Canon EF 70-300mm F4-5.6 IS II USM

A high quality zoom with innovative lens display and Nano USM, great for wildlife and sports photography

Superb performance when shooting from a distance

Ideal for outdoor sports and wildlife photography. EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM is compatible with both full-frame and APS-C sensor EOS DSLR cameras.

Outdoor Sports

Create the illusion of being right amongst the action. Capture shots of the perfect serve, goals and on-pitch celebrations.


Get closer to nature than you ever dared or imagined and take exceptional shots of birds in flight, animals on safari or quietly at rest in a wildlife park.


Travel photography isn't just for globetrotters - sightseeing, lazy days and spur of the moment mini-breaks are all memories to treasure.

Bring distant subjects closer

A maximum 300mm telephoto focal length helps you to get close to your subject and fill your frame. Making it a great addition to your standard kit lens to help expand your photography.

High performance focusing

Nano USM allows you to focus on your subject quickly, smoothly and quietly. This makes this lens ideal for capturing still shots of fast moving subjects, as well as uninterrupted soundtracks and natural looking pull-focus transitions while moviemaking.

Superb image quality

A 9-bladed circular aperture helps to separate your subject from its surroundings and create beautiful background blur. Integrated, specialised UD lens elements, also help to reduce chromatic aberration, and retain high resolution, high quality images throughout the zoom range.

Stay informed, with a built in lens display

An innovative Lens Information Display has been positioned at the top of the lens to show key information at a glance, even in poor lighting conditions. This is incredibly useful if you're shooting a movie using live view to ensure your shot is steady, and also allows you to check the focus distance and depth of field at the various apertures.

Lightweight, compact design

Weighing 710g and measuring 14.55cm when retracted, EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM is an ideal lens for shooting on locations and when travelling

Developed optical design

Sophisticated optics, including an ultra-low dispersion (UD) lens element, ensure great image quality with high contrast and resolution throughout the zoom range, even in tough shooting conditions.

Improved Image Stabiliser

The Image Stabiliser in EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM reduces camera shake by up to 4-stops, allowing you to use a shutter speed 4 stops slower than you would otherwise have to use in order to achieve a sharp shot.

"A nice big zoom lens with good image stabilisation, sharp even wide open and fun. You could save up for an L lens but this is cheaper and less white. I wanted a 200mm L 2.8 but I am glad I bought this instead, it has lots of focal lengths in one barrel although the lens is big but it's quality makes it worth it. Castle Cameras did a great job supplying this bewilderingly fast; I got it the next day. I imagine if I ummed and arred about it and phoned them they would have patiently gone through the benefits of this great lens. The price was excellent, get 'em while they're hot. "
