This telephoto lens combines excellent optics and superb handling in a compact package with Image Stabilization. The IS allows safe hand holding at shutter speeds up to two stops slower than otherwise possible -- making it even more useful in low-light levels. A special mode intelligently compensates just for up and down movement, providing sharp, stable images while panning. It's also less than half the weight of the 300mm f/2.8L IS, and it focuses to an incredibly close 4.9 ft, filling the frame with a subject the size of a postcard. Like all of Canon's fixed focal length L-series lenses above 135mm, it's compatible with Canon's EF 1.4x and 2x extenders.
