SLR Gear Reviews Canon's 70-200 2.8L IS II

The Canon 70-200 f2.8L IS Mark II Lens

Well, the long-awaited SLR Gear review of Canon's latest telephoto zoom, the 70-200 2.8L IS II, is finally complete. The result: very positive, as it should be for the $2400 price tag. The lens was praised for its sharpness, build quality, and resistance to chromatic aberration. This follows the findings of reviews already done at Photozone (full frame and crop), Digital Photography Review, and The Digital Picture, all of which were very high on the praise. Having rented and found the first version of this lens very impressive as a whole (it was slightly soft at f2.8), many Canon shooters may have a dilemma over whether to upgrade or not. Hopefully, Canon has solved its production issues by now so everyone who wants to can buy.
