Digital Camera World - - IN FOCUS -

LEAD­ING the way in Canon’s can­non up­grades is the flag­ship EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM. It’s an un­der­stated up­grade, with the same con­struc­tion (23 el­e­ments in 19 groups) as its pre­de­ces­sor, a weight sav­ing of just 10g and just 3.5 stops of im­age sta­bil­i­sa­tion. It gets Air Sphere Coat­ing to re­duce flar­ing and ghost­ing. The price at its Au­gust launch is £2,149/$2,099.

The EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM is a more no­table up­grade, with a new Im­age Sta­biliser that’s said to be based on the de­sign of the one in­side the EF 100400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM, giv­ing five stops of shake re­duc­tion in con­trast with the three stops of its pre­de­ces­sor. Ex­pect to pay £1,299/$1,299 at launch.
