Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

EOS digital SLRs are backed up by the world's most comprehensive system of interchangeable lenses. From 14mm ultra wide angle to 600mm super telephoto, the 60+ lenses in the EF series cover all possible shooting requirements. See the world from new perspectives. Capture your vision through the eyes of EOS.

Fixed focal length lenses generally offer a wider maximum aperture than zoom lenses. From ultra-wide angle lenses ideal for indoor shooting to long telephoto lenses extensively used for wildlife, sports and news photography Canon has the fixed focal length lens to suit you.

Canon offers a telephoto lens boasting high image quality and carrying ease. With two UD-glass elements and rear focusing to correct aberrations, image delineation is extremely sharp. Fast f/2.8 200mm Canon EF medium telephoto is ideal for sports and action photography in most lighting conditions.

Background blur is also natural looking, as was simulated by Canon. The lens comes with a dedicated, detachable hood.

i have a bunch of Canon L series teles for various purposes: 70-200 f4, 70-200 f2.8 and my favourite the 200 f2.8 prime. This thing is simply amazing. Focuses in a flash, is light weight for travelling with (I'd guess it's a third the weight of the 70-200 f2.8), brings the subject right out of the picture with that amazing narrow DoF. I love it. It's also very cheap: it must be the bargain of the Canon L range. There are plenty out there second hand and the lens is bomb proof so worth checking into non-new options. Summary: stunning.

See my picture posted up of Maisy, my Irish Water Spaniel... great detail, lovely colours, excellent DoF.

Yes, this lens might not be as flexible as one of the 70-200 zooms, but goodness me, what image quality! I used it for the first time last weekend, at an indoor concert; it gave me amazingly sharp detail and gorgeously deep colours even when hand-held (steadily!) at 1/100s f2.8. "L" indeed!

I have had this lens for over a year now and feel I am well aquainted with it enough to give it a review.
The first thing you notice is the size and weight. Heavy(ish) yes, but built to last, very solid. The image quality is superb, as you would expect from an 'L' lens. Auto-focussing is amazing, both quick and crisp. Colour representation is excellent, in fact I have not seen better. Believe it or not this also makes for a great portrait lens as you have to be some distance away from the subject in order to frame the photograph, this allows the subject to feel a lot more relaxed, thus creating a more natural image. This is especially useful at weddings when you want those special candid shots where the subject is unaware of what you are doing. Sometimes these shots make the wedding.
I like to use my 2x extender giving me a 400mm lens whilst retaining autofocus. The focussing speed is very slightly slowed down by using the extender, but not enough to cause any real problems. I use this combination photographing birds, both stationery and in flight and have had some excellent results.
Photographing people (without)the extender gives clear crisp and colourful images - then again every 'L' lens I have tried does this anyway.
As with any fixed lens, the photographer has to move in order to get what they really want, but surely this is what photography is all about.
I have no hesitation in recommending this lens to any photographer, especially if you want to take your photography onto the next level.

Verified Purchase
A fun lens to use, it has many 'positives' - autofocus is fast, the image quality is absolutely superb, colour rendition is of a very high standard, and it has a very nice bokeh. Being an 'L' lens, it is very well made as one would expect - solidly built. Overall a very, very good lens at a reasonable price. Bear in mind that being a 'long' prime, this lens will not cover all eventualities (few lenses truly do) and in some respects its practical application can be quite limited. Because of this lack of versatility, this is not the best 'walkabout' multi purpose lens. For that reason I would put it in the category of 'luxury' lens - you probably wont use it all that often but when you do use it in the right context, the results are very good. Even if I only use it one day per year I would never sell it, because it is that good. I also like the fact that because it is a long prime, for me that makes it a bit quirky and interesting.

Once upon a time I owned a Canon T90 and several Canon FD lenses. A Canon 200mm F2.8 lens was a dream for me but one I never realised. Over 25 years later both Canon EOS and Digital has came along and Canon FD has become a 'classic' camera system.

Anyway, I purchased a Canon EOS-3 a few months ago and have steadily built up a system of Canon EF lenses. I was still hankering after a 200mm F2.8 and eventually the opportunity arose. Sadly it wasn't from Amazon but that was a mistake.

This 200mm f 2.8 lens was a development on the FD version I'd wanted back in 1987. Whilst retaining the rear focussing, the optical design had been enhanced adding two elements of UD aka Ultra-Low Dispersion glass into a 9 element 7 group design.
UD glass is incorporated into a lens design to minimise/eradicate an optical flaw known as Chromatic Abberation/ Colour fringing. The impact of CA on pictures taken on film and with lenses up to 200mm isn't noticable under most circumstances. However Digital is a different thing, a digital sensor can reveal CA and it becoames quite noticeable and can ruin a picture
unless corrected.

Well thats the theory but what about the practice?

The first thing I noticed about the lens was its balance. It felt right from the instant I picked it up. Solidly made it is often referred to a a 'drain pipe' but there's nothing 'waste' like about it.

It fitted to my EOS-3 and reinforced my already favourable impression. Handling was impeccable. And the AF was swift, accurate and near silent.

I tried this lens out in and around Leicester a few weeks ago. And the operation was utterly impeccable. Focus was swift and uncannily accurate. I made use of the focus limiter to speed up the AF,which was already impressive.
