Telephoto Zoom. When used on a full-frame camera, the 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 IS II is a good choice for sports and action photography. Its telephoto zoom range also makes it an option for portraiture work. On an APS-C sensor camera, you’ll have an effective focal length of 112-480mm.
Optical Image Stabilization and Focus Upgrade. The NANO USM stabilizer helps prevent camera shake up to four stops and enables shooting at lower shutter speeds, while the Ultrasonic Motor provides smooth, quiet autofocus that is optimized for video.
Solid Optics and Construction. The 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 IS II uses an Ultra Low Dispersion element to help minimize aberrations and distortions, providing high-resolution images with good contrast. The rounded nine-blade aperture diaphragm produces smooth out-of-focus highlights. The Lens Information Display shows focusing distance, focal length, and shake amount.
