Combining rugged durability with outstanding image quality and an incredible array of features, the EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM is a super telephoto lens that has earned its place in many a serious photographer’s kit. Featuring superior build quality, weather sealing and enhanced durability with the addition of lightweight magnesium alloy and titanium lens barrel components, this lens is up for any challenge. Image quality is equally as impressive, delivering stunning colour and contrast, and sharpness right into the full frame corners. Focusing is a breeze with Canon’s superb ring-type USM providing lightning fast, super accurate autofocus. As a sports photography lens, the EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM really excels, offering AI Servo focusing, three modes of Image Stabilisation, a Focus Preset feature and the ability to create an excellent background blur. But this lens is not just for sports photography, it also delivers spectacular results in wildlife photography, fashion and portrait photography and photojournalism.
