Press Release: Canon EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM telephoto lens

Canon today unveils two new professional EF lenses: the EF200mm f/2L IS USM and EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM. Equipped with Canon’s latest 4-stop Image Stabilizer, both models incorporate L-series lens optics and construction to deliver class-leading performance and operability.

With its large f/2 aperture, the EF200mm f/2L IS USM will appeal to photographers who require a brighter lens for indoor sports and portraiture photography. Improvements over the EF200mm f/1.8L USM include a fluorite lens element for better elimination of chromatic aberrations, a circular aperture diaphragm and a significantly lighter, more compact design.

The EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM enhances Canon’s super telephoto range with the longest focal distance of any EF lens on the market. Light enough to allow for handheld shooting, it is expected to be popular with sports, news and wildlife photographers.

Benefiting from UD and fluorite lens elements along with a raft of new optical technologies, both lenses offer professional photographers an exceptional degree of image quality – as standalone lenses and when combined with the Canon EF 1.4x extender.

EF200mm f/2L IS USM Key Features:

  • 4-stop Image Stabilizer with two modes
  • 1 x fluorite and 2 x UD lens elements
  • Ring type USM auto focus with fulltime manual override
  • Circular aperture diaphragm for pleasing background blur
  • Supra Spectra coatings to reduce ghosting and flare
  • Magnesium alloy body – 2.52kg

EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM Key Features:

  • 4-stop Image Stabilizer with 2 modes
  • 2 x fluorite, 1 x UD and 1 x super UD lens elements
  • Ring type USM auto focus with fulltime manual override
  • Circular aperture diaphragm for pleasing background blur
  • Supra Spectra coatings to reduce ghosting and flare
  • Magnesium alloy body – 4.5kg

Both lenses feature environmental seals to protect against dust, rain and humidity.

Pricing and availability:
The EF200mm f/2L IS USM will be available from April 2008 priced at £4499.99 RRP inc. VAT. The EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM will be available from June 2008 priced at £8999.99 RRP inc. VAT
