Canon upgrades L-series lense lineup

Canon has announced an upgrade to two of its most popular and renowned L-series lenses: the EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM and EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM.

"The EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM epitomises the very finest in L-series optical technology, with impressive 5-stop Image Stabilisation in a compact, robust and lightweight design; and the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM offers unbeatable performance, versatility and durability to meet the demands of professional photographers,” said Brendan Maher, product Manager, Canon Australia.

Built on the high standards of its predecessor, the EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM possesses a superior build, durability, and ergonomic design that Canon’s broad lens range is renowned for.

Fluorine coating reduces dirt and water drops clinging to the lens, and Super Spectra coatings eliminate ghosting and flare. The upgraded EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM also incorporates a new Image Stabiliser unit which delivers the equivalent effect of a shutter five-stops faster, compared to the previous lens's three-stops.

Meanwhile, the new EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM has been designed with high-performance and robustness in mind. Canon say it's ideal for a photographer who requires a high-quality telephoto lens for accurate detail and that the lenses' protective seals make it an obvious choice for challenging conditions.

The new EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM also includes Air Sphere Coating, an anti-reflective technology developed by Canon to minimise reflections and flare.

The EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM and the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM will ship from the end of June and early August, respectively

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
