EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM
This lens sits at the top of Canon's "mid-range" long tele zoom series, offering better optics and up to three stops of Image Stabilization correction for camera movement. The 70–300mm f/4–5.6 IS remains relatively light, and easy to hand-hold and carry. It's become a low-cost, long-lens alternative for critical amateurs and pros needing telephoto power and "reach", but without flattening their budgets or breaking their backs. For business users and enthusiasts alike, this could be the answer for practical long-range shooting at an affordable price point.
- Excellent sharpness and contrast makes it a good choice for outdoor work when telephoto power is needed… a great travel lens, and useful for outdoor event coverage, candid shooting, or even surveillance work
- Image Stabilization makes it practical even at reduced light levels (overcast, dawn, dusk, etc.), permitting sharper hand-held images at reduced shutter speeds
- Nearly the power of a 500mm lens (480mm equivalent) when it’s mounted on any of the APS-C sensor size cameras, from digital Rebel models to the EOS 7D
- Brisk and quiet AF, with micro USM (unlike 70–300mm DO IS lens, this lens does not offer full-time manual focusing)
