A staple in many a wildlife, wedding and sports photographer's kitbag, the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 IS III USM lens is a great lens known for its versatility. With a fixed maximum aperture of f/2.8, the Canon 70-200mm allows you to capture a beautifully shallow depth-of-field no matter which focal length you're shooting at.
The Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 also has image stabilization of 3.5 stops, which means that you can capture sharp handheld photos at shutter speeds that would have otherwise produced camera shake and blur. The lens' USM engine also helps to provide a pleasantly fast autofocus that works as quietly as possible to avoid drawing attention to yourself.
