  • 1Description

Rounding out your kit, the Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM Lens with Accessories Kit from B&H bundles the all-in-one zoom lens with 77mm circular polarizer and UV filters as well as a lens cleaning kit.

  • Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM Lens

    Spanning an immensely versatile wide to telephoto range, the EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM is a Canon L-series zoom well-suited for travel use or other situations where a one-lens kit is ideal. Using aspherical elements and ultra-low dispersion glass, both chromatic and spherical aberrations are well-corrected for notable sharpness and clarity throughout the zoom range. A Super Spectra coating also helps to minimize flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy, especially when working in backlit and bright conditions.

    Beyond the optical attributes, this 28-300mm is also characterized by its advanced three stop-effective Image Stabilizer system to minimize the appearance of camera shake. Also complementing handling is a sophisticated ring-type USM, which provides quick, quiet, and accurate autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. Additionally, this lens is weather-sealed for use in trying environmental conditions and it has a removable rotating tripod collar to benefit working atop a tripod or monopod.

    All-in-one 28-300mm zoom is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 44.8-320mm equivalent focal length.
    Three ultra-low dispersion glass elements noticeably reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for high clarity and color fidelity.
    Two aspherical elements minimize spherical aberrations and distortions for improved sharpness and accurate rendering.
    Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize ghosting and flare for greater contrast and color neutrality when working in strong lighting conditions.
    An Optical Image Stabilizer helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to three shutter speed stops to better enable working in low-light conditions and with slower shutter speeds.
    A ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), along with an internal focusing system, is employed to deliver fast, precise, and quiet autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override.
    Focus Limiter switch lets you constrain the focusing to two different ranges to suit different applications: 8.2'-infinity or 2.3'-infinity.
    Rounded eight-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
    As a member of the esteemed L-series, this lens is sealed against dust and moisture for working in inclement environmental conditions.
    Removable rotating tripod collar is included and benefits working with the lens atop a tripod or monopod.

  • Luminesque 77mm Circular Polarizer and UV Slim PRO Filter Kit

    Combining two of the most useful filters available, Luminesque's 77mm Circular Polarizer and UV Slim PRO Filter Kit is well-suited to all forms of photography. Both filters are constructed from Schott optical glass and feature a 12-layer multi-coating for maintained clarity and image quality. Each filter is also set in an anodized aluminum filter ring, with the UV filter featuring a slim 3.4mm-thick profile to lessen the likelihood of vignetting with wide-angle lenses.

    The UV filter is a general use, clear filter that helps to absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight. It is also useful as a general protective filter to leave on lenses at all times in order to reduce dust and moisture from reaching the front lens element and to provide additional protection in case of accidental impacts. Its 12-layer multi-coating also helps to achieve 98.2% light transmission for faithful color reproduction and contrast.

    The circular polarizer filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. This results in a noticeable increase in the saturation of skies and foliage, as well as clearer imagery when photographing in hazy conditions. A circular polarizer differs from a linear polarizer in that it supports full use of a camera's autofocus and auto exposure functions.

    Luminesque PRO
    • Constructed from Schott optical glass for maintained image quality and clarity.
    • A 12-layer multi-coating helps to reduce surface reflections and glare for improved contrast and color neutrality.
    • Anodized aluminum filter rings feature a knurled top edge for easier installation and removal.
    UV Slim Filter
    • Absorbs UV light and reduces bluish cast of daylight for greater image clarity.
    • Clear filter provides no additional coloration or contrast, allowing you to pair this filter with others.
    • Works as general protection filter to reduce dust, moisture, and scratches from reaching the front lens element.
    • 12-layer multi-coating helps to realize a high light transmission rate of 98.2%.
    • Slim filter ring incorporates front threads and measures 3.4mm-thick to lessen the likelihood of vignetting when used on wide-angle lenses.
    Circular Polarizer Filter
    • Reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
    • Arrange and filter directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light allowing for the absorption of much of the light.
    • Lessens haze in distant landscapes and provides more saturated, vivid colors.
    • Strongest effect when used at a 90° from the sun.

  • ZEISS Lens Cleaning Kit

    This Lens Cleaning Kit from ZEISS is a complete solution for cleaning valuable optics such as camera lenses, eyeglasses, telescopes, or spotting scopes.

    Both wet and dry cleaning tools are provided. For blowing dust off an optical surface, the air blaster can be used, while the retractable lipstick-style cleaning brush can dislodge more stubborn dirt or dust particles.

    When a thorough wet cleaning is required, a 1 oz bottle of cleaning fluid or ten, individually-wrapped pre-moistened lens wipes are available. Designed for single use, these wipes come in individual, disposable packets. They can be stored in a camera bag, glove compartment, studio, or lens case for whenever they may be needed.

    The non-abrasive, 7.1 x 7.1" microfiber cloth can be used after applying fluid or one of the pre-moistened wipes in order to complete the cleaning process and ensure that no streaks or spots remain. It can also be used on its own to effectively remove smudges.

    A fabric travel case is also included to hold the contents of the entire kit.

    Canon 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 reviews

    EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM Lens is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 234.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite lens I am a photographer that travels a lot. I find this lens the very best for traveling. On my 5D Mark II I get 1:1 and on my 7D I can get range like 44-480mm. I present digital shows of my travels to many groups every year, and they always comment on the sharpness of my images. I never have to change lens which avoids dust on sensor, and I can zoom in or out at will. I have used this lens for more than 5 years, and could not be without it. 90% of my shooting is hand held and the IS is invaluable. Carrying photo gear on flights is a breeze. It weighs no more than my 100-400 IS lens that I use for wildlife.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My only lens needed After reading several lack luster reviews about this lens I still made the investment. I am not disappointed. For one price I have one lens that does it all and provides quality L lens photos. Cons: Heavy for the first two weeks Cost needs dropped by $500 A 2.8L shutter speed would be nice It is ISO hungry. The lens likes 200 ISO or better for good shutter speeds on my 5DMk1 Pros: Other men have lens envyLOL I do not change my lens in the field so I do not get dust on my senor. Sharp and detail photos. So long as you work in the lens sweet spot. (5.6F 11F) The lens is so heavy, my wife does not ask to use my camera. LOL

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile but heavy It's an extremely versatile lens which is great while traveling and doing totally different kind of shots during the same time-span. I.e. visiting a town: close ups, portraits, buildings, panoramas; outdoor sports: close-ups, groups; nature: close-up, limited macro, landscape. The IS Image stabilizer will help also in lower light conditions. The push-pool zoom is first strange to handle but you soon find out how wonderful it is when you have a 'situation'. When I travel I have this lens with an additional extreme wide (10-22mm). Be prepared to some: "whoa!" when you get the camera out of your bag. This is unfortunately at the the expense of a real heavy weight and some reduced sharpness.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Trade off for convenience I've been using this lens with my EOS 5D Mark III for a couple of months and am happy with the convenience of not having to switch lenses. At a third of the price, I would have considered it a good value for a utility lens I use whenever I feel I'm going to be in need of that kind of quick versatility. The images are consistently very soft, lacking even acceptable sharpness in most cases. It performs reasonably well, if you limit yourself to middle aperatures in the 8 to 11 range, while sticking to a focal length between 100 and 170mm. So much for the vaunted versatility. Over-priced and over-rated. The downside isn't the extra weight, it's the overall performance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this lens I am tired of carting around a lot of stuff. I have an EF 70-300 USM (which i love ). I shot photos at the Naples Swamp Buggy Races 01/2009 with this 28-300, I did not have to switch from the 70-300 to the 18-55 like before to get shots that where closer to me. I was amazed how clear my photos came out. I did not us a tripod, i was top row of bleachers, hand held, just snapping away. Zooming in and out. It took a little getting used to the slide motion, but once I got the hang of it it was cool. I did notice fully extended is not as close as the 70-300's full extension. But I am fully happy with it. I have excellent shots. Glad I made the purchase.
    Date published: 2009-02-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should have bought this lens long ago! Just returned from a trip to Canada and this is the only lens I have used pretty much all the time. For travelling, I used to carry the 24-105 which I was very happy with, but sometimes felt I missed a shot because I needed an extra reach. Not the case this time. If I wanted a wide cityscape shot or take a picture of a bird flying at a distance, the 28-300 was there to cover both situations. The problem with the 70-200 and the 100-400 is that you need to carry an extra lens and/or body to cover the wider side. The f/5.6 aperture is also not an issue if you know how to work with it but, this lens paired with a high ISO camera like a 1DX or a 5D III, this becomes a non-issue.
    Date published: 2013-09-04
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wake up Call for old pro This lens is a great tool - gives me the ability to pack a single lens for virtually any shot - as long as I'm willing to carry the weight. The most incredible ability to utilize depth of field and focal length in a digital format, bringing me back into an artistic mode rather than straight documentary, then getting artsy with the digital process. Whether getting a hawk soaring on the evening air currents, or an inaccessible pictograph on a rock 50 feet away, or an extreme closeup of a grasshopper with wildflowers in bloom slightly out-of-focus behind, I again have as much control as I want!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the better things I've done Many of my fellow enthusiasts have the 100-400mm lens. I bought this lens before I knew what most others have. And I'm glad I did! This lens works perfectly with my 30D and my 5D Mark II. Especially on the 5D Mark II. This lens give you the best of both worlds. Wide angle and telephoto! I've had this lens for almost 3 yrs now and I wouldn't do without it. I now know the sweet spot is f/7.1 for the sharpest pictures this lens will give. Otherwise you do get a little softer focus with this lens but the versatility of this lens makes my other photography friends jealous. I have a super wide angle zoom and this lens and that's it! With my 5D Mark II and it's 21.1 MP it's like almost having a macro! I can't do without it. enough said.
