September 2010

In August 2010 Canon enhanced its L-series range of professional lenses with the announcement of four lenses – the EF300mm f/2.8L IS II USM, the EF400mm f/2.8L IS II USM, the EF8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM and the EF70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM – plus the EF1.4x III and EF2x III Extenders.

Like many of their illustrious L-series predecessors all of the lenses have been designed to meet the demands of professional photographers by offering a combination of optical excellence, consistently high performance, outstanding image quality, and superb build quality to provide photographers with exceptional results and reliability.

To find out more of the story behind the development of each of the new Canon lenses, and to look more closely at the capabilities of each lens, CPN visited Canon Europe’s HQ in Stockley Park, just outside of London, to film the inside story on the latest L-series lenses. You can click on any of the three movie windows below to watch the L-series lens films.
