Canon EF 200mm: Key Features
L-series construction and optics Two UD lens elements Fast, quiet USM autofocus Super Spectra coatings Circular aperture for excellent background bokeh Passes distance information to camera for E-TTL II flash system Soft case and lens hood
Compact telephoto lens Two UD (ultra-low dispersion) glass elements, combined with rear focusing technology, enable the EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM to deliver extremely sharp images. Background blur appears smooth and natural.
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.
Large f/2.8 aperture A fast maximum aperture of f/2.8 provides outstanding speed for shooting in low light conditions, without the need for flash. The large aperture also provides fine control over depth of field.
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.
Integration with E-TTL II flash metering The lens passes distance information back to a compatible EOS camera's E-TTL II flash system to ensure optimal flash metering.
Accessories The EF 200mm f/2.8L USM lens comes supplied with a lens hood and a soft case.
