Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM Lens
This lens's unique Diffractive Optical elements reduces the physical size of the lens to preserve image quality. The Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM Lens is a ultra-compact telephoto zoom lens. The DO relates to its reduced size which makes it perfect for travelling.
The EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM incorporates a Diffractive Optical (DO) element, which reduces the physical size of the lens while preserving image quality. The DO element combines the characteristics of fluorite and UD elements into one piece of glass. The result is high contrast and sharpness as well as tight control over chromatic aberration.
The EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM features a three stop Image Stabilizer (IS), making this an ideal lens for handheld work. Shutter speeds up to three stops slower than normal can be used with no perceptible increase in image blur. Major movement in a particular direction is automatically interpreted as panning and IS is turned off in this plane.
The lens's virtually circular aperture diaphragm is controlled electromagnetically to create soft and even out-of-focus regions.
A ring-type ultrasonic motor drives autofocus extremely quickly, and in near silence. Excellent holding torque ensures the point of focus is reached accurately, without overshooting.
The AF drive pattern of the lens is tailored to specifically match that of the latest EOS range, extracting maximum benefit from the lens’ speed advantage. The lens ensures optimal flash metering by passing distance information back to a compatible EOS camera's E-TTL II flash system.
