This second-generation telephoto zoom is both quicker and sharper, giving sports and wildlife photographers and filmmakers even better results. Along with improved optics and a new Nano USM autofocus system, the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM lens features a clever LCD display that shows key info when you need it.

Lightweight, High-Performance Telephoto Zoom

Capture high-impact, fast action shots a distance with the Canon 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM lens. With its extensive zoom range and fast, quiet performance, this second-generation telephoto lens is perfectly equipped for sports photography and wildlife photography. At just 710g, however, it’s remarkably compact and lightweight – perfect for travel, chasing the action and quickly adapting to changing situations.

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. Ideal for advanced shooters, this handy feature lets you quickly confirm lens settings and shooting details in real time. As well as displaying a distance scale, depth of field markers, detected lens shake or current focal length, it even converts the focal length for attached APS-C sensor cameras.

Does the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM lens have internal zoom? 

No, the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM lens doesn’t zoom internally so its barrel will extend when zooming.
