Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L lenses

introduction

  • these pro zoom levels are the more compact workhorse lenses for those who cannot afford or do not want to carry the heavier, larger, more expensive Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L lenses, but does have some better features than that lens - closer focus, much more effective image stabiliser, 9 blades instead of 8 for improved sunstars, half the weight, and just over half the price.
