Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM Lens Review
The Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM is the non-stabilized version of the highly popular Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens. Coming in at about $1000 cheaper this lens is a popular choice for more budget minded sports photographers, especially since the shutter speeds required to freeze movement in sports is significantly faster than the 1/focal length guideline. This is an older design lens that has been in the Canon lineup since the 1990’s, but still offers excellent image quality.
