|The Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 L IS USM lens is the ideal telephoto zoom lens for advanced amateurs looking for that extra reach to bring a subject in tight and close. Providing the power and durability to maximize every shooting opportunity the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM lens features two UD ultra-low dispersion glass elements for enhanced sharpness L-series weather and dust sealing for shooting in harsh conditions improved mechanical design and streamlined ergonomics to help avoid inadvertent mode switch operation. The shapes of the lens elements and their coatings have been optimized to minimize ghosting and flare to produce high-contrast and high-resolution throughout the zoom range. A sophisticated floating system optical formula optimizes image quality at all distance settings and reduces minimum focusing distance by more than a foot. An updated optical image stabilization system compensates for camera shake up to an equivalent of four full shutter-speed steps a full step improvement compared to earlier EF 70-300mm lenses. A fluorine anti-smear coating is applied to the front and rear elements. Key Features: L-series – robust performance in all conditions Some say L stands for Low Dispersion - achieved by the UD lens elements found in these lenses. But the true answer is probably the one in Canons Lens Work III Book - L is for Luxury. In general Canon L series lenses focus fast. The wide maximum apertures (smallest number) and fast quiet USM motors (Ultrasonic Motors) enhance focusing speed. The image quality of the Canon L lenses is generally as good as it gets. Contrast sharpness color bokeh (background/foreground blur quality) flare CA (Chromatic Aberration) ... All are excellent. Full Frame camera body owners will especially find L series lenses to be (on average) significantly sharper toward the edges of the frame compared to lesser lenses. Canon signature image quality Thanks to two ultra-low dispersion (UD) elements and a floating lens group the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM captures stunning high-contrast high-resolution images with low levels of chromatic aberration throughout the zoom range. The lens makes use of Canons Super Spectra coatings reducing ghosting and flare to ensure the highest possible image quality and minimizing the requirement for extensive post processing. Four-Stop Optical Image Stabilizer (IS) Canons advanced optical Image Stabilizer (IS) provides photographers with a four-stop IS advantage enabling the capture of sharp images even when shooting at maximum zoom or in low light conditions by allowing the use of slower shutter speeds than would usually be possible with handheld shooting. USM Autofocus Motor Independent Lens CPU & Advanced AF Algorithms Autofocus (AF) is fast and quiet thanks to a ring-type USM AF motor combined with the independent lens CPU and advanced AF algorithms to enable accurate reliable focusing in all conditions. As with all Canon L series lenses full time manual focus override is possible allowing photographers to manually focus even when the AF motor is engaged. With a minimum focusing distance of 1.2m (3.9ft) throughout the zoom range photographers can achieve sharp results even when close to the action. Professional accessories As part of the L-series range the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM is supplied with a lens hood ET-73B and lens case LP1424 as standard. In addition an optional dedicated tripod mount C (WII) can be directly attached to the lens. This allows it to be stabilized easily and the camera switched quickly from vertical to horizontal and back without having to reposition the camera body on the tripod perfect for fast-paced action with a variety of subjects.|
