Canon unveils prototypes of two new telephoto EF lenses


Canon Inc

Canon Inc. today announces the development of two new telephoto lenses for use with its EOS SLR cameras: the EF200mm f/2L IS USM and the EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM. Classed as professional L lenses, both the new Canon EF200mm f/2L IS USM and EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM incorporate a high-performance Image Stabilizer, along with special optical materials such as fluorite to correct chromatic aberrations and offer the highest levels of resolution and contrast when using these lenses.With its large f/2 aperture, the EF200mm f/2L IS USM targets photographers who seek a brighter lens for portraiture and indoor sports photography. The EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM, which will deliver telephoto performance surpassing the current EF 600mm f/4L IS USM lens, is being developed in response to requests from professional sports and news photographers for a high-performance lens that offers a longer focal distance.Additional information on these lenses will be available in the early part of 2008 or visit www.canon.co.uk
