Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens Review


The Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens may reach as close to optical perfection as any Canon DSLR lens made as of review time. Combine top-of-the-line build quality, lightning-fast AF and image stabilization to this optical quality and you get one of...

Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM review


What price for perfection in a super-fast telephoto camera lens?

Spectacular optical performance ; Great build quality ; Super-fast and accurate autofocus ; Power Focus and Focus Preset modes ; Image Stabiliser lives up to 4-stop claims

A bit heavy for prolonged handheld use ; Expensive to buy

Gary Wolstenholme reviews the Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens.

Incredibly rugged magnesium and titanium build; Lightweight for a 300mm f/2.8; Very effective IS system; Very, very sharp; Low CA, distortion and falloff; Novel locking point on tripod collar

Tripod collar isn't removable

Canon EF 300 mm f/2.8 L IS II USM


I was looking to an optically and mechanically optimized lens with a large aperture and multipurpose usability. Combined with the 1.4x and 2x extenders this lens plays in his own class. Even with the 2x Extender it is razor sharp.If you want an lens...

sharp wide open - even in the corner of the frame excellent AF speed on my 5D II - fastest AF of all lenses I've ever tested gorgeous bokeh - very smooth and extremely pleasing - comparable to the 135 f/2.0 lightweight compare to all other options...

price - that's the only shortcoming I can detect. maybe the light shade could be a bit smaller for saving packing space but for that purpose I am building my own light shade

Canon EF 300MM F/2.8L IS II USM


Perfect in every way, incredible image quality, fast quiet AF and still excellent with a 2X mark3 extender ; Impossible to fault in any way, the best lens I have ever owned

Not faults, just comments to note when making your decision. It is a little heavy but half the weight of the 400mm ; Very expensive but quality costs
