EF 70-300mm F/4-5.6 IS II USM with fast, whisper quiet Nano USM

Designed for use with full-frame or APS-C cameras, the new EF 70-300mm f4-5.6 IS II USM offers cutting-edge AF and optical technology for stills and movies.

With a completely new optical design, the lens features one ultra-low dispersion (UD) lens element to reduce chromatic aberration, for sharp images with outstanding colour and contrast. When using the zoom, the new four-stop optical image stabilizer (IS) reduces the effects of camera shake, allowing you to shoot with longer shutter speeds without a tripod and still achieve sharp shots.

The built-in Nano USM – a breakthrough technology that was introduced with the EF-S 18 -135mm f3.5-5.6 IS USM – offers fast focus acquisition, exceptional tracking speed and smooth, quiet operation. Nano USM makes the lens ideal for movie-makers, giving a natural look and feel to movies – the quiet motor ensuring that soundtracks aren’t disturbed by focusing noise and providing smooth focus transitions from one subject to another.

Lens Information Display
The EF 70-300mm f4-5.6 IS II USM is the first Canon lens to feature an electronic Lens Information Display, ideal for advanced photographers requiring visible shooting information in real-time. Perfect for checking settings at a glance, the display modes include focus distance, depth-of-field scale at various apertures, camera shake and focal length. The display is useful for checking steadiness when you are shooting at low-angles, while also allowing you to work out the 35mm equivalents when using APS-C and APS-H format EOS cameras. Designed with a sleek black finish, the lens seamlessly integrates with the look and feel of Canon’s EOS bodies. The 67mm filter thread and non-rotating front element makes it practical for use with filters.

Pricing and availability
•  The EF 70-300mm F4-5.6 IS II USM will be available from November 2016 with an RRP of £499.
