A lightweight, high quality zoom lens, the EF70-200mm f/4L USM lens adds a telephoto range to any photographer’s kitbag.

Who is it for?

This lens can often be found being used for a variety of different subjects from portraits to landscapes, wildlife and sports. It provides one of the most useful focal ranges for general photography beyond the standard range.

Key features

  • Lens construction: 16 elements in 13 groups
  • Diagonal angle of view: 34°-12°
  • Focus adjustment: USM
  • Closest focusing distance: 1.2m
  • Filter size: 67mm


The constant f/4 maximum aperture keeps the lens compact and lightweight making it very suitable to travelling with. It will produce high quality results without weighing you down.

At the ‘wide’ end of 70mm, it provides a natural perspective that’s great for portraits. Zooming in towards 200mm provides perspective compression with the telephoto effect to make subjects appear much closer together than they really are. At only 705g, it is easy to carry and quick to handle in fast moving situations.

Featuring a constant f/4 maximum aperture, and a ring-type USM autofocus motor, this lens will work well even when the light levels start to fall. With one fluorite element and two ultra-low dispersion (UD) elements, image quality is high with well-controlled secondary spectrum and minimal aberrations, even rivalling that of the more expensive EF70-200mm f/2.8L USM lens. As a lightweight, easy-to-use telephoto zoom lens for travelling with, the EF70-200mm f/4L USM is an excellent choice.


  • USM autofocus

A ring-type USM autofocus motor means you can focus quickly, near-silently and with precision. It also provides full-time manual focus so that you can adjust the focus with the focus ring, without first having to switch the lens to manual focus. This allows you to adjust the focus accurately to ensure it is exactly where you want it to be for the most creative control possible.

  • Fluorite & UD elements

Featuring a fluorite element and two ultra-low dispersion (UD) elements, the image quality is very high with high contrast and tightly controlled secondary spectrum.
