Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM

Features

 

Description

The EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM telephoto zoom lens has been developed to meet the high-performance standards that today's photographers demand. Improved Image Stabilizer Technology provides up to three stops of "shake" correction, and the "Mode 2" option stabilizes images while panning with a moving subject. Compared to the original Canon EF 75-300mm IS zoom lens, this telephoto lens has faster autofocus, and overall the lens is lighter and has a smaller diameter than the original. The zoom ring can be locked at the 70mm position, making this powerful lens easy to transport, too. Specifications

Comments

This is a "consumer grade lens", it is not a patch on my Canon 70-200 f2.8 L, but then it was a fraction of the price. It is a good quality telephoto though and gives good quality images for a reasonable cost.
