TheCanon EF 200mm f/2.8L II USMis remarkable for its high-quality image, light weight and a rather low price for a prime lens of this lineup.

It delivers rather high sharpness in the corners even when wide open, and it gets even sharper at f/5.6. Slight vignetting visible  at f/2.8 is eliminated by stopping.
