Canon launches EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM Mk II
The inclusion of the fluorite element is an important aspect of the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM Mk II, as the IS version of the 70-200mm f/4 IS is noticeably sharper than the non-IS version by incorporating a fluorite element. We can only wait for test images to come in at this moment. Meanwhile, legions of fans may be disappointed to learn that the new lens is not lighter than its predecessor – at 1.49 kg. Ouch!
