My New Canon EF 200mm f/2L IS USM
This is my new Canon EF 200mm f/2L IS USM.
This is a lens I first tried in 2008. It took nine years before I decided to buy one, and it is my third Canon EF super telephoto lens, joining its bigger brothers, the Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM and the Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS USM.
There is a bit of a story behind this lens. I was meant to have it much sooner, except the lens which was dispatched from Canon Australia to my supplier disappeared. Canon had only one more in stock, which was no longer available by the time it was discovered that my lens vanished.
Consequently, a new lens needed to be ordered from Japan, which delayed the acquisition time. Finally, it arrived, and here it is.
At f/2, the bokeh is incredible, and I bought it to shoot it wide-open; to capture the unique look this lens produces.
I am looking forward to exploiting its capabilities.
