Product Highlights

  • High-speed autofocus for shooting stills and smooth, near-silent autofocus when shooting video are achieved by incorporating NANO USM technology

    The EF 70-300 mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM's NANO USM technology delivers quick, near-silent autofocus whether you're capturing an athlete jumping for a ball or recording wildlife in their natural habitat. For still images, it provides high-speed autofocus to help ensure you get the shot you want. When recording videos, the near-silent operation keeps unwanted noise out of your videos. For additional artistic control, manual focus is also possible even when the lens is set for autofocus. This means that when recording a video, for example, you can slowly pull in or out of focus for a dramatic effect.

  • Lens Information Display shows focusing distance, focal length and shake amount

    The EF 70-300 mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM features a integral Lens Information Display for fast access to a wide variety of lens information. This lets you see the information you need at a glance, and then get right back to taking photos. The focusing distance display mode provides the distance the lens is focusing and an estimate of the depth of field, while the focal length display mode shows the 35 mm-equivalent focal length. In shake amount display mode, the Lens Information Display gives an estimate of how much the lens and the camera are moving. To aid viewing in different lighting conditions, both black text on a light background or light text on a black background are selectable.

  • One UD lens helps reduce chromatic aberration and delivers outstanding high-resolution and high-contrast results

    With a good design, the EF 70-300 mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM features 12 groups with 17 total elements, including an optimally positioned UD lens. UD, or Ultra Low Dispersion, helps correct chromatic aberrations (colored halos around objects) while reducing color blurring and keeping overall detail high. This helps the EF 70-300 mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM produce sharp, high-contrast, richly colorful images throughout its zoom range.

  • Image Stabilizer effect at up to 4 stops of shake correction helps capture sharp images

    For consistently sharp results, the EF 70-300 mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM features an improved Image Stabilizer system that provides significantly enhanced shake reduction for up to 4 stops of shutter speeds. This means more reliable handheld performance and clearer detail in low-light situations or at lower ISOs. Because of its enhanced stabilization, the EF 70-300 mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM can also help minimize the need for a tripod.

  • Full-time manual focus allows manual focus adjustment while in AF mode

    The EF 70-300 mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM offers complete manual control, even when AF is engaged, with a simple twist of the lens's focus ring. Additionally, full-time manual focus means it's easy to achieve and maintain focus manually, which can be especially handy when shooting video or composing still images on an SLR's screen.
