After a lapse of 8 years, Canon’s 70-20mm f/2.8L IS finally ushered in another update. The 3rd generation EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS enables a new coating style and is further optimized for optical performance.

The biggest change in the optical design of the camera is the introduction of a new ASC coating that further enhances the lens’s anti-glare capability. Based on the original good image, the improvement of the new generation lens mainly allows the new lens to maintain better stability under different shooting conditions, and reduce the influence of glare and other factors.
Appearance & Control
First look at the appearance, the biggest change in the new generation of Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM is the color of the body of the mirror. The white color of the new lens is cooler, and it is significantly different from the previous two-generation products. Therefore, the two-generation lens can be well distinguished from the color alone.
In terms of handling, the control interface of the new generation EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM lens is exactly the same as that of the previous generation. From the focus to the anti-shake function selection, users familiar with the previous generation can easily get started with this new generation of 3 lenses. To complete the operation and shooting.
As far as I am concerned, I don’t use this lens a lot. My dad prefers to use this lens.
