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′).

As one of two lenses fitted with diffractive optics, the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM has a smaller barrel than the other 70-300mm lenses from Canon. Recognised by the green ring where an L lens would be red and a USM lens would be gold, the...
Bottom line Until the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 L IS USM was released recently, if you wanted a 70-300mm lens with awesome optics, you had to go for the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM. It offers excellent element quality, great build, and fast focusing usi...

Bottom line The Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM is a very compact telezoom for full-frame Canon SLRs, but its image quality is lacking...
Why I wanted one. As a long-term user of a Canon 75-300 IS USM lens I hoped that Canon would bring out an L-series version of this lens with better optical quality, especially at the 300mm end. When Canon introduced the 100-400 IS lens I bought one to...
