Enhanced Optics for Sharp, Vibrant Images
The Canon 70-300mm f4-5.6 IS II USM lens is made to capture key moments at their best. Its enhanced optical design features an ultra-low dispersion (UD) lens element that reduces colour fringing to deliver sharp definition and rich contrast and colour. The lens also features advanced Subwavelength Structure and Air Sphere coatings to deflect ghosting and flare, ensuring your shots look vibrant and clear even in strong lighting, like bright afternoon sun.
Powerful 4-stop Image Stabilisation
Shoot handheld or in dim lighting blur-free thanks to the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM lens’ powerful image stabiliser. This system offsets the effects of hand shake by a remarkable 4 stops, letting you shoot without a tripod if you wish and/or slow your shutter speed to capture more light indoors or in low-lit environments.
Super Fast, Smooth and Quiet Autofocus
Freeze action as it happens. Featuring a Nano USM (ultrasonic motor) that affords fast, smooth, super-quiet autofocus (AF), the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 lens lets you lock focus almost instantly and track moving subjects brilliantly. The Nano USM also benefits video recording, providing smooth focus transitions and near-silent operation that won’t affect your audio.
Lens Info Display to Keep You Informed
See all your need-to-know info at a glance with the Canon 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM lens’ LCD lens information display.
