The EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM telephoto zoom lens has been developed to meet the high-performance standards that todays photographers demand. Improved Image Stabilizer Technology provides up to three stops of "shake" correction, and the "Mode 2" option stabilizes images while panning with a moving subject. Compared to the original Canon EF 75-300mm IS zoom lens, this telephoto lens has faster autofocus, and overall the lens is lighter and has a smaller diameter than the original. The zoom ring can be locked at the 70mm position, making this powerful lens easy to transport, too.

5 out of 5 stars   canon 70-300 f/4-5.6 L lens. Sharp and quality build
By John and Mary (Long Island, NY) June 24, 2014
Review submitted for Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM UD Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon EOS SLR Cameras (CN70300USMISL)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: L lens quality and build Weather sealing Sharp in all focal lengths IQ is awesome Image stabilization is great, Hand held shots comes out nice.
Cons: f/4-5.6 aperture. Not great for low light a bit heavy to lug around all day. Does not come with a Tripod lens mount/collar (as I believe canon was aiming for mobility, hand holdability for this lens)
Other Comments: I got this for my wife as a gift, I've had experience with canon 6D, 60D, T2i etc.. and have really liked the L lens quality. This one did not disappoint. Except my wife says it's too heavy for her (she only started recently with DSLRs coming from a P&S). Anyway, Beach camera is awesome and customer service is Top Notch!

5 out of 5 stars   Love this Lens
By howiez (Wading River, NY) April 17, 2013
Review submitted for Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM UD Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon EOS SLR Cameras (CN70300USMISL)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Strong Construction, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Excellent Image Quality
Cons:
Other Comments: I bought this lens to replace the EF 70-300 DO that I own and I couldn't be happier. The image quality throughout the zoom range is far better than the DO, as is the IS. I use the lens primarily for wildlife photography and have been very pleased with the performance of this lens. The only downside is that the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L is bigger and heavier than the DO - a small price to pay

3 out of 5 stars   Buy but with caution.
By gritts (stillwater, mn) March 31, 2013
Review submitted for Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM UD Telephoto Zoom Lens Exclusive Pro Kit (E1CN70300USMISL)
Pros:
Cons: No collar, Accessories
Other Comments: I HAVE NOT purchased this product from this retailer/e-tailer. I wanted to warn potential customers to know you are paying for the LENS ONLY... some of the most wanted accessories in the kit are not or should not be used with a DSLR System. the bag MAY be big enough for the lens itself. and the tripod will not hold the weight of the camera with this lens. The other products hopefully you already have them

5 out of 5 stars   Better than expected!
By Some guy in NY (NY) January 24, 2013
Review submitted for Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM UD Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon EOS SLR Cameras (CN70300USMISL)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Very Sharp, Nice Bokeh
Cons:
Other Comments: I'm finding I'm mostly using my 70-200/2.8 II IS for portraits these days (where I'm often shooting at F/5.6 or F/8 to get enough DOF) or using it for the longer end where I'm often adding the 1.4X. I thought I'd give this lens a try as it seems it might cover those uses in a smaller, lighter, more convenient package. The 70-200 is a tough act to follow so I was prepared to be a bit disappointed. I have NOT been! This is a great lens...super sharp, very fast AF, great IS, nice build quality. A bit pricey for a slow, variable aperture lens but IMO it's worth it once you see the results.

5 out of 5 stars   Extremely Satisfied!
By jlarson21 (Cadillac, MI) November 06, 2011
Review submitted for Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM UD Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon EOS SLR Cameras (CN70300USMISL)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged
Cons: Poor in Low Light
Other Comments: I had a 70-200 2.8L but it was just to heavy for my 68 years hands to hold steady for those times I can't or won't use a tripod. The 70-300 provides the perfect alternative. Yes, it is slower (4-5.6) but most of my shooting is done in the daylight hours anyway so this is not a problem. The lens, while still fairly heavy, is much easier to handhold. It is tack-sharp and autofocuses instantly for me on my 7D. And the extra zoom length over the 70-200 is great! I have even read where the Kenko 1.4 teleconverter provides autofocus throught the zoom range (whereas the Canon does not) and image quality is maintained. I plan on trying this as well.

5 out of 5 stars   A great carry-around L Lens!
By Mark B (Sacramento, CA) June 27, 2011
Review submitted for Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM UD Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon EOS SLR Cameras (CN70300USMISL)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Rugged, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction, Nice Bokeh, Durable, Consistent Output
Cons:
Other Comments: This is my 2nd "L" lens for my 7D .. I was originally thinking about getting the 100-400 L lens, but after reading some of the reviews on this lens, and seeing the significant weight difference, I went with the 70-300 and couldn't be happier. It's light enough to be able to handhold for video and lots of photos without needing a tripod or monopod. The image stabilization is absolutely INCREDIBLE, which is very important for video with our DSLR's. I love this lens, I can't wait to take it to the racetrack for some great car shots.

5 out of 5 stars   Stunning and portable at the same time
By Snort (Rochester, NY) June 05, 2011
Review submitted for Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM UD Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon EOS SLR Cameras (CN70300USMISL)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Cons:
Other Comments: So worth the upgrade from the non "L" version. They aren't even close. The sharpness is incredible at full zoom (480mm equivalent on my 60D), and there's something about the color and bokeh that makes it incredible for portrait shots. I didn't expect that at all, and I own the 17-55mm EF-S as well which is no slouch either. To summarize, I get shots from this lens that leave me in awe compared to anything I've pulled off my camera before.

5 out of 5 stars   A Great Telephoto Zoom
By kjosker (Buffalo, NY) May 13, 2011
Review submitted for Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM UD Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon EOS SLR Cameras (CN70300USMISL)
Pros: Fast focusing, Sharp across the range
Cons: Weight, Conspicuous
Other Comments: Although weighty, the lens is remarkably sharp, attains focus quickly under most circumstances, and is a joy to use. I use it as one of three travel lenses, the other two are a wide angle zoom, and a fast wide prime. The 70-300 completes the kit. Its' white color makes it very conspicuous.
