In addition to the powerful f2.8 version, Canon yesterday introduced a new version of its compact EF 70-200mm with f4: The Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM. Compared to the previous version, version 2 has a much stronger image stabilizer, which Canon indicates with 5 levels (previously 4).
Another new feature of the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM is the shorter minimum focusing distance of 1m. In addition, the panel has been overhauled and now has more than 9 slats with one slat, which should benefit the Bokeh.
Also important for users of the predecessor version is the indication of the changed filter diameter, which has now grown to 72mm. Accordingly, the weight of the EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM has increased slightly to 780 g.
The Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM will be available from end of June this year for 1.399,- Euro (RRP).
