    EF70-200mm F2.8L IS USM  
    The Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM is a
    high-performance, telephoto zoom lens
    dedicated to Canon EOS cameras. It is equipped
    with an Image Stabilizer to help preventing blurred
    shots due to camera shake during slow shutter
    In the lens name, IS stands for Image
    Stabilizer, and USM for Ultrasonic Motor.
    aHandling Cautions
    If the lens is taken from a cold environment into
    a warm one, condensation may develop on the
    lens surface and internal parts. To prevent
    condensation in this case, first put the lens into
    an airtight plastic bag before taking it from a cold
    to warm environment. Then take out the lens
    after it has warmed gradually. Do the same when
    taking the lens from a warm environment into a
    cold one. Features
    1. The four UD elements help capture very sharp
    and clear pictures with outstanding image
    2. The Image Stabilizer gives the equivalent effect of a shutter speed three stops faster.
    3. Ultrasonic motor (USM) for fast, quiet focusing.
    4. Manual focusing enabled during AF (autofocusing).
    5. A truly round aperture hole results in a nicer background blur.
    6. Compatible with Extenders.
    7. Sealed construction for higher resistance against dust and moisture.

    entitled “Digital Apparatus”, ICES-003 of the Industry
    This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules.
    Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1)
    This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2)
    this device must accept any interference received,

    •Numbers in parentheses indicate reference page numbers.  
    ENG-4 See your camera’s instructions for details on
    mounting and detaching the lens.
    •After detaching the lens, put it down with the
    contacts upwards, to avoid damaging the
    contacts or lens surface.
    • If the contacts are dirty, scratched, or soiled with
    fingerprints, etc., corrosion or a faulty
    connection or operation may result.
    Always attach the dust cap to the lens whenever it
    is not mounted on the camera. To attach the dust
    cap, align the mark on the dust cap with the mark
    on the lens and turn the dust cap clockwise. To
    remove the dust cap, turn it counterclockwise.
    1. Mounting and Detaching the Lens
    The lens mount has a rubber ring for enhanced
    w ater- and dust-resistance. The rubber ring may
    cause slight abrasions around the cameras lens
    mount, but this will not cause any problems. If the
    ru bber ring becomes worn, it is replaceable by a
    Canon Service Center at cost.  
    •Before switching the focusing distance range,
    turn the focusing ring so that the current
    focusing distance is within the focusing distance
    r ange you want to switch to.
    • If the current focusing distance is not within the
    focusing distance range you switch to, the lens
    f ocusing may first stop at the start of the
    f ocusing range. This is normal and not a
    malfunction. Just press the shutter button
    halfway again to resume normal autofocusing.
    Y ou can set the focusing distance range to 
    1.4 m/4.6 ft. to infinity or 2.5 m/8.2 ft. to infinity.
    By setting the suitable focusing distance range,
    the actual autofocusing time can be shorter.
    3.Switching the Focusing
    Distance Range
    If you are going to take pictures using autofocus,
    set the focus mode switch to  .
    To  focus manually, set the focus mode switch to 
    and turn the focusing ring.
    2. Setting the Focus Mode  
    5. Focusing Ring
    The focusing ring can be used at any time
    regardless of the focus mode.
    •After autofocusing with the camera in ONE SHOT AF
    mode, you can adjust the focus by keeping the shutter
    button pressed halfway and turning the focusing ring.
    4. Zooming
    To  z oom, turn the zoom ring.
    • Be sure to finish zooming before focusing.
    Zooming after focusing can affect the focus.
    •F or flash pictures, use an external, EOS-
    dedicated Speedlite instead of the cameras
    b uilt-in flash. The long lens may partially
    obstruct the light of the built-in flash.  
    The image stabilizer function can be used in both  and  focus modes.
    6. Image Stabilizer Settings
    Select the stabilizer mode.
    •Select MODE 1 for standard
    photography. MODE 1 corrects
    all vibrations no matter
    whether the camera is being
    held horizontally, vertically, or
    at an angle.
    •T o pan a moving subject,
    select MODE 2.
    MODE 2 corrects vibrations
    and shaking only in the
    direction at right angles to the
    camera’s panning movement.
    Press the shutter button
    down halfway to check the
    • Make sure the image in the
    viewfinder is stable, then press
    the shutter button all the way
    down to take pictures.
    Set the STABILIZER switch
    to .
    •If you are not going to use the
    image stabilizer function, set
    the switch to         .  
    7. Tips on Using the Image Stabilizer
    qIn semi-darkened areas such as indoors or
    outdoors at night.
    w In locations where flash photography is
    prohibited, such as art museums and theater
    e In situations where fast shutter settings
    cannot be used.
    r In situations where your footing is uncertain. q
    When panning subjects in motion.
    w When following subjects that are moving
    *W e recommend MODE 1 for all other situations.
    ●MODE 1 ●MODE 2
    The image stabilizer function is particularly effective for hand-held photography in the following
    Tips on Using the Image Stabilizer
    •The Image Stabilizer cannot compensate for a
    blurred shot caused by a subject that moved.
    • Set the STABILIZER switch to  when you
    are taking pictures using the Bulb setting (long
    exposures). If the STABILIZER switch is set to
    , the image stabilizer function may introduce
    • The Image Stabilizer might not be fully effective
    in the following cases:
    • You move the camera for a panned shot.
    • You shoot while riding on a bumpy road.
    • Compared to using a normal non-IS lens, fewer
    shots can be taken when you use an Image
    Stabilizer lens because more power is
    • The image stabilizer operates for about two
    seconds even when your finger is off the shutter
    button. Do not remove the lens while the
    stabilizer is in operation. This will cause a
    •W ith the EOS-1V/HS, 3, 30/33/Elan7/7E,
    30V/33V/Elan7N/7NE, Elan ll/Elan ll E/50/50 E,
    300/Rebel2000, IX, and D30, the Image
    Stabilizer will not work during self-timer
    • When you use a tripod, the Image Stabilizer
    should be turned off to save battery power.
    • The stabilizer is equally effective for hand-held
    photography and photography with a monopod.
    • The Image Stabilizer function also operates
    when the lens is used with the EF12 II or EF25
    II Extension Tube, and the EF1.4X II or EF2X II
    • If you set the camera’s Custom Function to
    change the assigned button to operate the AF,
    the Image Stabilizer will operate when you press
    the newly assigned AF button.
