Product description

Product code: 82972610

An upgrade of Canon's popular telephoto, this lens is ideal for the nature or sports photographer looking for an affordable quality zoom. The Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II lens is ready to give you professional results. It combines manageable, lightweight design with highly versatile range and improved image stabilisation for exceptional results, even at extreme zoom levels. Its maximum telephoto focal length gets you closer to your subject for full-frame, high detail compositions.

Key features:

  • The EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS II USM features improved Image Stabilisation (IS), making it ideal for handheld and telephoto work. Shoot at up to 4 stops slower shutter speed and still capture the shot with blur-free sharpness.
  • Just under 146mm long, and weighing in at 710g, this lens is right at home on assignments where travelling light but maintaining image quality is key.
  • UD (ultra-low dispersion) glass lens ensures superb visual quality with high colour and contrast throughout the entire zoom range, in all shooting conditions. Distortion is controlled, images are free of colour fringing and other unwanted effects.
  • A Nano ultrasonic motor (USM) powers rapid, smooth and quiet autofocus. Perfect for capturing fast moving objects and super-smooth focus transitions in movie footage. Full manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.
  • A 9-blade circular aperture gives out of focus regions a softer feel, making foreground objects stand out beautifully against a smoother, blurred background.
  • A Lens Information Display screen near the top of the lens makes it easy to see key information (such as focus distance and depth of field at the various apertures), even in poorer lighting.
  • Ideal for outdoor sports, wildlife and travel photography.
  • For use with EF mount Canon DSLR cameras.

Accessories Included:

  • Lens Cap E-67II
  • Rear Cap Lens Dust Cap E
  • Instruction Manual
