Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM Lens Review

SLR Lens and Camera Reviews
6 June 2009
  • Summary: Performance of the lens is disappointing - for ~US$1,500 we expect a lens that performs consistently well and that's where Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM fails. The lens shows very good performance in the shorter zoom range (70-135mm), but falls short towards the longer end.

DP Review
16 May 2008
  • Conclusion: The Canon 70-200mm F2.8 L IS USM is quite simply an excellent lens, which will reward users with quality images in almost every situation. On full-frame 35mm, sharpness is very good even wide open, becoming excellent corner-to-corner when stopped down.
  • Pros: Superb build quality, Highly effective image stabilization, Excellent autofocus and manual override, Consistently high image quality across almost all of the range
  • Cons: Slightly soft wide open (most notably on APS-C), Average close-up performance, Somewhat susceptible to flare with direct light sources in or close to the frame

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM lens

  • Conclusion: For most photographic applications, either 70-200mm f/2.8 lens is an outstanding tool that produces exceptional image quality. Deciding whether to buy the IS lens or the non-IS lens should probably revolve around the photographer's perceived need to have image stabilization.

  • Excerpt: You cannot be a professional photographer without a high-quality, high-speed telephoto zoom lens. Within the Canon EOS system, three such lenses are available: All of these provide very high image quality. All have ultrasonic motors and allow for full-time manual focus.

  • Conclusion: Some of you may have already followed our full format review of the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 USM L IS II. The lens performed highly impressive here already but it's even better on APS-C DSLRs due to the sweet spot effect ("center" crop) here.

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 USM L IS II - Full Format Review / Test Report

18 April 2010
  • Conclusion: It was about time. The old Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 USM L IS (mk I) was a good lens but hardly something to rave about especially when used at 200mm. Canon claims to have the leadership in the tele lens arena and they probably do but so far with the exception of this lens segment.

  • Excerpt: The Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 IS offers a lot to professional photographers in terms of rugged design and functionality. It comes in the Canon L series classic white finish and will make any user look more businesslike. We could find no fault with the design and handling.

  • Summary: Sony A230 jest najmniej zaawansowanym przedstawicielem najnowszej serii cyfrowych lustrzanek, przeznaczonych dla powszechnego grona amatorów fotografii. Korpusy tych aparatów zostały zaprojektowane tak, aby przyciągały wzrok ciekawą stylistyką i jednocześnie sprawiały wrażenie niewielkich rozmiarów.
  • Pros: bardzo dobra celność autofokusu,, skuteczna stabilizacja obrazu,, niski poziom szumów w porównaniu do innych lustrzanek wyposażonych w 10-megapikselowe matryce CCD,, dobry pomiar światła,, rozsądny zakres tonalny,, dobry tryb zdjęć seryjnych (jak na tę klasę sprzętu),, dobry balans bieli,, niesko...
  • Cons: mały, wąski i niewygodny uchwyt,, mały wizjer,, brak funkcji wstępnego podnoszenia lustra,, brak funkcji Live View,, brak przycisków włączania/wyłączania stabilizacji, jakości i rodzaju zdjęć, balansu bieli, bracketingu, opcji lampy błyskowej oraz drugiego pokrętła sterującego,, brak uszczelnień ...
