The EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM is a standard telephoto zoom designed for Canon's full-frame and APS-C DSLRs. It features Canon's Image Stabilizer technology for up to three stops of correction, and offers a 112-480mm equivalent zoom range on APS-C. The zoom ring can be locked at the 70mm position, making this powerful lens easy to transport, too.
