Canon 200mm f/2.8L II

Available Today

This is the best lens nobody knows about. The 200mm f/2.8L is as sharp and nearly as fast as the famed Canon 135 mm f/2L. Its small size allows it to be a “stealth” telephoto, since no one realizes you’re working with a long lens. It takes a 1.4x teleconverter quite well, resulting in a 280mm f/4.

For years now, I think I’m the only person who likes this lens, and I can’t understand why. It’s sharper than the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II zoom and a third of the size and cost. It’s inconspicuous and great for spontaneous photography. People who start posing when they see a big white lens never look twice at a camera with this mounted. My personal favorite use is at events that won’t allow “professional” lenses in the stands— security won’t let me in with a big white lens but never look twice at the 200mm.
