Canon has just released its professional flagship Zoom EF 70-200mm F2.8L IS III USM version III. The most important innovation consists of an enhanced Super Spectra Coating in conjunction with a new ASC (Air Sphere Coating), which should provide significantly less reflections (less flare susceptibility). Here are the launch videos:
The image stabilizer and most of the other technical elements seem to have been adopted from its predecessor. The Canon EF 70-200mm F2.8L IS III USM has become slightly lighter at 1,480 g. All other key data such as filter diameter (77mm), fins (9), readjustment limit (1.2m) etc. agree with the predecessor.
The Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM will be available from the end of August for 2.299,- Euro. Canon thus reduced the EIA by EUR 100 compared to its predecessor.
