Full frame lens

The EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II Nano USM is a full-frame lens and will mount on all Canon full frame DSLR, cropped sensor DSLR, and Cine cameras.

Spectacular optical quality

The Canon EF 70–300mm f/4–5.6 IS II USM features an all-new optical construction of 12 groups with 17 lens elements, including an Ultra Low Dispersion (UD) lens. The UD lens reduces the occurrence of chromatic aberrations and fringing to keep you images looking sharp and artifact free.

On-lens LCD display

The Canon EF 70–300mm f/4–5.6 IS II Nano USM features a nifty on-lens LCD that displays the current focal length, distance scale, depth-of-field marks, and a current lens shake/movement. Lens information modes can be switched with a single button, and 2 different LCD light modes aids shooting in different light. All of this lets you quickly see all the information you need, so you can get straight back to taking photos.
The focusing distance mode displays the current focus distance, as well as estimate of the depth of field.
The focal length display mode shows the 35mm-equivalent focal length, even on cropped sensor cameras.
The shake display mode gives an estimate of how much the lens is currently moving in both vertical and horizontal axis.
To aid viewing in different lighting conditions, both black text on a light background or light text on a black background are selectable.

Nano USM: Silent, fast, and smooth subject tracking with full time manual focus override

The Nano USM technology in the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM allows you to focus on your subject with exceptional speed and smooth tracking. Full time manual focus override enables you to manually fine-tune focus at any time. The Nano USM motor features near-silent motion to ensure that your sound is uninterrupted by any focusing noise.

4-stop Optical Image Stabilisation

Shooting pin-sharp photographs is made easy with the 4-stop Optical Image Stabilizer. It counteracts camera shake for high quality results in low light or when shooting at the higher focal lengths.

9-blade circular aperture for pleasant backgrounds

The Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM lens features a 9-blade circular aperture to deliver soft and pleasant looking background and bokeh.
