Full frame lens for canon 5d (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Hi. I have just bought a canon 5d mark ii. I want a full frame lens in the 200mm range but i am struggling to know which one to buy. I currently have a canon 18_200mm on a 50d. It is very good quality so want a lens that is similar. Any suggestions where to look?


The Canon 200mm F2.8L is a great lens and not too pricey - especially for a used one. Having said that 200mm on a Full Frame will make subjects appear much smaller than you are used to with your 50D and 18-200, so also look into the Canon 300mm F4 L IS. Note Turn off the IS on this lens it works much better this way.

Happy deciding.
