Canon EF 70-200mm F2.8L Lens transcript is following.
Hello Photographers, Tom here from Cameras Direct with another Canon L Series Lens Review.

Today we are going to take a look at the Canon EF 70-200mm F2.8L Lens.

This is one of the best zoom lenses Canon has ever made and they’ve made it in a non IS version (this one) and an “IS” version as well (the review is also on Youtube.)

Basically it is the same lens although this “non-IS” version is the older version and around about $800 – $1000 cheaper than its IS version II brother.

It still is the legendary build quality and the amazing image quality you get from this lens.

Its f/2.8 70-200mm EF lens so its a full-frame lens. You can use these on a crop sensor and it will then give you around 105-300mm focal length.

Ideal focal length for indoor sports, portraiture and so on.

The full frame photographer of course gets 70-200mm .

The Non-IS version is NOT weather sealed so thats one thing to remember when purchasing this lens but it is still made like a tank.

Beautiful USM focus so its super fast and silent.

The image quality is stunning. We’re talking sharp at all apertures at all focal lengths. This lens will not let you down.

As a wedding or a portrait photographer or adventure photographer doing indoor sport or some sort of sport on the sidelines where you are closer to the action than say you would be with surfing and stuff like this, that’s a nice little focal length range to do it.

Add the beautiful wide f/2.8 maximum aperture will give you a lovely background blur especially when using the long end of the zoom.

When you zoom or when you focus the lens does not move or make it bigger is it is it goes. A lot of lenses do, the amateur ones but all the mechanism is inside this and stays put. It stays this size all the way through.

Of course you get a lens collar, of course we recommend putting a Hoya Pro1 HD UV or Protector on this lens to protect it.

And it comes with a lens hood and a case.

So folks if you want a L Series quality lens, one of the best you can buy without paying for the big IS version then …
