Improving upon one of the most celebrated lenses in the Canon EF line is no easy feat, but Canon has done just that.

5 out of 5 stars   Great lens/Kit
June 04, 2015
Review submitted for Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L II IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens Exclusive Pro Kit (E2CN70200USMLISII)
Pros: I have been using this lens to take great sports photos- including hockey and lacrosse. The lens is very sharp and the pictures have been very impressive.
Cons: The lens is very heavy- I highly recommend a tripod if possible.

5 out of 5 stars   Best lens I''ve owned!
By Lens Guy on April 02, 2015
Review submitted for Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens EOS DSLR Cameras 2751B002 (CN70200USMLISII)
Pros: -Sharpness is razor through entire range -Even using at f2.8, it's sharper than any lens I own (50 1.4, 85 1.8, 25-105L, etc.) -IS is very quiet when kicks-in (Mark I model was very loud!) -4 stops of IS + the weight of the lens on the palm of your hand makes for outstanding stabilization even below 4 stops. -No longer need my Canon 85/1.8 prime to get that "look" to portraits
Cons: -Pretty heavy lens, you will need to use a strap that goes across your shoulder to the other side. A straight hanging neck strap will probably be a problem over time, maybe even just an hour or so. -The width of this lens may make handling it difficult for smaller hands (if this is you, try it out first via LensRentals.com or something). -Price tag will bite a little (but worth it if you make money from photos, or just want the best-in-class optics for your camera.)

5 out of 5 stars   the ultimate glass
By jackarutu on December 27, 2013
Verified Purchase
Review submitted for Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens EOS DSLR Cameras 2751B002 (CN70200USMLISII)
Pros: Builds Arm Strength, Easy To Use, Improves Performance, Quality Construction, Tack Sharp, Exceeds Expectation
Cons: Heavy, No Handle
Other Comments: This is probably the fastest zoom lens in my bag, and its great for "all-round" lens if you have the arm strength for it- my arms were tire after 30minutes of use. It was great to use in low light settings, indoors, and dusk time, and was surprise it captured the stars in the night sky. The only con I can of is the tripod can't be used as a handle/grip to support it.

Review submitted for Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens EOS DSLR Cameras 2751B002 (CN70200USMLISII)
Pros: Quality Construction, Easy To Use, Improves Performance
Cons: Heavy
Other Comments: At the connection between the lens and the camera body (70D), there is some movement or play. It appears to have excessive clearance, and I'm concerned this may jeopardize the weather resistance.

5 out of 5 stars   A Must Have Lens for the Camera Bag!

Verified Purchase
Review submitted for Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens EOS DSLR Cameras 2751B002 (CN70200USMLISII)
Pros: Quality Construction, Simply Superb Glass
Cons: Heavy
Other Comments: If you shoot sports or wildlife and need reach, this lens is certainly worth the price! It's a must have lens. Heavy, but that's because of the superb build quality. First time I shot with it, I was amazed at the images. You could get a lens for $1k less but I'd be hesitant until you gave this one a try.

5 out of 5 stars   Jaw-dropping performance
By Michael - dancer's father on June 18, 2013
Verified Purchase
Review submitted for Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L II IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens Exclusive Pro Kit (E2CN70200USMLISII)
Pros: Bright, Fast Focus, Uniform, Solidly Built, Sharp
Cons: 15kg, Large, Stands Out In A Crowd
Other Comments: I initially got this lens specifically to take photos during ballet recitals that by daughter is in. The f2.8 aperture and 70-200mm reach are wonderful for that. At 70mm I get the full stange and at 200mm I get a single dancer on the stage, all while being able to shoot at f2.8 and keep the shutter speed up. However, this lens really shows its amazing image quality when doing portraits indoors with natural light and when doing high resolution plant and animal photography outdoors. This lens is so good that one can and would use it over a prime lens in the same focal range. Yes, some primes are faster than this or maybe a bit sharper, but nothing that one can usually notice, especially if the subject is moving at all.

Review submitted for Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L II IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens with UV Filter (E1CN70200USMLISII)
Pros: Rugged, Durable, Strong Construction, Nice Bokeh, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Cons: Heavy
Other Comments: This lens is great in every aspect. I use this primarily for portrait but does not end there. Wildlife and sports are amongst the few other field of interest in photography. The only negative thing that I can say about this lens is its weight. This lens is massive and really is built like a tank. I thought people are just exaggerating it just like how other people pointed out that 24-70 is also heavy. And no doubt, people are right, this lens is really heavy. I love the output that I get on this lens. Very consistent and nothing to complain about.

I sold my 85mm 1.8, 70-200 4L, 100-400 4L to purchase this lens and a 2X extender. My camera bag has shrunk to the 24-70L, 70-200 2.8L and the 2X extender to compliment my 7D. I can live all day long at f/4 for high school sports. Just a great lens.

It focuses so quick and quietly and the pictures are so clear. It's a heavy/bulky monster so I wouldn't use it for casual photography like at parties etc...

Pros: Nice Bokeh, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction, Rugged
Cons:
Other Comments: The picture quality is awesome. I use it for birds, large and small animals and scenery. The auto focus is very fast. By adding the EF 2X III extender the lens becomes a 400 mm variable and the auto focus is still very fast. I put off buying this lens for quite some time because of cost. I'm kicking myself for not just buying it sooner, it is such a beautiful lens.

Review submitted for Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens EOS DSLR Cameras 2751B002 (CN70200USMLISII)
Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: A must-have for any professional photographer to have in their repertoire, I read a lot of reviews measuring this against the first version and decided to go with the second cause folks said it focused faster, was quieter and overall color and glass was better. I use this lens weekly with the other photographers I work with and had to get one as soon as I could afford it (it will put a dent in our wallet and maybe a crink in your neck) Of course, going fixed would be great but I find the variable lenses to be so much more convenient.

Cons: Heavy
Other Comments: I was hesitant to purchase because of the cost, but glad I did. The colors are amazing as well as the depth of field. This lens has changed my photography in a positive way. I have both a 60D and 5D Mark II and each one gives a different positive result. Works best on the full frame sensor of the 5D. The details are amazing.

5 out of 5 stars   70-200/2.8L - What can't it do?
By NCal-Cyclist on March 15, 2011
Verified Purchase
Review submitted for Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L II IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens with UV Filter (E1CN70200USMLISII)
Pros: Fast, Image Quality, Bokeh
Cons: SIZE, Cost
Other Comments: This is currently my nicest lens, and has truly spoiled me. Having shot this lens side by side with my 70-300L, I can say it's worth the the extra money if you shoot in low light situations or sports/action. So far I haven't found a use or place I couldn't get this lens to work - and it produces images with such sharp focus and beautiful bokeh, the pictures almost look 3d. As an added bonus, the Canon TC's are compatible for additional range if needed.

Review submitted for Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens EOS DSLR Cameras 2751B002 (CN70200USMLISII)
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, Durable
Cons: Bulky
Other Comments: This lens is one the best tele zoom lens. The previous version is already sharp enough at wide open aperture which is f2.8, but this one is even better though out all focal length. The bokeh of this lens can be describe as bokehliciousness. The only bad thing about this lens is just too heavy.
