Canon's EF 70-300mm USM IS lens gives you the impressive telephoto power and fast autofocus you need for taking rapid-fire shots of far-off subjects. Its versatile focal range and optical performance make it a great choice for use with your Canon digital SLR camera. But its big claim to fame is its renowned Image Stabilization (IS) technology, which lets you take sharp, in-focus photographs in all sorts of lighting conditions.

Dave: Canon's image-stabilized 70-300mm zoom lens lets you take pictures of distant subjects like wildlife and outdoor sports. 300mm really brings the action up close. Image stabilization lets you take hand-held shots of still subjects in low light.
