Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM Telephoto Zoom Lens


An affordable, compact telephoto zoom lens with USM focussing.


Featuring a versatile telephoto range and a fast, quiet AF motor, the EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM from Canon is a 4x zoom characterized by its relatively lightweight design and compact form factor. Well-suited for a variety of subjects, including portraiture and sports, this lens spans portrait to medium telephoto fields of view and utilizes a micro USM to provide noticeably quick, near-silent, and precise autofocus performance that suits both stills and video applications. Benefitting image quality, a Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting in order to achieve high contrast and accurate colors. Additionally, it features a seven-blade diaphragm to produce smooth and pleasing bokeh.

Lightweight telephoto zoom with USM
The lightest 4x telephoto zoom lens in its class. Ideal for photographing sports, portraiture, wildlife etc. The lens' telephoto effect compresses perspective and restricts depth of field, effectively blurring backgrounds. At the 300mm focal length it is possbile to fill the frame with a postcard from a distance of 1.5 meters.

Fully Electronic Lens Mount
An integrated AF motor provides fast autofocusing performance. The lens' electromagnetic diaphragm ensures incredibly accurate control over aperture positioning.

Super Spectra coating
Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate colour balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and ghosting – a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera's sensor.

Ultrasonic focusing
A ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting.
