A simply gorgeous lens! The Mark I of this lens was something of a legend amongst pro photographers, and the Mk II improves on that - it's even faster and clearer!
The 70-200mm f/2.8 is amazing for portrait work, sports, weddings and shooting subjects when you can't get up close. The compression on this lens gives a really beautiful bokeh effect and I use it as often as I can.
Fabulously robust build quality, AF/MF switch, next-generation image stabilisation, and weather-resistance.
It also has a minimum focusing distance of 1.2m/3.9 ft. at all zoom settings, which is useful for those in smaller spaces trying to get closer to a subject.
A total workhorse - it's never let me down and produces beautiful results.
My kit is all well maintained, clean and comes with a choice of carry bags, lens hoods, batteries and chargers as required. The 70-200mm works brilliantly with either my 5D MkIII or 7D camera bodies, or any other Canon EF-compatible cameras.
