Canon EF 70-300mm f4-5.6 IS II USM Lens

A high quality zoom with innovative lens display and Nano USM, great for wildlife and sports photography.

Superb performance when shooting from a distance

Ideal for outdoor sports and wildlife photography. EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM is compatible with both full-frame and APS-C sensor EOS DSLR cameras.

A great lens for;

  • Outdoor Sports

    Create the illusion of being right amongst the action. Capture shots of the perfect serve, goals and on-pitch celebrations.
  • Wildlife

    Get closer to nature than you ever dared or imagined and take exceptional shots of birds in flight, animals on safari or quietly at rest in a wildlife park.
  • Travel

    Travel photography isn’t just for globetrotters - sightseeing, lazy days and spur of the moment mini-breaks are all memories to treasure.
  • 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.
  • 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.

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.

  • Developed optical design

    Sophisticated optics, including an ultra low dispersion (UD) lens element, ensure great image quality with high contrast and resolution throughout the zoom range, even in tough shooting conditions.
  • Improved Image Stabilizer

    The Image Stabilizer in EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM reduces camera shake by up to 4-stops, allowing you to use a shutter speed 4 stops slower than you would otherwise have to use in order to achieve a sharp shot.

I guess in comparison to other similar lenses the quality is good at the price level
I think a lens hood should be included for the money. Bizarrely if it had been £10 more but included a lens hood it would have felt better

South Wales GB
Good quality lens at the price point. My quality ratings compare it to the L series lens.
AF is amazingly fast - possibly faster than my 100-400 L Mk2.
IS seems to be doing its job.
Convenient size for general photography.
Not sure about the LCD display yet...
No lens hood included and Canon are asking ridiculous money for it.

Shepperton GB
Very quick focusing and sharp, even wide open. Compares well to my Canon 100-400L in overall image quality and is easier to use due to weight.
Didn't come with a lens hood
