The new lenses serve advanced amateur and professional photographers in a variety of applications and solutions including wildlife, landscapes, portrait and sports photography. Canon EF 70-200mm focal-length lenses are a popular option for photographers in need of a long zoom range that maintains a relatively compact design. In addition, these updated lenses inherit the same overall build-quality and ruggedness photographers have come to expect from the Canon EF L-series line of lenses.
“At the core of image capturing, Canon believes the lens is just as important as the camera. A seamless relationship between the two allows photographers to produce emotion-evoking and timeless images,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “Canon is excited to offer photographers two distinct options in the 70-200mm focal-length, continuing to further expand our optics heritage.”
Take a look at the new features below!
The new Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM is an ideal lens for professional photographers who shoot with the Canon 1D and 5D series of DSLR cameras. The inclusion of Air Sphere Coating (ASC) technology helps to reduce flaring and ghosting, and suppresses the reflection of light.
Additional noteworthy features of the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM include:
The Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III is scheduled to begin shipping in August 2018 for an estimated retail price of $2,099.00.
Additional noteworthy features of the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM include:
The Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II is scheduled to begin shipping in late June 2018 with an estimated retail price of $1,299.00.

Quasar Science has released some exciting lighting products that DP’s, Grips, and lighting technicians will love. All of their bulbs are LED powered meaning they are dimmable and are more durable than Kino Flo bulbs while providing nice, even flicker-free lighting.
Do you have an old Kino fixture lying around because you got tired of replacing the bulbs when they break? Just buy some Quasar tubes, throw them in the fixture and you’re good to go. All of Quasar’s light tubes have a milk glass plastic diffuser coating that gives it a nice soft quality and subject falloff like you would expect to find with Kino Flo’s.
These lights are truly the LEGO of the lighting world. You can rig them up like you would Kino Flo’s or you can strip it down to just a bulb and mount it anywhere.
There are five main types of lights Quasar makes. The Q-LED Rainbow Linear Lamps with RGBX comes in either 2′ or 4′ and gives you a color temperature range of 2000 to 6000 Kelvin. They also are able to reproduce a full 360° hue palette for vibrant fully saturated color or mixed with X-fade white light for soft beautiful pastels. Includes color presets for Blue, Cyan, Green, Yellow, Orange, Red, Magenta, and Purple. All Rainbow Lamps are equipped with on-board digital interface giving you command of Intensity, Kelvin, hue & saturation. Each lamp has a built in Lumen Radio CRMX chip for wireless control. The Rainbow can also be wired to DMX via Cat5 I/O Port.
The Q-LED T-8 comes in 2′ or 4′ at either 5600 or 3 Kelvin. The Q-LED Crossfade comes in 1′, 2′, 4′, 6′, and 8′ and offers a changeable color temperature range from 2000 to 6000 Kelvin. They also make a battery powered light called the Q-LED Lithium Ion Battery LED that comes with magnets on either end making it a really handy option to add a hair light, eye light, or adding a little fill without having to run extension cords all over the place. Quasar also makes a line of practical lighting bulbs.
Each light tube comes with a P1G or “PIG” as we are calling it at Texas Media Systems. This plugs into the end of the light and will let you plug the light in to power it. If you are running more than one light together you’ll probably want to pick up the Cluster Power Adapter so you can plug lights into this (depending on the cluster power adapter) and then into your dimmer or the wall. If you are going to be using more than one light and don’t have an old Kino-Flo lying around you may want to consider getting a backplate. These come in 1, 2, and 4 light configurations making it simple to run multiple lights on one stand. We are also carrying the Mathews MQ Mount designed to hold the bulbs with minimal light loss. They are also designed to make it impossible to crush your light.
