Features

The Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM is a successor to the popular Canon EF 300mm f/2.8 IS, and is designed in a lightweight form factor that weighs approximately 13% less than its predecessor. It offers quiet and faster operation, improved image stabilization and optimized optics. The Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM incorporates Fluorite elements for optimized image quality and reduced chromatic aberration plus a number of advanced coatings to minimize ghosting and flaring. With the newly developed Fluorine coating that keeps soiling, smears and fingerprints to a minimum, the EF 300mm f/2.8 IS II USM is supported by a third Image Stabilization mode (Mode 3) that activates IS only when the shutter button is fully pressed, and gives users the equivalent effect of a shutter speed four stops faster. This allows users to pan easily, making the lens ideal for professional action photography. The EF 300mm f/2.8 IS II USM also features a new security slot for wire-type security locks.
