Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens

Improving upon one of the most celebrated lenses in the Canon EF line is no easy feat, but Canon has done just that. The EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM increases the speed, performance and optical quality of the EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS USM while maintaining all of the characteristics that have made it a legend for professionals and advanced amateurs alike. The EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM features one fluorite and five UD elements for increased optical quality and reduced chromatic aberration. It has a minimum focusing distance of 1.2m/3.9 ft. at all zoom settings, which is useful for photographers in smaller spaces trying to get closer to a subject. It features a next-generation Optical Image Stabilizer, providing up to 4 stops of correction at all focal lengths. And as with all L-series lenses, the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM is dust- and moisture-resistant and designed for use in the challenging environments typical of rigorous professional use.

Picked up this lens recently to replace my mark1 version. It was an amazing lens and this updated version is even better. I use this lens for every thing from nature photography to portrait work. It is an extremely fast lens as well. Silent autofocus. Very strong build quality and very sturdy. A well weighted lens as well, but not too heavy for an all day shoot.
If you are looking for a flexible lens and a great addition to your gear bag, this lens is for you.
Pros: Fast Auto-Focus, Beautiful Colors/Contrast, Good Low-Light Performance, quiet auto-focus
