Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM

From the manufacturer

Incorporating Canon’s second generation Image Stabilization technology, this telephoto zoom responds in as little as 0.5 seconds, while providing up to three stops of correction for camera shake. Its AF system has been refined for better response time and tracking speed. And even the new 8-blade circular aperture offers a more pleasing out-of-focus image. Constructed to pro standards, this fast zoom is also highly resistant to dust and moisture, too.

From Wikipedia

The f/4 non-IS version, the least expensive L-series lens Canon makes, is popular among weight-sensitive landscape photographers and hobbyists who want L lens quality without spending thousands of dollars. The f/2.8 versions are popular among event photographers and photojournalists where the lower light capabilities are required; some portrait photographers also prefer this lens for the improved background blur produced by the f2.8 aperture. The non-IS f/2.8 version was released in 1995 and replaced the EF 80–200mm f/2.8L lens. The IS version lenses use circular eight-bladed diaphragms which maintain a nearly circular aperture when stopped down by up to two stops. The f/2.8 and f/4.0 image-stabilized versions also feature weather sealing (resistance to dust and water) when mated to a weather-sealed camera to such as the Canon EOS 1D-series bodies.[1][2] Weather sealed Canon products are not completely sealed from the environment, they are merely more resistant than non-sealed versions. These lenses are compatible with the Canon Extender EF teleconverters. Due to its internal zooming mechanism, there is never any "lens creep" when pointing this lens at the ground.
