This 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, still-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.
Inside, the EF 70–300mm f/4–5.6 IS II USM has an optimally-placed UD lens element that helps produce high-contrast and high-detail images while reducing chromatic aberrations. Combining a wide zoom range with fast autofocus and high-quality optics, the EF 70–300mm f/4–5.6 IS II USM is perfect for APS-C camera and full-frame camera photographers, or anyone looking to expand their lens options with a fast and powerful telephoto zoom lens.
High-speed autofocus for shooting stills and smooth, near-silent autofocus when shooting video is achieved by incorporating NANO USM technology.
The EF 70–300mm f/4–5.6 IS II USM’s NANO USM technology delivers quick, near-silent autofocus whether you’re capturing an athlete jumping for a ball or recording wildlife in their natural habitat. For still images, it provides high-speed autofocus to help ensure you get the shot you want. When recording videos, the near-silent operation keeps unwanted noise out of your videos. For additional artistic control, manual focus is also possible even when the lens is set for autofocus. This means that when recording a video, for example, you can slowly pull in or out of focus for a dramatic effect.
New Lens Information Display shows focusing distance, focal length, and shake amount.
The EF 70–300mm f/4–5.6 IS II USM features a new integral Lens Information Display for fast access to a wide variety of lens information. This lets you see the information you need at a glance and then get right back to taking photos. The focusing distance display mode provides the distance the lens is focusing and an estimate of the depth of field, while the focal length display mode shows the 35mm equivalent focal length. In shake amount display mode, the Lens Information Display gives an estimate of how much the lens and the camera are moving. To aid viewing in different lighting conditions, both black text on a light background and light text on a black background are selectable.
One UD Lens helps reduce chromatic aberration and delivers outstanding high-resolution and high-contrast results.
With an all-new design, the EF 70–300mm f/4–5.6 IS II USM features 12 groups with 17 total elements, including an optimally positioned UD lens. UD, or Ultra Low Dispersion, helps correct chromatic aberrations (colored halos around objects) while reducing color blurring and keeping overall detail high. This helps the EF 70–300mm f/4–5.6 IS II USM produce sharp, high-contrast, richly colorful images throughout its zoom range.
For consistently sharp results, the EF 70–300mm f/4–5.6 IS II USM features an improved Image Stabilizer system that provides significantly enhanced shake reduction for up to 4 stops of shutter speeds. This means more reliable handheld performance and clearer detail in low-light situations or at lower ISOs. Because of its enhanced stabilization, the EF 70–300mm f/4–5.6 IS II USM can also help minimize the need for a tripod.
