Offering a wide zoom range from 70 mm to 300 mm, the EF70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM telephoto zoom lens makes possible high-resolution, high-contrast photography by incorporating two UD lenses that reduce the occurrence of chromatic aberrations throughout the entire zoom range.
In addition, the EF70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM’s high-performance Image Stabilizer, combined with an optimized control algorithm, achieves image stabilization equivalent to approximately four shutter-speed stops.*

* Based on a shutter speed of “1/focal length” seconds, considered the limit to prevent hand shake during hand-held photography
