Our Verdict

At 780g this lens is lightweight for a telephoto zoom – and with a fixed wide aperture of f/4 throughout the range, it is a fantastic option for when discretion, quick focusing and clear results are required – what more could you wish for street photography?

The ergonomics are second-to-none – we love the manual focus-ring that allows for fine adjustments to be made to the focus points, and the ergonomic design not only makes it user-friendly, but feels sturdy too. 

We Love

  • Flexible 70-200mm zoom range
  • Fixed maximum aperture f / 4
  • 5 stops of Image stabilisation
  • Ring-shaped USM focus
  • lightweight at 780 g
