A Review of the Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM Lens

A 70-200mm f/2.8 lens is one of the most versatile and popular lenses among professionals and amateurs alike, and while they are certainly not cheap, they are powerful tools that can handle a wide range of situations from sports, to portraits, to weddings. This excellent video review takes a look at Canon’s mirrorless version of the lens, the RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM.

Coming to you from Dustin Abbott, this great video review takes a look at the Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM lens. The RF 70-200mm f/2.8L has a major design departure from its DSLR predecessors in that the barrel retracts and extends when zooming, allowing it to be quite compact when not in use. Beyond that, it has all the advanced features you would expect, including one UD (Ultra-Low Dispersion) element and one Super UD element for reduced aberrations, two aspherical elements for reduced distortion and increased sharpness, Air Sphere Coating for reduced flares and ghosting and increased contrast, image stabilization of up to five stops, quick and quiet autofocus system, customizable Control Ring, rounded nine-blade diaphragm for better bokeh, and extensive weather protection. Check out the video above for Abbott’s full thoughts.
