        Cover a huge focal range with outstanding optical performance when you use the Canon EF 70-300 mm f/4-5.6L USM IS Telephoto Zoom Lens.

        High performance optics

        Compatible with your Canon EF mount DSLRs, compact and versatile Telephoto zoom lens is the perfect addition to your kit bag.

        With a full range of applications open to you thanks to its 70 - 300 mm range, this powerful lens is a terrific all round shooter.

        Delivering excellent image quality, the EF 70 - 300 mm Telephoto Zoom will let you shoot confidently and capture every detail whether you're shooting wildlife, sports or using it for everyday reportage and portraiture.

        Stable shooting

        A four stop image stabilisation mechanism, which has been specifically designed to work with this focal length, reduces image blur at slower shutter speeds making the 70-300 mm a highly usable all round lens.

        Automatic panning detection makes it even easier to track fast moving subjects with quick auto-focussing working to get you the shots you want in a split second.

        Powered by a ring-type ultrasonic motor, you can be sure that your shots will be perfectly focussed with incredible accuracy without overshooting thanks to the excellent holding torque of the motor.

        This impressive lens also features an optional manual override to shoot with manual focus settings for complete control in the field to let put your own artistic stamp on the photos you take.

        L-Series lens

        Heading Canon's flagship professional lens range, this L-Series lens represents the pinnacle of Canon's stable of optics with superior construction and handling.

        Boasting Ultra Low Dispersion elements to eliminate chromatic aberration in your shots, this high performance telephoto zoom lens gives you versatility and amazing image sharpness in one.

        Shoot creatively with the 70 - 300 mm and get closer to your subjects to capture detail like never before. An effective aperture range of f/4 - 45 and a circular 8 blade diaphragm let you express yourself creatively with depth of field and dramatic background blurring to boost your photographic arsenal.

        Highly resistant to dust and moisture, the Canon EF 70-300 mm f/4-5.6L USM IS Telephoto Zoom Lens gives you supreme photographic versatility in a convenient, high-quality package.
