The Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens is a sharp, fast, and relatively lightweight super telephoto. Versatile due to its mid-telephoto focal length and bright maximum aperture, this 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM is also distinguished by its high-speed performance and intuitive handling to suit its use in a wide variety of working conditions.

Fast Aperture
The Fast f/2.8 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and also affords significant control over depth of field for working with selective focus techniques. Two fluorite elements are used to greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to achieve greater clarity and color accuracy, while a rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

Image Stabilization
This 300mm f/2.8L IS ll lens is characterized by its four stop-effective Image Stabilizer system, which has three separate stabilization modes to suit various shooting applications: standard single-shot mode, a panning-optimized mode, and a mode that only activates the Image Stabilizer during the exposure. An Optical Image Stabilizer helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed stops to better enable working in low-light conditions and with slower shutter speeds.

USM Motor with Power Focus
A ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), along with optimized focusing algorithms and a high-speed CPU, is employed to deliver fast, precise and quiet autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override. Also featured is a Power Focus mode, which allows for quiet focus shifts that are suitable for filmmaking. Power Focus setting allows you to electronically and smoothly adjust your focus position to suit video recording. This setting utilizes a dedicated ring in front of the main focusing ring and allows you to use one of two different focusing speeds. Like other L-series super teles, there is Focus Preset function to quickly recall a programmed focusing position and a Focus Limiter switch that lets you constrain the focusing to different ranges for faster performance to suit different applications.

Build Quality
As a member of the esteemed L-series, this lens is resistant to dust and water for working in inclement environmental conditions. A sub wavelength coating has been applied to individual elements to suppress flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color neutrality when working in backlit conditions. A Removable rotating tripod collar is included and benefits working with the lens atop a tripod or monopod.

Movri Canada, providing the mail-delivery system, is set out to make the gear available at more affordable prices through online rentals.
