    Description - Canon EF 70-300mm F4-5.6 IS USM AF Lens:
    The advanced 3-stop Image Stabilizer (IS) technology of the Canon 70-300mm F4-5.6 Lens makes EF 70-300mm F4-5.6 lens the perfect telephoto zoom when shooting in lowlight and at slow shutter speeds. The influential so far reasonably priced Canon EF 70-300mm lens will appeal to nature and sports photographers looking to achieve sharper images when shooting handheld. EF 70-300mm IS USM lens replaces the popular EF 70 300mm F4-5.6 AutoFocus lens, the world’s first interchangeable lens with Image Stabilizer (IS), the 70-300mm Lens is expected to appeal to serious amateur nature and sports photographers. Gyro sensors in Canon 70-300mm F4-5.6 Lens detect unwanted vibrations, triggering the corresponding movement of a correcting lens group perpendicular to the optical axis. The micro USM motor found in the 70-300mm F4-5.6 IS USM lens employs ultra-sonic frequency vibrations to drive auto focus with unrivalled speed and near-silent operation. Canon EF 70-300mm F4-5.6 Telephoto Zoom lens employs an electro magnetic diaphragm (EMD) with a circular aperture. This helps create an attractive, even defocused background when isolating a subject at large apertures. The Canon 70-300mm F4 5.6 Lens micro USM EF motor uses ultra-sonic frequency vibrations to drive rapid auto-focus with near-silent operation. Good holding torque ensures there is no overshoot. A high speed CPU and optimized AF algorithm contribute to AF speed literally faster than the human eye built in EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 lens. For stabilized panning, IS Mode 2 of Canon 70-300mm F4-5.6 IS USM lens only corrects for unwanted vertical shake by switching off IS in the horizontal direction. IS is ideal for low light conditions, fast paced scenes and for shooting from moving vehicles. IS switches off automatically when the camera is mounted on a tripod.

     
    Canon's Telephoto Zoom Lens EF 70-300mm f4-5.6 IS USM inherits and expands on the exceptional optical performance of its highly acclaimed successor, the EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM, which, when it was released in September 1995, had the distinction of being the world's first interchangeable lens for SLR cameras equipped with an Image Stabilizer.
     
    Canon 70-300mm f4-5.6 IS USM lens offers an extended zoom range at the wide-angle end and incorporates an Image Stabilizer that compensates for the equivalent of three shutter stops faster, increased from two in the Canon EF 75-300mm lens. The UD lens element minimizes chromatic aberration throughout the zoom range and, compared to the previous lens, achieves higher image quality with high resolution and high contrast without any color bleeding on subject outlines. In addition, Canon's Telephoto Zoom Lens EF 70-300mm f4-5.6 IS USM features a zoom ring lock mechanism, which keeps the lens at the shortest focal length to prevent it from extending and hitting obstacles when attached to the camera and carried with a shoulder strap. The advanced 3-stop Image Stabilizer (IS) technology of the 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.

    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. Focal length translates to approx. 112-480mm equivalent in 35mm film format when fitted to cameras with APS-C size sensors.
     
    Image Stabilizer:
    EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM features Canon's 3-stop Image Stabilizer (IS). Ideal for handheld photography, Canon’s Image Stabilizer allows photographers to use shutter speeds up to 3-stops slower with no perceptible increase in image blur. For stabilized panning, IS Mode 2 only corrects for unwanted vertical shake by switching off IS in the horizontal direction. IS is ideal for low light conditions, fast paced scenes and for shooting from moving vehicles. IS switches off automatically when the camera is mounted on a tripod.
     
    UD Lens Element:
    A UD (ultra-low dispersion) glass lens element corrects chromatic aberration to achieve high resolution and contrast throughout the zoom range without color fringing on subject outlines. Only lead free glass is used in the lens construction.
     
    Super Spectra Coatings:
    Optimized Super Spectra lens coatings and lens element shaping suppress flare and ghosting - more prone to occur with digital cameras due to reflection off the image sensor. Coatings also help achieve true color balance and sharp high contrast images.
     
    Pleasing Background Blur:
    A circular barrel aperture helps to create an attractive, even background blur when isolating a subject at large apertures.
     
    Fast Auto-Focus:
    The lens's micro USM motor uses ultra-sonic frequency vibrations to drive rapid auto-focus with near-silent operation. Good holding torque ensures there is no overshoot. A high speed CPU and optimized AF algorithm contribute to AF speed literally faster than the human eye.
