2 New Canon Lenses

Canon also revamped two of their 70-200mm lenses. The only question is, are they revamped enough to warrant the hike in price? Personally I think that the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III is well priced compared ot the competition. Check them out at the links below.

Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM – $1,299.00

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM – $2,099.00

LENS HOOD ET-78B – $55.00
