Additional information:

The Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM is a professional  super magnifying zoom lens with a wide range (10-11x) of zooming. It also features a high level of dust and moisture protection. It allows photographers to reduce lens changes and the number of lenses they need to carry.

The image stabilizer is able to detect a lack of movement, so it can remain in the ON position on a tripod. The IS has two modes:

  1. standard mode, correcting motions for static scenes (horizontal and vertical stabilization)
  2. panning mode, correcting motion along the vertical axis (independent of the lens orientation).

  • 3-stop image stabilizer with two modes
  • circular aperture
