The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM
Article code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product code if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.

EAN/UPC code :
European Article Number (EAN) and Universal Product Code (UPC) are better known as the barcode on a product's packaging to uniquely identify a product in a shop or logistic process. One product can have multiple barcodes depending on logistic variations such as packaging or country.
Category :
The light-gathering device of a camera, typically containing a group of compound lenses. Lenses come in different lengths, with very long lens used for long-distance photography.

With an ultra-high approx. 11x zoom range covering everything from wide-angle to super-telephoto, Canon's latest professional series 'white lens' is designed for professional photographers looking to limit lens changes and overall kit weight. With Image Stabilization (IS) and high speed, silent auto focus, this superbly specified lens delivers what others can only imagine.

Image Stabilization
Canon's renowned IS technology compensates for approximately three stops with no perceptible increase in image blur. This vastly increases the range of circumstances in which hand-held photography is possible, limiting the need to carry a tripod. Major movement in a specific direction is detected as conscious panning and correction is halted in the relevant direction, thereby preventing shake-return.

Ultra Sonic Motor
The ultrasonic motor (USM) converts ultrasonic vibrational energy into rotational force to deliver high-speed, high-precision, super efficient and virtually noiseless auto focusing, with good holding torque for rapid response, accurate stopping. The lens has full-time manual override. The 0.7m minimum focusing distance throughout the entire zoom range also makes it ideal for close-up magnifications.

Perfect for digital
Lens shape and coatings have been optimised to suppress ghosting and flaring, making the lens ideal for use with digital cameras that can be susceptible to reflections off the recording sensor. When fitted to digital cameras with an APS-C size sensor such as the EOS 10D, the lens has an equivalent focal length range of 45-480mm.

Precision optics for high image quality
Beautiful contrast, low distortion and high corner-to-corner resolution is evident throughout the zoom range. An EMD (electromagnetic diaphragm) controls aperture for fast, quiet, highly precise control. A circular aperture diaphragm affords pleasing background blur, from full aperture to two stops down.

Environmental protection
The EF 28-300mm features a rugged dust-proof and drip-proof construction, designed for professionals working under a wide range of harsh conditions.

Working with EOS
The drive pattern is tailored to match the latest EOS range, extracting maximum benefit from the lens’ speed advantage. Distance information offers higher precision focus-linked E-TTL II flash photography metering.

Lens System
Component for*
What this product is used as a part of (component for).
Lens structure*
The way in which a camera lens is constructed.
Lens type*
Category of lens e.g. tele, close-up, macro.
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′).
1.1 - 11.8" (28 - 300 mm)
Lens mount interface*
A lens mount is an interface — mechanical and often also electrical — between a photographic camera body and a lens. It is confined to cameras where the body allows interchangeable lenses, most usually the rangefinder camera, single lens reflex type or any movie camera of 16 mm or higher gauge.
