CANON EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM LENS REVIEW: THE BEST CANON TELEPHOTO LENS

This is the ultimate Canon telephoto lens. I review the Canon 70-200 f/2.8L Mark II lens. With a professional build quality, fast glass, optimal stabilization and more, this is worth a buy for the working professional.
Check out the Canon 70-200 2.8 Mark 2 Here:

Joel Cedric says:

im planning on using this lens for graduation events. how does this lens handle pictures at incredibly low lights?

Ilja Aksjonov says:

Good overview. Thanks! Keep up (Y)

66stryker66 says:

I would call it the best zoom not telephoto.. The best telephoto @ 200mm is the 200mm F2 USM IS

Chelsy Fancher says:

Is there a lense similar for Nikon? I see this lense in a lot of photography videos, but I haven’t seen anyone mention a Nikon equivalent.

Yesi Mercer says:

hi does this lens work with canon rebel xsi

Harry HarryL says:

The IQ  results from some of the top Jazz festivals was incredible. Amazing lens!

natserog says:

great video! what is the closest you can get with this lens and stay sharp. thanks!

John Santosa says:

DREAM lens lol

Marita Mones says:

You’re awesome! Thanks for this review 🙂

fantomfoto says:

This is my dream lens. I went with the Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 because it has image stabilization which the Canon lacks and some places say the Tamron is sharper. But for 70-200 I really want the Canon. With those two lenses in my bag I wouldn’t really need anything else. Maybe my 85mm f/1.8 to really blow out the background but that’d be rare for my situations.

georgekutty james says:

Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM or EF 70-200mm f/4L USM or Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM which is good for canon 80 D ?

Happy Home says:

This is my one and only lens for My Canon 1Dx Mark II

John Campbell says:

I have the old 70-200 f4.0. It’s a solid piece of gear for tight budgets. In a studio setting, the IQ is fantastic. I’d want the extra speed of the 2.8 for wildlife/sports, but the 4.0 works well for portraits.

natserog says:

I have a canon 5D Mark 3. All E lens

Joe's Photo & Video Channel says:

That is an excellent lens for both APS-C and Full Frame users. Strangely enough even though this one came out in 2012 and is still up to date are far as lenses go. There have been rumors that a new update is in the works..

Cynthia Stielow says:

Eric- outstanding review– so helpful! Can you recommend a monopod that you use with it (do you use a quick release and is that a separate item). I can’t tell what needs to be added on to make it all work. Thank you for these super fun, not too tech-y reviews! You are awesome!

BIG CHIEF says:

what is the difference between the version 1

Fantasy Fitness says:

Debating between this lens or the 24-105 f4 v1 as my first L series

Zombiesniper says:

I shot both the 70-200mm F2.8 and F4. Both great lenses but I went with the F4 because even though I loose some light the IQ was just a bit sharper on the F4.
I do find it funny when people say that a 3lb lens is heavy. I shoot wildlife so anything under 10b is a blessing.

Sherab Namdhak says:

Mine arrived yesterday. It’s stunning now paired with my 80d. You could say it’s Christmas and birthday rolled into one.

Troy Durrance says:

We photographers are a visual group, as you probably know. I don’t think I’m alone when I say I was really hoping/expecting to see more photos for comparison.

Traductor Católico says:

I just Bought This lens and I love it
It’s my Second Pro lens
My firt one was the Sigma Art 35mm 1.4
and Now this one Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM
using in a Canon 70D just waitting next year to get a 6D MK II or a 5D MK IV

Victoria Cedeno says:

I just ordered this lens! I have a t6i hopefully it works good with it until I upgrade my body which is soon… super excited!

TechElement says:

Hey Eric what software do you use to edit your videos??

adam cain says:

I have the Sigma 70-200 f2.8 OS I am looking to upgrade to the Canon version, I only use it for sports so IS is not an issue. My question is how does the non IS version compare to the IS markii version with image quality. Its a big price jump in between the two.

panxam says:

what would be a best option for person who like photography and taking occasional picture of his family and few friends ?
Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0 L USM Lens -VS- Canon EF 70-200mm f4 L IS USM -VS- Canon EF 70-200mm f2.8L -VS- Canon EF 70-200mm f2.8 L IS II USM ?
Is that IS option is worth to have on f2.8 ? Because there is a massive price difference… and f2.8 is already quite fast…

Billy Innes says:

Just bought this lens as my first L lens and I love it

natserog says:

Thanks Eric. So at 70mm you can get as close as 5feet?

Ghotra Saab says:

how many price in us dollar of this lens

Sully Cortez says:

i want this lens more than any other…. and the 18-105 G from sony lol – but i love canon lenses… can’t stand their cameras tho

Steve Young Photography says:

my favourite lens. never lets me down. only the 85 1.2 has an even more awesome look/feel to the shots but it’s way more difficult to use and slow to focus.

natserog says:

Thanks. I didn’t think you could get that close
I have a canon e 14mm and 50 mmm prime. The 70 to 200 would be great!!

Kamal Photographer says:

Can this lens work on 600D or no

Ivanovich Biggenden says:

Eric thanks for your time and effort I don’t shoot canon but I like to hear different review, Keep it up and don’t listen to the negative assclown fanboys

Jonathan Banks says:

Crazy good lenses, I hired it for a wedding + weekend test and very much enjoyed it… Glad I could give it back though, it’s too dam heavy perhaps for non pro use, but I think for most pro use too… I got the f4 is version about a year later and love it, much more manageable weight for a full day wedding and don’t mind carrying it around just incase … It’s actually lighter than my 24-70 f2.8.. Which seems silly 🙂

Steven Scholten says:

yeah. I own one. awesome lens. if not the best piece of glass you can buy. LOVE it.

Terri Newton says:

I bought this lens last year. LOVE it. !!!!!

RJ Bradbury Photography says:

I own the V1 of this. It’s good but not as sharp and does not like shooting in to back light. That said it was a lot cheaper than this V2 lens.

Did you find that it flairs a lot/loses contrast when shooting back lit subjects?
