REVIEW: Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens Review

photodo
16 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Handling and features The new version of Canon's 300mm f/2.8L super-telephoto professional lens sports a lighter build, a three mode 4-stop image stabiliser, a ring-type ultrasonic focusing motor with full time manual override and power focus, sub-wavelength lens coatings to minimise flare and improve contrast and costs a whopping £5500 as a result. Is this update worth the high price tag? We'll investigate in this review.

Canon EF 300mm f/2.8 L IS II USM Lens

The Digital Picture
10 September 2010
  • Excerpt: The Canon EF 300mm f/2.8 L IS II USM Lens may reach as close to optical perfection as any Canon DSLR lens made as of review time. Combine top-of-the-line build quality, lightning-fast AF and image stabilization to this optical quality and you get one of the best lenses ever made. Of course, as with all Canon Super Telephoto Lenses, the price of the 300 IS II is going to represent a noticeable setback for many.

In July 1999 a new version was shown, equipped with optical image stabilization. After more than a decade of its presence on the market it was substituted by the EF 300 mm f/2.8 L IS II USM model.
  • Cons: High price

  • Excerpt: The Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM is one of the latest telephoto and super-telephoto lenses to hit the market, or perhaps we should say to clobber it, given the size and weight of the 300mm and its even bigger 400mm brother .

  • Summary: Das Canon EF 2,8/300 mm L IS II USM kostet stolze 7.000 Euro. Im Test an der Canon EOS 5D Mark III zeigt sich, ob das Objektiv den Preis wert ist.

  • Summary: Den nok mest brukte supertelen fra Canon er blitt strammet opp. Den moderne designen sammen med nye funksjoner og en kraftig forbedret bildestabilisering gjør betjeningen til en fornøyelse. Det nye IS-systemet skal gi en fordel på fire blendertrinn, noe testen vår kan bekrefte. Den gamle versjonen ga bare to blendertrinn. Under testen brukte vi overhodet ikke stativ og nøt den bevegelsesfriheten man får ved å kunne la stativet bli i bilen.
