Is the Canon EF 200mm f/2L IS USM Lens right for you? Learn all you need to know in The-Digital-Picture.com's review!
A professional-grade telephoto lens, which sports a fast maximum aperture of f/2, image stabilisation and silent focusing with full-time manual focus override. This is quite a specialised lens, costing around £4600, so we'll take a close look at how it performs in this review.
I've been dreaming of this lens for years. Now that I've had some time to really use it - I am confident in saying that this is the best portrait lens, period. That's right... I'm looking at you 85 1.2!!
Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Attracts attention, Expensive, Heavy
This lens is fantastic, and will help a skilled portrait photographer produce excellent images. Compared to my other L series portrait lenses (which are also amazing) this lens is superior in many ways. For instance, it seems even sharper and quicker to focus than my 135mm f/2 L.
Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Sexy As F, Twice As Fast As F28
Attention Grabbing, Expensive, Heavy, Not An Indoor Lens Duh
Out of this world performance. Somewhat heavy so bring a tripod if you plan to shoot for more than an hour or two. Not all situations call for a 200mm prime but when it does the performance, bokeh and image quality sets you apart from almost anything.
One of the greatest lens I've ever used. I had the f/1,8 FD version, which was already stunning, but this new model is even better, especially wide open. And the stabilizer is a great addition. To improve this lens, I can only think about a shorter minimum focusing distance.
Fast auto-focus, Superior build quality, Super-sharp images, bokeh, sharpness wide open, color rendition
After owning this lens for two years, I finally decide to review it, after I sold it not long ago. I bought the lens brand new two years ago. Every praise you read from the previous reviewers is true, period. I am not going to repeat those words here. However, this is not the lens for everybody.
Weight & size & price
This lens is extremely sharp! And I am not easily impressed as I already got Canon’s 300 mm f2.8 IS L as well as Canon’s 500 mm F4 IS L and 9 other L-lenses. Expensive, yes, but the overall image quality (both on my 1ds MarkII & III) is simply stunning. Portraits, animals, sport, flowers, etc.
