Do you have your wallet out? If you're on a tight budget, maybe you should skip this post.

Now, if you're already an owner of the f2.8L, you might not immediately jump out of your skin running to Adorama to buy the III because many of the changes are subtle and incremental, but if you hate lens flare, you're now a happy camper.

The upgrades to the f4L are more significant and tempting. Personally, I've never tried the f4, but the improvements seem pretty exciting and would tempt me if I were an owner.

PREORDER NOW: Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS Series III, and the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS Series II

The Canon video below is very informative about the changes to both lenses.

Canon Announces New EF 70-200mm f/2.8L and f/4L Lenses

Via Adorama:

Today, Canon has announced two new lenses: the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS Series III, and the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS Series II. Let's start off with the lens whose predecessor I personally have in my arsenal: the new 70-200mm f/2.8L. The Series II was already my go-to lens for dark wedding ceremonies, studio headshots, and for getting a beautifully compressed wedding portrait.

Now, Canon has gone ahead and added Air Sphere Coating (ASC) to help cut down on sun flare and ghosting, particularly in backlit situations like the ones below. Pair that with the already wildly necessary image stabilization and crystal clear image quality and this lens is sure to be a staple in your camera bag… Read More.

One of the most important accessories for each lens you own. A lens hood provides multiple functions: it shades the lens from stray light, improving your contrast and image quality; in inclement weather, it can assist in keeping moisture or wind-blown debris off the lens; and it protects the front barrel from the inevitable impacts against walls, door frames, and other real-life obstacles. Almost all EF and TS-E lenses have a Canon lens hood engineered specifically for it.

Compatibility:
• EF70-200mm f/4L IS II USM
