New Canon 70-200mm lenses

Post by Cary »

Canon has announced two new 70-200mm lenses:

Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM - $1,299.00

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM - $2,099.00

Pretty surprising, as the 2.8 II is already one of the best zooms from any manufacturer. I can't see how they could make it much better.

Of course they would do this just after I upgraded from the f4 IS to the f2.8 IS II. With that said I am extremely happy with my 70-200 and don't see myself changing it anytime soon. They really can't do much to improve upon a lens that is already so great.

Sounds like the biggest selling point is flare reduction:

Haven't experienced bad flare with the 70-200 IS II, but I hardly ever shoot in those conditions with it.
