The longstanding favorite telephoto lens from Canon. This one is a classic with its four UD-glass elements to correct chromatic aberrations and a constant aperture of 2.8 throughout. Whether you're setting up an interview and want to push the background out of focus, or need those extra millimeters to shoot from far off, this is the lens for you.

This is a lens which can truly be described as a professional workhorse, with robust build (including dust and moisture resistance), wide F2.8 maximum aperture, fast and silent ultrasonic autofocus motor, and optical image stabilization for hand-holding at slow shutter speeds. The optical design is somewhere on the far side of complex; it features 23 elements in 18 groups, with 4 UD elements to provide compensation for chromatic aberration. According to Canon, this gives a 'high-resolution, high-contrast optical capability', as demanded from a lens which needs to perform all day, every day in the hands of professional photographers across a wide range of subjects and conditions.
