Additional information:

The Canon EF 80-200 mm f/ 4.5-5.6 II  is a very light and compact telephoto zoom lens for Canon EOS film and SLR cameras.

Despite its attractive price, the Canon EF 80-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II has a number of shortcomings:

  1. Unreliable plastic build.  Fit and finish of low quality.
  2. Image contrast is not above the average. It is really sharp only from f/8.0.
  3. There is a considerable fall of resolution on the edges.
  4. No USM. Slow and rather noisy built-in micro-motor.
  5. It is very soft when wide open, especially at 160-200 mm.
  6. There are some pronounced effects of chromatic aberration, distortion and vignetting.

Nevertheless, the Canon EF 80-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II has some advantages subsequent upon its shortcomings:

  1. Extremely compact and light for a telephoto zoom lens.  Convenient for traveling.
  2. Due to a soft picture it may be limitedly used as a portrait lens when wide open.
  3. Very inexpensive for  an autofocus lens!

The Canon EF 80-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II can be recommended for beginners. With the help of this lens you can determine what focal lengths are necessary for you, as well as those the most frequently used. Then you should take a serious decision on quality : whether you will choose something like the Canon EF 70-200 Lf/4 or buy prime lenses for  your favorite focal lengths.
