A worthy successor to the popular Canon EF 300mm f/2.8 IS, the all-new Canon EF 300mm f/2.8 IS II USM super telephoto lens is lightweight, weighing approximately 13% less than its predecessor, yet offers faster operation, improved image stabilization and superior optics. Incorporating Fluorite elements for improved image quality and reduced chromatic aberration plus a number of advanced coatings to minimize ghosting, flaring, and with a newly developed Fluorine coating that keeps soiling, smears and fingerprints to a minimum, the EF 300mm f/2.8 IS II USM is ready to deliver spectacular images in an instant. With a third Image Stabilization mode (Mode 3) that activates IS only when the shutter button is fully pressed, and giving the equivalent effect of a shutter speed four stops faster, the EF 300mm f/2.8 IS II USM allows for easy panning and is ideally positioned for professional action photography. The EF 300mm f/2.8 IS II USM also features a new security slot for wire-type security locks.

Cashback on selected Canon lenses, when bought with selected compatible Canon Cameras. For full list of included cameras and lenses, click here.
Lens and camera body must be purchased between 23/03/16 and 31/01/17, but they do not need to be bought together.
Only one lens claim per camera body can be made. i.e. If you buy two lenses, you may only claim for the cashback on one.
Lens Cashback cannot be combined with any other promotion. If there is a season promotion, such as Summer Cashback, you may claim either cashback value, not both. If you have already claimed cashback on the camera body, you may not claim cashbask with the Lens Cashback promotion.
Lens Cashback is not valid on standard camera kits, i.e. Canon EOS 80D & 18-135mm F/3.5-5.6 IS USM. It is valid on any Wilkinson Camera kits, such as the EOS 1D X Mark II & EF 100-400mm - if you have any doubt, please contact us before making a purchase.
