Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM White:
The official marketing text of Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM White as supplied by the manufacturer
Canon offers a telephoto lens equipped with an Image Stabilizer enabling hand-held shooting for easier movement. The fluorite element and two UD-glass elements effectively correct the chromatic aberrations prone to occur with telephoto lenses. To reduce the overall weight and enhance portability, the lens barrel and many other exterior parts use magnesium alloy. Also, the detachable tripod collar revolves smoothly and locks securely.

Lens system
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).
