- Lens construction: 15 elements in 11 groups
- Diagonal angle of view: 8°15'
- Focus adjustment: Rear focusing system with USM
- Closest focusing distance: 1.5m / 4.9ft

Compact L-series telephoto lens with an Image Stabilizer which compensates for camera shake with equivalent effect of a shutter speed two stops faster. Two Image Stabilizer modes are provided: Stabilizer Mode 1 (the same mode featured on the EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM) and the new Stabilizer Mode 2 which steadies the image during horizontal or vertical panning.
The image stabilizer also functions when using the Extender EF1.4xII or Extender EF2xII to provide that elusive 600mm shooting capability.

The Canon EF 300mm f/4.0 L IS USM Lens is another excellent lens in the Canon L Series. The Canon EF 300mm f/4.0 L IS USM Lens is relatively light and very well built. The 300 f/4 IS is slightly lighter than the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM Lens...
