Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM Lens
The technical details behind this lens
Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM Lens offers a great optical design. It features One UD (Ultra-Low Dispersion) element and one Super UD element that help to minimise chromatic aberrations and colour fringing in order to deliver greater clarity and colour accuracy. The two aspherical elements are used to correct spherical aberrations and distortion for improved sharpness and accurate rendering. This lens is a flexible telephoto zoom distinguished by its bright design and advanced optics. The constant f/2.8 maximum aperture suits working in difficult lighting environments and enables greater control over the depth of field. A sophisticated optical design comprises a series of specialized elements, which help to suppress a variety of aberrations throughout the zoom range for well-controlled imagery. An Air Sphere Coating has been applied to suppress flare and ghosting when working in strong lighting environments. Balancing the distinguished optical assets is the Dual Nano USM focus system, which offers fast, nearly silent autofocus performance with a full-time manual focus override. An Image Stabilizer compensates for up to five stops of camera shake to help produce sharper handheld shots in difficult lighting environments. A unique Control Ring is integrated into the lens design for intuitive control over exposure settings from the lens itself. Also, this 70-200mm is weather-sealed and has a fluorine coating to protect the front and rear elements.
An Optical Image Stabilizer helps to minimise the appearance of camera shake by five stops to better enable working in low-light environments and with slower shutter speeds. Three distinct IS modes are available: standard single-shot mode, a panning-optimized mode, and a mode that only activates the Image Stabilizer during the exposure. The Dual Nano USM system utilizes both a ring-type USM and an STM mechanism to realise quick and accurate focusing that is smooth and nearly silent to suit both photography and video applications. This focusing system also affords full-time manual focus control when working in the one-shot AF mode. The Configurable Control Ring can be used to adjust a variety of exposure settings, including aperture, ISO, and exposure compensation. The protective fluorine coating has been applied to the front and rear elements to resist fingerprints and smudges and to make cleaning these elements significantly easier. As a member of the esteemed L-series, this lens has a weather-resistant design that protects against moisture and dust to enable its use in inclement conditions.
The bright f/2.8 constant maximum aperture maintains consistent illumination throughout the zoom range and suits working in low-light environments as well as affords increased control over depth of field for working with selective focus techniques. This lens offers a rounded nine-blade diaphragm that contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
