Get closer to the action with the outstanding Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM super-telephoto lens. Part of Canon’s acclaimed L-Series of professional lens designs, the Canon 300mm f/2.8 is the perfect lens choice for Canon photographers who regularly image close-up action from distance. A wide f/2.8 aperture ensures outstanding low light performance, while inbuilt four-stop image stabilisation technology gives you the confidence to shoot blur-free handheld images at slower shutter speeds. 

Professional L-Series Optics

Boasting 16 lens elements in 12 groups, the Canon EF 300mm f/2.8 telephoto lens is a precision imaging system built to capture sharp, high-contrast photos with speed and accuracy. The optics feature Canon’s patented SWC lens coatings to reduce glare and ghosting and to eliminate internal reflections. Images are clear and true-to-life as a result, with no frame-edge distortion and no false colours.

Rugged and Durable Construction

This Canon 300mm lens’ construction is rugged and durable. It’ll take bumps, knocks and drops without issue and it’s dust and moisture resistant too, enabling you to shoot in the most diverse range of environments that Australia has to offer. As such, this is an excellent Canon telephoto lens for travelling photojournalists, event photographers, and adventure and wildlife photographers.

Four-Stop Image Stabilisation

Enhancing image capture performance on the Canon EF 300mm f/2.8 telephoto lens is four-stop image stabilisation (IS) technology. This enables photographers to shoot blur-free handheld telephoto images in poor light, and at slow shutter speeds. Being lens-based, the Canon 300mm f/2.8 lens’ image stabilisation is visible in the viewfinder when composing shots. It is also an intelligent system, offering automatic panning detection to ensure a consistent and ultra-steady image when tracking subjects.

Near-Silent Ultrasonic Focusing

In AF mode the Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L super telephoto lens delivers exceptionally quick and sharp subject focus. Ultrasonic motors acquire focus in near silence and stop dead at the focus point without overshoot. A full-time manual focus override is also available, enabling intuitive fine-tuning of focus with your fingers without exiting AF mode.
