Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM

 

The Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens is the go-to telezoom for many a pro shooter; its excellent optics make it a clear Editors' Choice.

Previous lens is still a very solid option; heavy; expensive

If there’s anything I can say against buying the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM it’s that there’s a reason the previous lens was in Canon’s line-up for so long. The older 70-200mm f/2.8 is an excellent piece of glass and the type of workhorse that’s hard...
