Bring distant subjects closer
A maximum 300mm telephoto focal length helps you to get close to your subject and fill your frame. This makes the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM Lens a great addition to your standard kit lens to help expand your photography.
High performance focusing
Nano USM allows you to focus on your subject quickly, smoothly and quietly. This makes this lens ideal for capturing still shots of fast moving subjects, as well as uninterrupted soundtracks and natural looking pull-focus transitions while moviemaking.
Superb image quality
A 9-bladed circular aperture helps to separate your subject from its surroundings and create beautiful background blur. Integrated, specialised UD lens elements, also help to reduce chromatic aberration, and retain high resolution, high quality images throughout the zoom range.
Stay informed, with a built in lens display
An innovative Lens Information Display has been positioned at the top of the lens to show key information at a glance, even in poor lighting conditions. This is incredibly useful if you’re shooting a movie using live view to ensure your shot is steady, and also allows you to check the focus distance and depth of field at the various apertures.
