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

20 June 2015

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.

21 May 2013

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

    heavy, bulky

13 February 2012

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.

    Fantastic lens!

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.
