Verdict

The EF 200mm f/2.8 L USM II is a very good to excellent lens in all optical and mechanical aspects. As to be expected the performance decreases when combining the lens with a Canon EF 1.4x II converters but generally the results remain very good here. The price tag of the lens is relatively moderate at around 650€/US$ so it is a pretty attractive package. However, it is also worth to note that its little sister lens, the EF 135mm f/2 USM L, is kicking the limits a little further.
