Canon makes 5 different 70-200mm lenses. This is the mark II version of one with the big f/2.8 aperture AND image stabilization. Rent it and experience the lens that has improved one of the most-professionally-used lenses available. The EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II USM increases auto-focus performance and optical quality over the previous version while maintaining all of the characteristics that have made it legendary. It features one fluorite and five UD elements for increased optical quality and reduced chromatic aberration. The minimum focusing distance has been reduced to 3.9ft so it is useful in smaller spaces. The image stabilizer provides up to 4 stops of correction at all focal lengths so you can blur caused by camera shake at longer shutter speeds.
This is one of the most popular lenses to rent. People use if for everything including weddings, portraits, sports, fashion, wildlife, and events.
This is the best 70-200mm lens for sports, especially indoor sports, because it has the largest aperture and the fastest focus. The largest possible aperture lets in the most light which enables you to stop the action with fast shutter speeds. The extremely responsive auto-focus lets you follow fast moving subjects. Indoor sports venues such as arenas and gymnasiums often have poor light for photography. This lens with a newer model camera (such as a Canon 7D mark II) should enable photos at 1/400th second and a clean image at ISO 3200. In a well lit venue, shutter speeds of 1/500th to 1/1000th are possible without a flash.
