A fast, stabilised telephoto prime lens
This solidly built L series lens from Canon will be a welcome addition to any Sports photography kit. The medium long telephoto focal length, fast f2 aperture and sturdy construction ensure that this lens delivers on its huge promise.
Letting in plenty of light
The large f2 aperture of this superb telephoto lens from Canon suits hand-held and available light shooters perfectly. By letting in more light this lens allow for faster shutter speeds, all but eliminating blur caused by camera movement. For action photographers, this feature is also beneficial for photographing fast-paced subjects that require these faster shutter speeds in order to be frozen still in the frame. Your subjects are now the real heroes of the image, with all background information reduced to beautiful, yet featureless blur.
IS and USM - stable and fast
The built-in Image Stabiliser of the Canon 200mm f2L lens is another arsenal in your attack on camera shake. This stabiliser allows you to shoot at up to 5 shutter speeds slower, maintaining sharpness all the while.
