The Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II USM is astonishing. It really is the sharpest zoom I've ever tested. Heck, after shooting mostly LEICA for the past couple of years, I forgot that my 5D Mark II could make images this sharp. This was in 2011; today the new 100-400mm II has even higher MTF curves and is probably better still.

Not only is it sharper and has less distortion than any other tele zoom, it focuses almost instantly. It's scary: silently and without vibration, things magically just pop into focus.

It's also got Canon's fantastic Image Stabilization (IS). rated for four stops of improvement. You can leave the tripod at home.

No wonder this lens is in every pro's bag. For people, weddings, portraits, nature, landscape, and well, anything for which you need the best tele zoom you can get, this is the lens if you're a full-time pro. Long zooms are the lenses on which each maker stakes it reputation, and they therefore are the very best each maker can do. Canon has spared no expense in making this the best lens they can, and it shows.

For $2,400. Canon graciously throws in not only caps, but also the ET-87 hood and very nice LZ1326 zippered, padded case.

For more casual use, the Canon 70-200mm f/4 IS costs and weighs a lot less, but if you're counting every pixel or need even faster autofocus, this new lens really does live up to its price. It's astounding; it's the real deal.

This Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II USM lens replaces the first Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM that was introduced in 2001.

This L lens is optimized for 35mm film and full-frame digital, and of course works on 1.3x and 1.6x Canon cameras .

This Canon EF EOS 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II works perfectly with every Canon EOS camera ever made, meaning every Canon DSLR and every Canon autofocus 35mm camera made since 1987.

This means of course it works great on today's 5D Mark II and Canon 7D. but it works just as well on my original Canon EOS 620 from 1987!

As a full-frame lens, this works on all Canon SLRs, regardless of format. As a professional lens, I will be reviewing this lens on full-frame.

EF means "electronic focus," meaning that there is an autofocus motor in the lens itself. All Canon lenses since 1987 have been EF.

USM means Ultra-Sonic Motor. This means autofocus is almost silent, and that you can grab the big focus ring for instant manual focus override at any time.
