Canon 300mm f/2.8L IS II

Available Today

The Mk II is significantly lighter in weight, has better image stabilization (4 stops compared to 2), and is a bit sharper, particularly in the corners, than the previous version of the Canon 300mm f/2.8L IS. It also has and a faster autofocus CPU with dedicated algorithms that increase autofocusing speed and accuracy significantly. There’s also a “power focusing” mode for video that focuses smoothly to a preset recall position.

It remains quite sharp with 1.4x and even 2x teleconverters.

There’s an old saying that the early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. Canon’s second 300 f/2.8 IS lens certainly gets the cheese. It’s pricey. It’s more than most people need. But it’s probably the best telephoto lens ever made. I find it reasonably easy to hand hold for a while, at least, and with a pair of teleconverters it gives great images up to 600mm.
