (E2CN70200F4L)
Verified Purchaser
Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: It is pretty good lens. Every Canon users should try at least one of the four 70-200 lens. But this 70-200f4 is the cheapest one, and ready for the amateurs. See not everyone would spend more than 2000dollars on 2.8IS 70-200. Only a quarter of these money would help you built up a series of lens that covers all the range. However, if the finance situation is good, the other 3 70-200 lens would not let you down. Canon has made IS lens without lose its sharpness. But trust me, if someone like me is simply going to experience the long range lens by Canon's "white and red" L lens, then the 70-200 will be the ultimate choice, and it won't let you down.

Pros: Rugged, Lightweight, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Durable, Consistent Output, Strong Construction, Easily Interchangeable
Cons: Poor in Low Light
Other Comments: Since I don't need to rush at taking photographs, the lense works great. The use of a tripod is a great help when you use the non-IS model. Also I use a remote trigger.

By shuttermugpug (California) June 30, 2011
Review submitted for Canon EF 70-200MM F/4.0 L USM Lens Super Saver Kit (E1CN70200F4L)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Nice Bokeh, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Sharp at all focal length, Consistent Output
Cons:
Other Comments: If you understand where to use this lens, you will absolutely love it. It's light & small enough to carry it with me everywhere. It's sharp plus swift & accurate auto-focus. It's perfect for outdoor sports & portrait photography. Although the IS version is awesome, it's a moot point when shooting sports. Knowing this lens is for well lit outdoor sports, portrait, & landscape photography you will be very satisfied, especially for the price!

5 out of 5 stars   Great lens, [...]
By Photo Dad (Columbia, SC) September 16, 2010
Review submitted for Canon EF 70-200MM F/4.0 L USM Lens Super Saver Kit (E1CN70200F4L)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Cons:
Other Comments: I use this lens to shoot K-12 sporting and social events. It is perfect until dusk. F/4.0 with 1600 ISO is fast enough to shoot high school football 'till sundown, but too slow under average stadium lights. Very sharp! Fast AF. AF switch (1.2m/3m) helps keeps AF fast.

5 out of 5 stars   Best bang for the buck
By Slik (Independence, MO) July 18, 2010
Review submitted for Canon EF 70-200mm F/4.0 L USM Lens, CANON AUTHORIZED USA DEALER WARRANTY INCLUDED (CN70200F4L)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Nice Bokeh, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Easily Interchangeable, Strong Construction, Lightweight, Consistent Output
Cons:
Other Comments: For the money, this lens is hard to beat. I had rented the 2.8 version and ran it through the paces only to find that almost all of my shots were 5.6 to 11. No need for I.S. or faster glass. In low light I use a tropod anyway so it's a win win for me.

5 out of 5 stars   Amazing glass
By AJ (Claremont, CA) July 07, 2010
Review submitted for Canon EF 70-200mm F/4.0 L USM Lens, CANON AUTHORIZED USA DEALER WARRANTY INCLUDED (CN70200F4L)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Consistent Output, Strong Construction, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Cons: Poor in Low Light
Other Comments: This lens produces __sharp__ images. It is definitely sharper than my former 24-105 F/4L and is comparable to my 50mm F/1.4 prime. Absence of IS isn't an issue for me since I mostly shoot outdoors in good light (SoCal). Amazing photos from my children's swim meets. While IS can reduce camera shake, it does nothing to freeze the action. To get sharp photos of my swimmers (and to freeze water drops around them) I shoot at 1/500. Even at 200mm the photos are ridiculously sharp.

Other Comments: I love the quality images produced from this lens. I love the constant apeture. The build quality is excellent. This lens delivers and the cost is as good as it gets for so much lens. Do not buy a cheaper lens if you want this one. Wait and save up for this one.

5 out of 5 stars   Buy This Lens
By Fenix Wingz (BKNY) May 11, 2010
Review submitted for Canon EF 70-200mm F/4.0 L USM Lens, CANON AUTHORIZED USA DEALER WARRANTY INCLUDED (CN70200F4L)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction, Durable
Cons: Poor in Low Light
Other Comments: This is by far my favorite lens in my arsenal. I'm normally a macro fanatic, so up until using the Canon 70-200L my macro lens was my favorite. The 70-200L is an amazing performer in terms of image quality and focusing speed and accuracy. Paired with my Canon 40D, this lens hits the mark nearly every time. This is the non-IS version of the lens, so it is not idea for indoor/low-light situations, although I have used the lens indoors with a flash and it works just as wonderfully. It's nice to have 4.0 aperture throughout the range; 2.8 would be great, but it hasn't been a limitation for me as I use this lens outdoors 99% of the time. The USM focusing ring is very smooth and very quiet, build quality is excellent. Some people find the lens a bit heavy, and I agree that it's not going to make the idea all-purpose/walk-around lens due to its weight. On the other hand, a more comfortable aftermarket neck strap might change your mind about that. This is my first "L" glass and I absolutely love it.
