Canon to Unveil Two Luxury Lenses at Photo Plus Expo 2007

Canon EF200mm f/2L IS USM and EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM Telephoto Lenses

Canon USA will unveil two new lenses on Thursday at the PhotoPlus Expo happening at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City, October 18 to 20.

The all-new lenses, the EF200mm f/2L IS USM, top, and the EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM, are designed for use with Canon EOS SLR cameras.

Canon said the EF200mm f/2L IS USM and EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM, both of which are L (luxury)-series lenses incorporating a high-performance Image Stabilizer, feature optical systems utilizing special optical materials such as fluorite to correct chromatic aberrations, making possible high-resolution, high-contrast shooting performance.

The large aperture EF200mm f/2L IS USM is for users who seek a brighter lens for portraiture and indoor sports photography. The EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM, on the other hand, was designed in response to requests from users working in the fields of sports and news photography who want a high-performance lens with a longer focal length.
