Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L and f/4L | Pre-Production Hands-On
New EF 70-200mm lenses - improved performance
It’s easy to emphasise pin-sharp subjects against a silky smooth out of focus background, thanks to the lens’s wide f/2.8 maximum aperture and 8-bladed circular diaphragm. Even at wide apertures, image quality is good enough for the highest resolution EOS cameras.
Low light? No problem. A 3.5-stop Image Stabilizer compensates for blur due to camera shake. A fast f/2.8 maximum aperture – constant throughout the zoom range – lets in twice as much light as an f/4 lens.
Fluorite and UD optics deliver high contrast and excellent resolution, capturing intricate detail whatever focal length you’re using. ASC and Super Spectra lens coatings combat ghosting and flare when shooting into the light.
Whether you’re shooting pitch-side action or twilight landscapes, Canon’s legendary L-series build quality gives you confidence to keep shooting whatever the weather. Fluorine-coated front and rear elements are easy to clean, while protective seals guard against dust and moisture.
A ring-type USM motor focuses very quickly, letting you track fast-moving objects around the frame. You can make manual adjustments at any time, just by turning the focus ring.
Air Sphere Coating (ASC): Effectively limits ghosting and flare
ASC (Air Sphere Coating) is a lens coating technology developed to enhance the anti-reflective properties of photographic lenses. Lens coating technologies developed by Canon include Super Spectra Coating for reduced ghosting and flare and consistent color balance, and the groundbreaking SWC (Subwavelength Structure Coating) that significantly increases antireflective effectiveness against light entering the lens at high angles of incidence. Used in conjunction with SWC, new ASC technology functions to further reduce the occurrence of ghosting and flare.

Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photo Video act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
