The advanced 3-stop Image Stabilizer (IS) technology of the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM lens makes it the ideal telephoto zoom when shooting in lowlight and at slow shutter speeds.
The Canon 70-300mm f4-5.6 is usm 3rd generation image stabilizer is designed to be handholdable at a shutter speed up to 3 f-stops slower than a non-stabilized lens at the same focal length. A useful zoom-lock switch is provided to prevent the lens from gravity extending. With the introduction of the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens,

Canon has replaced one of its most popular lenses and its first image stabilized lens - the Canon EF 75-300mm f/4.5-5.6 IS.
The 75-300mm IS lens was popular because of its focal length range, small size, light weight and Image Stabilization. The Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens improves this overall package.

Canon EF 70-300mm affordable high magnification
The powerful, yet reasonably priced, EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM will appeal to nature and sports photographers looking to achieve sharper images when shooting handheld. When fitted to an EOS camera containing an APS-C sized sensor, the lens gives an angle of view roughly equivalent to a 112-480mm lens on a full-frame DSLR.

EF 70 300 Image Stabilizer
The EF 70-300mm f/5-5.6 IS USM features a three-stop Image Stabilizer (IS), making this an ideal lens for handheld work. Shutter speeds up to three stops slower than would be otherwise possible can be used with no perceptible increase in image blur. When panning horizontally, the IS system can be set to correct only for unwanted vertical shake, and the system switches off when the camera is mounted on a tripod.

Canon 70 300mm UD lens element
A UD (ultra-low dispersion) glass lens element corrects for chromatic aberrations and provides high resolution and contrast throughout the zoom range. Only environmentally friendly lead-free glass is used in the lens construction.

Canon 70-300mm IS Super Spectra coating
Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate colour balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and ghosting a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera's sensor.

Pleasing background blur
A virtually circular aperture diaphragm, which is controlled electromagnetically, gives out-of-focus regions a softer, more even feel, and lets in-focus subjects stand out against a blurred background.

Ultrasonic focusing
A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting. Furthermore, full-time manual override is available, making it possible to adjust focus without leaving AF mode.
