Overview

Description by Canon:
 
LENS DISCONTINUED 
 
Three UD-glass elements eliminate secondary spectrum for sharp images at all apertures

The world's fastest 200mm telephoto lens. Three UD-glass elements eliminate secondary spectrum for sharp images at all apertures. The optics have been designed to give excellent background blur. Try it with the maximum aperture's shallow depth of field.

Reviews

"My mint, high serial number, $4,600 Canon EF 200mm f/1.8 L USM Lens arrived safely - and quickly after a short stop in customs. My understanding is that this lens originally cost about $4,500 but was selling for as little as $3,400 before it was discontinued in 2003 (more about this later).
