70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM in my hands thanks to has come through for me again as I think I’m one of the first consumers to actually own their own personal copy of the all-new 70-200 f/2.8L IS II USM lens! I took advantage of their special offer to purchase this lens (NEW, not used) and got it much earlier than expected! I have used this lens at the Olympics and showed some pictures in my highly popular sneak peek article which over 40,000 unique visitors read. I also had some pictures take with it in the following articles:

Adorama and B&H are both taking pre-orders, but I don’t believe they have shipped any yet. B&H web site says they are in stock as of this writing, but I’m not expecting that to be the case for long.

Rent before you buy

If you are on the fence about this lens, consider renting it from (it’s under Canon Telephoto) for only $67 for 4 days!


I purchased my 1D Mark IV from them and you can read about that here. They are a rental company but they also sell new gear at reasonable prices and have fast delivery, which is why I use them. They also have a killer Reseller Rating, so you don’t have to worry about them being some shady dealer where the warranty won’t be honored. They get their gear directly from Canon and are totally legit!

More to come.
