The lens features 8 aperture blades. The filter size is 67mm. The Canon EF 70-200mm F4L USM is pretty compact for a moderate aperture tele zoom with a size of 76x172mm and a weight of 705g so unlike its f/2.8 brothers and sisters it doesn’t feel like a brick in your camera bag. Adding the barrel-shaped hood increases the length substantially.
The Canon EF-S 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 IS AF speed and accuracy is actually pretty good and the noise level during operations remains on a very low level. According to Canon the newly developed Image Stabilization system of Canon EF-S 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 IS is good enough for a “gain” equivalent to up to 4 f-stops.
The Canon EF 200mm F 2.8L is a very good to excellent lens in all optical and mechanical aspects. As to be expected the performance decreases when combining the lens with a Canon EF 1.4x II converters but generally the results remain very good here.
Canon TS-E 24mm F 3.5L high-precision glass molded aspherical and UD glass lens elements and accurate aspherical GMo along with a large diameter. It delivers outstanding image quality, high resolution and super-low distortion to all edges of the image. The lens incorporates a new type of anti-reflection coating, Canon’s SubWavelength structure Coating (SWC) that continuously changes the refractive index on the lens surface via wedge-shaped structures more minute than wavelength of visible light.
Canon EF 50mm f1.4has always taken an unstable spot in the Canon line-up because of its opponent Sigma’s 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM which comes up in an advanced optical design and a little higher price than Canon EF 50mm f1.4. Canon EF 50mm f1.4 has 50mm focal length; fast F1.4 maximum aperture and Micro-type USM autofocus with full-time manual override which serve as the main highlights of its features. Canon EF 50mm f1.4 is included in Canon’s mid range of primes which is made with a good quality. Its lens is made up of metal while the barrel is made up of plastic.
