Our thoughts

I really like this lens; it has a really good look and reminds me of the fantastic Canon long prime lenses.

It has good stabilisation, which is really handy on a lens of this length for taking out a bit of hand held shake! Its worth remembering to switch it off when your on sticks though as you occasionally it can jitter whilst panning.

If you have the distance and enough light to stop down it works great for faces.

Detailed Features

Take a more detailed look into the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM

L-series quality

The L-series is Canon’s flagship professional lens range, representing the best in precision-designed EF optics. L-series lenses combine superior performance with superlative handling, and are resistant to dust and moisture.

Fast, constant maximum aperture

Shoot hand held in low light conditions thanks to a fast f/2.8 maximum aperture, which stays constant throughout the zoom range. Such an aperture also gives a photographer control over depth of field.

Image Stabilizer

Canon’s four-stop Image Stabilizer (IS) makes the EF 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II USM ideal for shooting in low light conditions when using a tripod is not possible. The IS system allows shutter speeds up to four stops slower than normal to be used without causing image blur.

Fluorite and ultra-low dispersion (UD) lens elements

The lens features elements made from fluorite, which reduce chromatic aberration. Five UD (ultra-low dispersion) elements are used to ensure high contrast and natural colour reproduction throughout the zoom range.

Smooth background blur

A virtually circular aperture diaphragm gives out of focus regions a softer, more uniform feel. Sharp foreground objects stand out against a smooth blurred background.

Ultrasonic focusing

A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting. Furthermore, full-time manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.

Accessories

The lens is supplied as standard with the ET-87 lens hood to prevent glare affecting images, as well as a removable tripod mount and soft case.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) June 2020 update

We are open for business but have altered the way we work to maintain a safe working environment. As a small but resilient company and we are always happy to tailor our services to your specific requirements.

Here is an update about the procedures and facilities we have put in place.

Studios

Our studios have fresh air ventilation systems which provide a constant supply of fresh air as opposed to a recirculation system. They are also quiet enough to run whilst recording sound

We have just installed a dual internet system that runs on fast 5G in addition to fibre broadband so that we can offer a very robust internet connection for live video streaming etc.

We can provide a reliable online video stream from the studios so that your client can monitor the shoot remotely

There is remote audio and video monitoring provided from the studio to the client room and both dressing rooms for Studio 1 and to the client room for Studio 2. Studio 1 also have a microphone set up in the green room so that you can communicate remotely via the PA

We have opened a roof garden in addition to the private yard so we can offer clients more outdoor ancillary space

Safe equipment handling

All equipment supplied by SLV is made safe using a combination of quarantining, disinfection, UV-C light and ozone sanitising

Our staff members wear appropriate PPE whilst handling equipment

Workstations are being sanitised before and after use

Our vans are sanitised before and after use

Studio sanitation

Hand santiser is provided on main entry to the premises and around the building

We ask that crew and clients arrive with their own PPE, however we have it available to purchase if required

Everyone, including SLV staff, entering the premises will have their temperature measured and we reserve the right to refuse entry of anyone displaying symptoms of Covid -19

Client facing staff wears PPE

The Studio 1 showers are still available to use however we ask that people bring their own towels

Studio 1 and studio 2 are to use separate toilets and kitchen facilities provided if both are in use on the same day

We are currently limiting the maximum number of people inside each studio space to 10 people for Studio 1 and 3 people for Studio 2. We also have displayed a limit for the number of people in each specific area

We ask that gaffers and sparks wear gloves and masks when appropriate

The premises are being santised at the end of each working day

We know that things are very difficult in our industry right now, however we would like to reassure our clients that we are here to help get the industry back on its feet.

Take care and hope to see you soon,

SLV Team
