EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM





Thank you for purchasing a Canon product.

Dedicated to EOS cameras, the Canon EF70-

200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens is a highperformance telephoto zoom lens equipped with an Image Stabilizer.

• “IS” stands for Image Stabilizer.

• “USM” stands for Ultrasonic Motor.


1. The Image Stabilizer gives the equivalent effect of a shutter speed four stops faster*.

2. With fluorite and UD lens elements, outstanding image delineation is obtained.

3. Ultrasonic motor (USM) for quick and quiet

6. The lens is compatible with Extender EF1.4X ll and EF2X ll.

7. Tight seal structure ensures excellent dustproof and drip-proof performance.

To prevent condensation in this case, first put the lens into an airtight plastic bag before taking it from a cold to warm environment. Then take out the lens after it has warmed gradually. Do the same when taking the lens from a warm environment into a cold one.

• Do not leave the lens in excessive heat such as in a car in direct sunlight.

High temperatures can cause the lens to malfunction.

• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.

• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

This Class B digital apparatus complies with Canadian ICES-003.

1. Mounting and Detaching the Lens

See your camera’s instructions for details on mounting and detaching the lens.

The lens mount has a rubber ring for enhanced water- and dust-resistance. The rubber ring may cause slight abrasions around the camera's lens mount, but this will not cause any problems. If the rubber ring becomes worn, it is replaceable by a

Canon Service Center at cost.

• After detaching the lens, place the lens with the rear end up to prevent the lens surface and electrical contacts from getting scratched.

• If the contacts get soiled, scratched, or have fingerprints on them, corrosion or faulty connections can result. The camera and lens may not operate properly.


• If the contacts get soiled or have fingerprints on

Y them, clean them with a soft cloth.

• If you remove the lens, cover it with the dust cap. To attach it properly, align the lens mount index and the

K index of the dust cap as shown in the diagram, and turn clockwise. To remove it, reverse the order.

To shoot in autofocus (AF) mode, set the focus mode switch to AF.

To use only manual focusing (MF), set the focus mode switch to MF, and focus by turning the focusing ring. The focusing ring always works,

After autofocusing in ONE SHOT AF mode, focus manually by pressing the shutter button halfway and turning the focusing ring. (Full-time manual focus)


4. Zooming

To zoom, turn the zoom ring.

Be sure to finish zooming before focusing.

Zooming after focusing can affect the focus.

To remove the hood, hold down the button on the side and turn the hood in the direction of the arrow until the position mark on the hood aligns with the red dot.

The hood can be reverse-mounted on the lens for storage.

• Part of the picture may be blocked if the hood is not attached properly.

• When attaching or detaching the hood, grasp the base of the hood to turn it. To prevent deformation, do not grasp the rim of the hood to turn it.


6. Image Stabilizer Settings

You can use the image stabilizer in AF or MF mode.

Set the STABILIZER switch to .

• If you are not going to use the image stabilizer function, set the switch to .

• MODE 1: Corrects vibrations in all directions. It is mainly


• MODE 2: It compensates for vertical camera shake during following shots in a horizontal direction, and compensates for horizontal camera shake during following shots in a vertical direction.

When you press the shutter button halfway, the Image

Stabilizer will start operating.

• Make sure the image in the viewfinder is stable, then press the shutter button the rest of the way down to take the picture.


7. Tips on Using the Image Stabilizer

The image stabilizer in this lens is effective for hand-held shots under the following conditions.

• In locations where flash photography is prohibited, such as art museums and theater stages.

• In situations where your footing is uncertain.

• In situations where fast shutter settings cannot be used.

• Use a red filter when you take the picture.


10. Using the Tripod Mount

Adjusting the Revolving Mount

You can loosen the orientation lock-knob on the tripod mount to allow it to rotate as needed to fit a particular camera model for switching between vertical and horizontal positions.


First remove the lens from the camera and then remove the tripod mount from the lens as shown below. To attach the tripod mount, reverse the procedure.



Loosen the orientation locking knob.

Rotate the tripod mount and align the mounting indicator on the tripod mount with the one on the lens.

Slide off the tripod collar away from the rear of the lens.


11. Filters

13. Extension Tubes

(Sold separately)

You can attach filters to the filter mounting thread on the front of the lens.

You can attach Extension Tube EF12 II or EF25

II for magnified shots. The shooting distance and magnification are shown below.

• If you need a polarizing filter, use the Canon

Circular Polarizing Filter (77mm).

• To adjust the polarizing filter, first remove the lens hood.

14. Extenders

(Sold separately)

With Extender EF1.4X ll or EF2X ll attached, the lens specifications will change as follows:

20°50’ – 7°20’



13°40’ – 5°10’


• First attach the Extender to the lens, then attach the lens to the camera. Detach it from the camera in the reverse order. If you attach the lens to the camera first, misoperation may occur.


• If you use an Extender on the lens mounted on a EOS A2/A2E/5, set the exposure compensation to -1/2 stop for the EF1.4X ll or -1 stop for the EF2X ll.

• Autofocusing is still enabled with Extender EF1.4X II/EF2X ll attached.

• When an Extender is attached, the AF speed will become slower by design to retain proper

AF control.
