The new telephoto standard features a large, bright and constant f/2.8 aperture, which, along with the 70-200mm focal zoom ranges, presents an ideal workhorse lens for professional and amateur photographers shooting sports, wildlife, wedding and event action. The new RF lens is 27 percent shorter and 28 percent lighter than its EF counterpart with a large portion of the lens element arrangement closer to the camera body. This arrangement is designed to provide photographers with a more balanced feel and experience even at telephoto end of the zoom range. Additionally, the shorter and lighter design allows the lens to be more easily stowed away in a camera bag when not in-use.
A first for Canon lenses, the new RF 70-200mm F2.8L IS USM features two Nano USM motors providing an even greater level of high-speed autofocus for still image shooting and quiet and smooth autofocus for video shooting. The lens also incorporates a floating focus control, another Canon first, that drives the two lens groups individually while using the two aforementioned Nano USM motors. The floating focus lens element shortens focusing distance and help reduce breathing, providing users with fast, consistent and reliable performance.
Additional features of the Canon RF 70-200mm F2.8 L IS USM include:
-Customizable control ring that allows photographers to adjust exposure compensation, shutter speed, aperture or ISO
-17 lens elements in 13 groups including two aspherical lenses, one super UD lens and four UD lenses, that help to reduce chromatic aberration
-CIPA standard five stops of image stabilization (IS) including three IS modes with dual-sensing and combination IS
-12-pin communication system
-L-Series dust and weather resistant build with fluorine coating
-Subwavelength Structure Coating (SWC) helps minimize lens flare and ghosting
