DPR has completed their review of the new EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II.
The review is very favorable outside of their opinion of the bokeh. I didn’t find it all that pleasing either.
Overall, then, the EF 70-200mm F2.8 L IS II USM gains about as close as it gets to an unqualified recommendation, given the price. Its combination of exceptional optics and quirk-free design even manages to surpass Nikon’s equivalent that we tested recently, stealing the crown of ‘Best in Class’ by a whisker. It’s a significant improvement over what was already an accomplished lens, capable of consistently delivering results that will satisfy the most demanding of users, and you can’t ask for much more than that.
