This is a zoom lens with a high zoom ratio of 6x ranging from standard 50mm to 300mm telephoto.

The use of Canon’s original 4-group zoom optical system and UD glass lens element featuring low dispersion and low index of refraction offers correction of aberrations and excellent definition in all ranges despite being a high magnification zoom lens with a focal length of 300mm.

It also features excellent operability such a compact design reducing the overall length while adopting a 2-focusing ring system allowing focusing and zooming to be performed using separate rings.
