The EF 300mm f/4L IS USM Lens from Canon is a telephoto prime lens with two-mode optical image stabilization which compensates for camera shake up the equivalent of two shutter speed stops.

Two ultra-low dispersion (UD) glass elements reduce aberrations and?provide clear images and accurate color. The minimum focus distance for this lens is 4.9?.
The lens features a built-in lens hood and?a removable, rotatable?tripod collar for stable and secure tripod mounting, the lens is compatible with Canon 1.4x and 2.0x extenders.
