Recently, Gehér and Šemrl have characterized the general form of surjective isometries of the set of all projections on an infinite-dimensional separable Hilbert space using unitaries and antiunitaries. In this paper, we study the surjective L2-isometries of the projection lattice of an infinite dimensional Hilbert space and show that every such isometry can also be described by unitaries and antiunitaries.
