    Versatile lens

    With its refined 15-element optical design, this great telephoto lens gives you excellent long-range image quality. Powerful yet affordable, the Canon EF 70-300 mm f/4-5.6 USM IS is ideal for nature and sports photographers who desires sharper images when shooting handheld.

    When attached to a Canon EOS camera fitted with an APS-C sized sensor, it provides an angle of view approximately equivalent to a 112-480mm lens on a full-frame DSLR.

    Sturdy control

    The three-stop image stabiliser (IS) add to the lens' handheld appeal, permitting shutter speeds up to three stops slower than otherwise possible – without a noticeable increase in image blur. This provides additional flexibility when shooting in low light levels.

    You can set the IS system to only correct for unwanted vertical shake when panning horizontally, and the system can also be left on as a safety net during intense sessions. When you mount the camera on a tripod, the system is turned off, keeping you in full control.

    Its virtually circular aperture diaphragm is electromagnetically controlled, providing softer, more even out-of-focus areas and giving in-focus subjects greater clarity against blurred or busy backgrounds.

    Ultra-Sonic Motor

    Featuring Canon's Micro USM (ultra-sonic motor), the EF 70-300 mm f/4-5.6 USM IS is capable of extremely fast and silent autofocus. Excellent holding torque ensures that you accurately achieve the point of focus without overshooting.

    The lens is also great for travel, weighing just 630g, and it's a superb all-rounder for situations where you may not want to constantly change lenses.

    High-quality lens materials

    The EF 70-300 mm f/4-5.6 USM IS features a UD (ultra-low dispersion) glass lens element that corrects for chromatic aberrations and gives you high resolution and contrast right across the zoom range.

    As well as being built from environmentally-friendly lead-free glass, the lens also benefits from a Super Spectra coating, which ensures accurate colour reproduction and enhanced contrast. It also works to cut out the common problems of flare and ghosting – easily caused by light bouncing off the camera's sensor.
