THIS mid-range tele­photo zoom in­cor­po­rates four-stop im­age sta­bil­i­sa­tion and a new, Nano USM mo­tor for fast and silent aut­o­fo­cus. It weighs 720g, has a nine-bladed di­aphragm and is equiv­a­lent to 112- 480mm on an APS- C DSLR. An in­ter­est­ing idea is the lens’s LCD panel, which can be used to cy­cle through three modes: fo­cal length, a cam­era shake meter, and the cur­rent fo­cus dis­tance com­plete with depth- of-field scale. It’s a great match to mid-range DSLRs, of­fer­ing a great bal­ance be­tween porta­bil­ity and im­age qual­ity.

A great choice for wildlife pho­tog­ra­phy on lo­ca­tion where size can be crit­i­cal
