Details & Highlights
High–performance, L–series telephoto zoom lens combining light weight and compactness with an f/4 maximum aperture. Inner focusing and the ring USM enable quick and quiet autofocusing. Also, a circular polarizing filter can be attached and used without difficulty because the front lens element does not rotate during focusing. The tripod collar (sold separately( is the same one used with the EF 300mm f/4L USM.
Details from Canon
This lens is often overlooked due to the lack of brighter aperture and image stabilization. One of the sharpest lenses in it's class, the EF 70–200mm f/4L USM lens offers a single fluorite coupled with two additional ultra–low dispersion glass elements. This is similar to having 4 elements of the UD glass, for a third of the price of the EF 70–200mm f/2.8L IS USM II and less than half the weight of the same.
The consistent f/4 aperture can be used handheld in a multitude of different environments, including indoors. With modern DSLR higher ISO capabilities, your images will still retain sharpness, incredible color saturation and greater contrast range.
The EF 70–200mm f/4L USM sports the same white chassis construction that has made Canon's "L" series of lenses unique and robust. A substantial lens that easily extends your reach after a wide angle zoom such as the EF–S 18–55mm, EF–S 15–85mm, or even the EF 24–70mm F2.8L. Add one to your lens toolbox, and you won't be dissappointed with the results.
