The Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM offers you a relatively long focal length, but in a body size that is surprisingly small and compact. This is because the EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM uses a Diffractive Optical element.
The handy size does add to the price tag. In fact Canon's recommended retail price is higher than a lens in its Luxury professional range with otherwise similar specifications.
As well as the compact size the EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM offers both image stabilisation for minimising unwanted blur and a ultrasonic motor (USM) to reduce focusing times.
