PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 200mm f/2L IS USM is an ultra-sharp telephoto lens with an ambitious aperture. It's absurdly expensive, but also a top-performing optic.
  • Pros: Incredibly sharp from edge-to-edge. Wide aperture. Supports drop-in filters. Optically stabilized. Built-in tripod collar.
  • Cons: Very expensive. Limited close focus ability. Heavy.

  • Excerpt: A professional-grade telephoto lens, which sports a fast maximum aperture of f/2, image stabilisation and silent focusing with full-time manual focus override. This is quite a specialised lens, costing around £4600, so we'll take a close look at how it performs in this review.

  • Excerpt: The Canon EF 200mm f/2L IS USM Lens is the highly-anticipated replacement for the long-discontinued but legendary Canon EF 200mm f/1.8 L USM Lens . This replacement lens was number 1 on my personal most-wanted Canon lens list - And I am in no way disappointed with it. It is an optically , mechanically and physically awesome lens . If you can manage the price and weight, this lens will impress you .

EF 200 mm f/2.0L IS USM

  • Excerpt: When it comes to the EF mount, the Canon company already in 1991 launched a 200 mm focal length and f/2.8 aperture lens. Currently you can find its successor, presented in 1996, in shops; even though it is an elderly instrument it still can impress with optical and mechanical properties.
  • Cons: work against bright light should have been better,, steep price.

PhotoReview

  • Summary: A fast 200mm prime telephoto lens that will provide high performance for sports and function photographers.If you watched any broadcasts of the Beijing Olympics you probably saw photographers with Canon's large, ultra-fast telephoto prime lenses, which are purpose-designed to provide pin-sharp images in low light levels. The new EF 200mm f/2L IS USM is one such lens, offering an outstanding combination of a 200mm focal length with a maximum aperture of f/2. . .
