Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM Lens
Key Features
  • EF-Mount/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/4 to f/45
  • One Ultra Low Dispersion Element
  • NANO USM Autofocus System
Spanning a useful telephoto range, the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM Lens from Canon is a flexible zoom well-suited for a variety of subjects, ranging from portraiture to wildlife. Similarly versatile, the lens utilizes NANO USM technology that combines a fast, stills-optimized ring-type Ultrasonic Motor and a smooth, silent video-optimized Stepping Motor for all-around focusing performance to benefit multimedia image-makers. This dual-purpose AF motor also offers notably quicker performance throughout the zoom range for more responsive shooting from near to far. Additionally, also aiding both photo and movie recording, an Image Stabilizer system compensates for up to four stops of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting when working with slower shutter speeds.

Is this lens cam be used on sports photography
Asked by: Sanjoy
Yes, but there are some limitations. Auto focus speed and tracking auto focus will not be as responsive as similar Canon L series lenses. And in low light situations you'll need to boost your ISO setting to maintain a high enough shutter speed.

question

What are the key difference with previous Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 L IS USM lens ?
Asked by: rakesh r.
The Canon 70-300mm IS II has a new optical design, which should enhance the optical quality of the lens. It should be sharper, especially towards the more telephoto range. It also has a better IS system, which should be able to compensate for up to 4-stops. Other differences would include the LCD for lens information such as distance and focal length, and a new focus motor to allow for fast smooth AF.
