The Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens accepts rear rather than front filters, so it’s not possible to mount a protective filter in front of the lens surface. The best way to protect this lens is with the included lens hood, which will also help to minimise lens flare.
The Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens comes with a 52mm Drop-in Gelatin Filter Holder (52WII), which can hold up to three gelatin filters such as the PL-C52 (WII) polarising filter (sold separately). The 52WII filter holder is compatible with a variety of different Canon telephoto lenses that accept rear filters.
Yes, the Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens is compatible with Canon Extender EF1.4x III and Extender EF2x III.
