If you are reading this, it's probably because you are shopping for the perfect telephoto lens for your Canon camera. Am I correct?... or maybe it's just because you love my product reviews... okay, maybe not.
At any rate, let's talk about the Canon EF 70-200mm Telephoto Zoom Lens. First off, this lens is relatively affordable in the world of lenses. Especially when it comes to Canon lenses. Consider the fact that if you want to take pictures of the moon, a cheating spouse or a cheating spouse on the moon you can drop 13k for the Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS II USM Lens. Yes, you read that correctly! So unless you are a spy or work for NASA let's get back to the Canon EF 70-200mm Telephoto Zoom Lens.
Lightweight and Durable
The first great point to make about this lens is how light and durable it is. I was expecting this thing to be a bit of a monster, but that was not the case. It's considerably lightweight at 700 grams and extremely durable with a metal base plate. So rest assured you are not paying for some chunk of plastic here.
Lightning Fast, High-Quality Auto-focus
Canon EF 70-200mm Telephoto Zoom Lens' ability to auto-focus with lightning fast speed just might be the best quality of this camera. And the reason it can do this is because of it's ultrasonic motor. This lightning fast auto-focus feature gives users the power to take high-quality photos of objects up close, and in motion. That means those skateboarders or pics from the NASCAR race won't come out blurry. You'll also notice that as the lens adjusts, it does not extend outward. This is a nice change from a lot of lenses out there.
Crystal Clear Video
If you enjoy making videos with your camera outside, you are going to love this lens. It shoots remarkably clear video. However, you will want to use a tripod when you do or your camera will capture shakiness as it can be a bit awkward to hold and shoot videos with a camera and this lens.
Things to Consider
Although this lens is a great outdoor lens, if used indoors you are going to need a flash or you will not get the results you are looking for. Having said that, the Canon EF 70-200mm Telephoto Zoom Lens is an excellent portrait lens.
The "proof is in the pudding" as they say right, and nothing says more about this camera than the rave reviews it consistently gets from its users. This lens is the number one selling, Canon lens, and for good reason.
