    Canon EF 70 - 200 mm f 2.8 L USM
    SKU 2569A018AA
    The EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L USM is a professionally quality, fast-aperture telephoto zoom lens popular with wildlife and sports photographers, as well as those shooting weddings and portraiture.

    Features

    High performance, L-series telephoto zoom lens
    Constant f/2.8 maximum aperture
    Four UD lens elements
    1.5m minimum focussing
    Water and dust resistant
    Eight-bladed aperture
    Ring-type USM AF motor

    The professional photographer's telezoom lens.

    A zoom as good as a prime lens

    One of the finest telephoto zoom lenses in the EF line, optically comparable to a prime lens. Four UD-glass elements to correct chromatic aberrations and multiple zoom groups allow internal focusing, resulting in high image quality throughout the zoom range. Compatible with Extender EF 1.4x and 2x.

    Fast, constant maximum aperture

    Shooting in low-light conditions is possible thanks to the lens' fast maximum aperture of f/2.8, which stays constant throughout the zoom range. Such an aperture also gives control over depth of field.

    L-series quality

    The L-series is Canon's flagship professional lens range, representing the best in precision-designed EF optics. L-series lenses combine superior performance with superlative handling, and are resistant to dust and moisture.

    Ultrasonic focusing

    A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting. Furthermore, full-time manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.

    Super Spectra coating

    Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate colour balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and ghosting – a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera's sensor.

    Accessories

    A lens hood and a soft case are included.

    Go have a look in the classified section on Welcome to Outdoorphoto to get an idea of prices. They range from 12 - 14K but still dont sell very quickly. Go back in the past and see what many sold at.

    At that price it is a steal! Even though its the mk1, excellent lens. Have the one without is and sharpness is awesom! Not really a lens for aqurium pics though, but still an awesome lens.
