Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Lens

High-performance L-series super-telephoto lens

With a large aperture of f/2.8, the EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM is a high performance super-telephoto lens that delivers exceptional image quality in in a robust lightweight construction. . Using the three mode Optical Image Stabilization allows you to shoot at shutter speeds 4 stops slower, and the advanced third IS mode activates only when the shutter button is fully pressed, so you can pan with fast-moving subjects without the IS function interfering with composition and framing.

An ultrasonic autofocus motor (USM) enables smooth, fast and quiet autofocus and a Power Focus mode allows smooth focus change which is especially important while shooting video. A focus preset function allows you to store focusing positions and return to them in an instant when needed. An AF stop button will pause autofocus with just a touch and manual focus override allows precise manual focus even in AF mode.

High performance super-telephoto lens
With a large aperture of f/2.8, the EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM is a high performance super-telephoto lens delivering exceptional image quality in a durable and lightweight design.

L-series quality
The L-series is Canon's flagship professional lens range, representing the best in precision-designed EF optics. L-series lenses combine superior performance with superlative handling, and are highly resistant to dust and moisture.

4-stop Image Stabilizer
A 4-stop optical Image Stabilizer – specially designed for the lens’ specific focal length range – works to counteract image blur, which can occur during handheld shooting, or at slow shutter speeds. Automatic panning detection ensures effective performance when tracking moving subjects and, as the IS system is based in the lens, results are visible through the viewfinder during framing.

Enhanced image quality with SWC coating
Designed for use in digital photography, Canon’s patented Subwavelength structure coating helps minimise the ghosting and flare caused by internal reflections. By eliminating the cause, the coating reduces reflections and helps to deliver crisp, clear images.

3 IS Modes
Ideally suited for all types of action photography especially those disciplines that require the utilization of panning, the new IS mode 3 only activates the image stabilizer element during exposure.

Fast, quiet auto focus
A ring USM (Ultrasonic motor) uses ultrasonic frequency vibrations to drive extremely rapid auto focus with near-silent operation. A high-speed CPU and optimised AF algorithms contribute to fast AF performance. Full time electronic manual focus override is available without having to switch out of AF mode.

Canon European Warranty System Information

In the event that a Canon product develops a fault, our customers are covered by the Canon European Warranty System (EWS) which ensures that the fault is resolved free of charge for a limited period of time after purchase (terms and conditions apply).

Terms and Conditions
The EWS is comprised of two different service offerings and the offering that is applicable to you is determined by your location and the product you have purchased. For most Canon consumer products, a Return To Base service is offered. If a product develops a manufacturing fault during the warranty period then it must be returned to a Canon approved repair facility where it will be repaired free of charge by Canon authorised technicians. Your product will be returned to you when the repair is complete.

A: For European Warranty System (EWS) applicable countries, each product box will generally contain a EWS Warranty Card in the box.

Q: Is it necessary for me to complete and return any documentation to Canon in order to register my European Warranty System (EWS) warranty?
A: It is not necessary for you to return any documentation to Canon in order to register for the European Warranty System (EWS). If you wish to specifically request a warranty repair under the European Warranty System (EWS) then it will always be necessary for you to provide Canon with the original valid proof of purchase (including original date of purchase) for the product in question and, in some cases, a completed warranty card may also be required. Please refer to the specific country in question for specific requirements.

A: Details regarding the specific warranty offered per product will generally be contained in the product box. In general, products will be covered by a warranty that applies to their specific sales region and it will be necessary for customers to return any products to the applicable region in order to claim a warranty repair. Canon does not generally offer a global warranty unless specifically mentioned for specific products / regions.

Q: If I have bought a Canon product and I later decide to give this / sell this to someone else within the specified European Warranty System (EWS) warranty period, does this EWS warranty transfer with the product?
A: Yes, Canon products are covered by the European Warranty System (EWS) regardless of whom the actual product owner is. However the start and end date of the warranty will apply to the original purchase date and not the date of subsequent sale.

Q: If I have bought a Canon product covered under the European Warranty System (EWS) and I travel to another country that is not covered by the EWS and the product requires repair, will I be offered a warranty repair?
A: Technically, Canon warranties are only applicable within the region in which the product has been sold and for which specific warranty details were included in the box. Canon does not generally offer a global warranty unless specifically mentioned for specific products / regions. We would always advise Canon customers to contact local Canon representatives to see what assistance is possible. In some cases it may be necessary for you to pay for any applicable repairs and to then attempt to reclaim this from Canon (this only applies if the fault repaired is covered by the terms of EWS – for example customer misuse is excluded) when you return to the European Warranty System (EWS) region. To support your claim we would always advise you to retain any applicable documentation relating to charges incurred / repairs handled.
