The EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM employs Canon's famous rear-focus telephoto optical design that delivers outstanding picture quality throughout its entire shooting range - even at middle and close distances. And like its high-end siblings, this lens also uses two ultra-low dispersion (UD) glass elements to ensure maximum image sharpness and accurate color fidelity; and Canon's advanced ultrasonic focusing motor (USM) and rear focusing design for silent, high speed autofocusing.

The new 200mm f/2.8L II USM lets you get up close and personal, and still keep your distance.
