The Canon EF 70-300mm IS USM lens will appeal to serious amateur nature and sports photographers looking to achieve outstanding results while shooting hand-held. IS image stabilisation dramatically reduces image blur caused by camera shake, and the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM features Canon's latest 3-stop IS - a one-stop improvement over its predecessor. This technology allows shutter speeds up to three stops slower than would otherwise be possible, with no perceptible increase in image blur: Shooting a 300mm frame handheld at 1/500s can obtain the equivalent result with a shutter speed of just 1/60s, vastly extending options in low light conditions. As this lens features a Canon EF (Electro-Focus) lens mount, you can use this lens on a Canon full-frame camera (Such as the 1D X, 5D Mk III, 6D etc.) and a cropped sensor (APS-C) camera with EF-S mount (EG. 350D, 7D, 550D, 60D etc.).

Canon EF 70-300mm IS USM: Telephoto Zoom with Image Stabiliser (IS)

  • Canon Image Stabilizer effective for 3 f-stops compensation.
  • Contains an UD lens element to improve the final image quality.
  • Quiet, rapid autofocus from the Ultra-Sonic-Motor (USM).
  • Focal length equivalent to 112-480mm in 35mm film format on APS-C sensors.

Affordable high magnification
The powerful, yet reasonably priced, EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM will appeal to nature and sports photographers looking to achieve sharper images when shooting handheld. When fitted to an EOS camera containing an APS-C sized sensor, the lens gives an angle of view roughly equivalent to a 112-480mm lens on a full-frame DSLR.

Image Stabilizer
The EF 70-300mm f/5-5.6 IS USM features a three-stop Image Stabilizer (IS), making this an ideal lens for handheld work. Shutter speeds up to three stops slower than would be otherwise possible can be used with no perceptible increase in image blur. When panning horizontally, the IS system can be set to correct only for unwanted vertical shake, and the system switches off when the camera is mounted on a tripod.

UD lens element
A UD (ultra-low dispersion) glass lens element corrects for chromatic aberrations and provides high resolution and contrast throughout the zoom range. Only environmentally friendly lead-free glass is used in the lens construction.

Super Spectra coating
Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate colour balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and ghosting – a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera's sensor.

Pleasing background blur
A virtually circular aperture diaphragm, which is controlled electromagnetically, gives out-of-focus regions a softer, more even feel, and lets in-focus subjects stand out against a blurred background.

Ultrasonic focusing
A ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting.
