  • My "Partner in Crime!"

  • June 19, 2012
  • By: Elaine

One of the best tidbits of advice I have ever received was to buy this lens. And so I did from the Henry's booth at the Exposure Show (fall 2011). And I love it. And so I am passing the advice forward. This lens is the workhorse of my kit. Not only does it focus quickly at chaotic sporting events with relative ease, but the f/2.8 aperture is worth every penny when capturing the tender moments of portraiture. This lens functions more accureately when mounted on a tripod, but the Image Stabilization makes it possible to hand-hold in good light. I love the solidly constructed body and the sharpness that one can expect from L-series glass components. I gladly recommend this lens any day. It is my "partner in crime!"

For any situation if this lens is not the best one, is for the least the best world zoom lens on this area. The quality image is similar with the best prime (single) lens. Realy a tremendous product; (6/7 lens in 1) with a gorgeous optical quality for a great shots.The performance Not just a professional lens,is also a great oportunity for professional and serious amateurs photographers to capture subjects that impressed more in the eyes of the people.Just seeing. MAGNIFICENT!!! MARVELOUS!!! AMAZING PERFORMANCE!!!

  • Just amazing!!!

  • May 30, 2014
  • By: Jeffrey

I bought this lens in the exposure show because of all the good reviews it has received and also for the fact that I needed to get a good telephoto lens. I've debated on getting the version 1 to save some money but I keep getting pulled back to the version 2 because of all the great reviews. I have to say that I have made the right choice on this purchase. My photos are turning out so well even in low light situations. I'm so glad I made this purchase and there's just no substitute for this lens in the 70-200 range. The price is a little scary but it's all worth the bang for your buck. The focusing is super fast. The images are super sharp. Depth of field is amazing and perfect for portraits and weddings. Seriously, just buy the lens! You will not regret it!

  • BUY IT

  • December 15, 2013
  • By: KEN

If you are going to own one telephoto zoom this is it. Lightweight, ease of use, amazing images! As of December, 2013, Canon is offering $350.00 off this lens plus an additional $280.00 Canon Visa prepaid card. Amazing deal! I bought it at full retail and don't regret it for a second.

  • Pricy but priceless

  • April 23, 2013
  • By: Marcel

I finally succumbed and bought the lens. I had researched it everywhere and found that lens to be outstanding. I'm using it on my Mark III in all types of circumstances. I find it absolutely marvellous for portraiture although I have to be some distance away. Portraits result in great bokeh and the f/2.8 is great from 70-200! I admit it's a bit heavy, but I hang the lens mounted on the camera with a Black Rapid sling. This way, my camera is always on the ready and I can walk all day...

  • The Canon EF 70-200mm F2.8 IS II USM

  • July 29, 2011
  • By: Christopher

Earlier this year I rented the Canon EF 70-200mm F2.8 IS II USM lens to do a shoot at a wildlife refuge north of Toronto. I first compared it to my experience with the Sigma 70-200 2.8 and the previous Canon EF 70-200mm F2.8 IS USM. The new lens is larger, heavier and more expensive than any other 70-200 available for Canon, is it worth it? If you are after outright performance the short answer is an emphatic yes! The majority of the shooting I did was at f3.5 or less, most often f2.8. I found the lens to be quite sharp wide open. At smaller apertures sharpness, of course, increased. F8 to f11 produced results near as makes no difference to top quality primes when stopped down. Focus is incredibly fast and accurate. In tandem with my 7D I was never waiting for the camera or the lens to do what I needed it to as the situation or light changed. The performance of this lens increased my ?keeper rate? considerably over any other lens I've used. It allowed me to have so many great shots that the hardest part was choosing the best of the best, there was very little weeding out images where the focus was missed. The IS is absolutely phenomenal. It will keep your image steady long after your subject has moved. In low light I was able to shoot a still object at 200mm on a crop body (the 7D) at 1/40th of a second and the photo was completely sharp at a 100% crop. That equates to roughly 4 stops! The build quality of the lens is flawless and just holding it you get the sense that this is an immensely durable product. The full time manual focus ring moves smoothly with the perfect amount of resistance as does the zoom ring. The buttons to switch between focus modes and IS modes click into place with an appropriate amount of pressure that would make them difficult to move accidentally yet easy to move purposefully. The Canon EF 70-200mm F2.8 IS II USM performed flawlessly for me on my Canon EOS 7D. For the performance it achieves it is worth it's weight in gold.

  • Best tele zoom I have owned

  • May 24, 2011
  • By: DR

When I moved to digital I went with the prime 200 2.8L and then upgraded to the first edition of this lens which I used for years until it was stolen earlier this year. I replaced it with this version, the latest at time of writing. I find the II lens to be sharper at the edges and have better contrast than even its excellent predecessor. It's also better than the I lens when used with Canon's 2x converter. For birds, feather detail is excellent and DOF is consistent edge to edge as one would expect from L glass. Expensive, but highly recommended.

  • Canon 70-200 2.8L IS USM II lens

  • April 18, 2011
  • By: Bernard

I've recently purchased the latest Canon 70-200 2.8L IS USM II lens from Henry's in Orleans, and simply love it. I've looked at all Canon 70-200 options and other manufacturers', I end up getting this one. I love to shoot hockey, which limit me to f/2.8 for the aperture due to poor lighting conditions, and as I like to shoot hand held from the penalty box, IS was a must. After a few weeks with the lens, and hundreds of shots, I can honestly say I can see the improvement from the 1st version of this lens, it is sharper, and focus more rapidly, I'm not certain the AF speed increase is due to the glass or IS upgrade, but it is noticable. I'm really glad I went all the way ! It's worth the money, top of the line product quality built and performance.

  • Canon 70-200 f2.8 L IS II Lens review

  • March 21, 2011
  • By: Doug

The first review shown here can be ignored since this lens has only been out for 1 year so is bogus.... Anyway I have had this lens for a couple of weeks and has taken the place of a couple of very good primes I had as well as the non-IS version of this same lens. Image quality is the best and build quality superb. Very sharp images with beautiful background blur. IS works better then any lens I have ever had and that includes the Canon 100mm f2.8 L macro. Price is high on this lens but if you are looking for amazing quality/performance then it is worth the cost.
