The Canon EF 200 f/2.8 L USM is one of the most affordable ways to get incredible eye popping portraits and details from a long Canon prime lens. With a fast aperture and a superior build quality commensurate with the L Series, the 200 f/2.8 gets you close to the action while conceding nothing in picture quality. Its quick and reliable auto-focus make it suitable for sports or, if you have enough distance, fashion portraits.
In this video, photographer Danny Russo takes his 200 mm to an unexpected venue – an NYC cathedral – and shows us how he uses the 200 to capture the details that often get lost in the bigger picture.
