If you’re looking for an excellent telephoto lens that you can take anywhere, the EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM could be the lens for you. Despite its compact, lightweight dimensions, this lens is robust and solidly built. It’s light enough to carry, yet solid enough to feel substantial. Its green stripe denotes DO technology – where Diffractive Optics elements were used within the lens to keep size and weight down, while providing optimal optical performance. But just because it’s small in stature does not mean it doesn’t have big things to offer! Included in its range of exceptional features is Canon’s superb ring-type USM autofocus, which is fast, accurate and exceptionally quiet. You can also enjoy the benefits of Canon’s outstanding Image Stabilisation, which allows for easy handhold ability, helping you to create beautifully clear images. As the lens is small and black, it attracts less attention. This can make it safer to use when travelling, and easier to capture candid shots of friends and family. Whether you want a travel lens, a sports photography lens, or a general purpose telephoto zoom, this handy little lens can do it all.
