On 5th of January, 2010, Canon launched a successor to its product line of EF Lens lineup category, in the form of Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM. Although this product is quite similar to its predecessors, the new lens has improved optical design, which has a fluorite element and 5 UD elements for the correction of chromatic aberrations. Traditionally, this lens features a dust and drip proof construction, just like the other products in the L series product line. The magnification has been increased to up to 0.21 times, whereas the minimum focus distance has been reduced down to 1.2 meters. In terms of its external mechanical design, a wider modified focusing ring has been introduced. In terms of compatibility, this product is compatible with the Canon’s extension tubes and the teleconverters. The rubber focusing grip has also been redesigned and widened, with finely-patterned grooves making it easier to manually focus.
