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

If you are looking for a lens for nature, wildlife and or sports photography lens, the Canon EF 300mm f/2.8 L IS Mk II USM Lens is perfect. It boasts fast shutter speeds and excels in low-light conditions. 

The wide aperture enables a shallow depth of field keeping the focus on your subject crisp and clear allowing for a beautiful bokeh effect. Panning fast-moving subjects is made possible with Optical Image Stabilization, meaning that you can photograph 4 shutter stops slower than needed. Fluorite Optics that are built into the lens allows for sharper images and reduces chromatic aberration from forming. The lens is lighter in weight due to magnesium and titanium construction elements. 

  • EF Mount L-Series Lens
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8-32
  • Three Mode Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) 
  • Ultrasonic Autofocus Motor
  • Manual Focus Override
  • Power Focus Mode and Focus Preset

The front and the rear of the lens are coated in a Fluorine coating making it easy and convenient for removing dust and dirt without a struggle.

The EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens from Canon is the perfect choice for nature, wildlife and sports photographers.

You might wonder why? Well, the smooth and fast focussing makes it amazing for shooting fast moving subjects. The large aperture allows for faster shutter speeds, especially in low-light conditions. And the large aperture creates beautiful bokeh. (Who doesn't like that?)

Using the three mode Optical Image Stabilization allows you to shoot at shutter speeds 4 stops slower, and the advanced third IS mode activates only when the shutter button is fully pressed, so you can pan with fast-moving subjects without the IS function interfering with composition and framing. An ultrasonic autofocus motor (USM) enables smooth, fast and quiet autofocus and a Power Focus mode allows smooth focus change which is especially important while shooting video. A focus preset function allows you to store focusing positions and return to them in an instant when needed. An AF stop button will pause autofocus with just a touch and manual focus override allows precise manual focus even in AF mode.

Image sharpness is enhanced with fluorite optics that deliver reduced chromatic aberration and SWC (SubWavelength structure Coating) reduces flare and ghosting. A circular aperture design helps to produce pleasing out of focus areas.

Dust and water sealing keeps the lens functioning even in less than ideal conditions and magnesium and titanium construction elements make it lighter than its predecessor. Fluorine coating on the front and rear lens surfaces allows dirt to be removed easily and an attachment slot is provided for a wire-type security lock. The EF 300mm f/2.8L is compatible with Canon's EF1.4x III and EF2x III extenders and this lens includes a lens hood, 52mm drop-in gelatin filter holder, a detachable tripod collar and a hard travel case.
