Thank you for purchasing a Canon product.
The Canon EF70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM
is a high-performance, compact telephoto
zoom lens for Canon EOS cameras, equipped
with DO (diffractive optics) lens elements and
an Image Stabilizer.
Innovative DO optical elements combine the
benefits of fluoride elements and aspheric
elements, and contribute to achieving high
quality and compactness.
• "DO" stands for Diffractive Optics.
• "IS" stands for Image Stabilizer.
• "USM" stands for Ultrasonic Motor.

Warning to prevent lens or camera malfunction
or damage.
Features
1. DO elements adjust for chromatic aberrations
that tend to occur with telephoto zoom lenses,
and contribute to achieving an innovative
compactness with outstanding image quality.
2. The Image Stabilizer gives the equivalent
effect of a shutter speed three stops faster*.
3. The zoom ring can be fixed to keep the lens at
the shortest point.
4. Ultrasonic motor (USM) for quick and quiet
autofocusing.
5. Manual focusing is available after the subject
comes into focus in autofocus mode (ONE
SHOT AF).
6. A truly round aperture hole results in a nicer
background blur.

* Based on [1/focal length] second. Generally, it requires
a shutter speed [1/focal length] second or faster to
prevent camera shake.

a Safety Precautions
a Safety Precautions
• Do not look at the sun or a bright light source
through the lens or camera. Doing so could result
in loss of vision. Looking at the sun directly through
the lens is especially hazardous.
• Whether it is attached to the camera or not, do
not leave the lens under the sun without the
lens cap attached. This is to prevent the lens from
concentrating the sun’s rays, which could cause a
fire.

• If the lens is taken from a cold environment into
a warm one, condensation may develop on the
lens surface and internal parts. To prevent
condensation in this case, first put the lens into an
airtight plastic bag before taking it from a cold to
warm environment. Then take out the lens after it
has warmed gradually. Do the same when taking
the lens from a warm environment into a cold one.
• Do not leave the lens in excessive heat such as in

• After detaching the lens, place the lens with the
rear end up to prevent the lens surface and
electrical contacts from getting scratched.
• If the contacts get soiled, scratched, or have
fingerprints on them, corrosion or faulty
connections can result. The camera and lens
may not operate properly.
• If the contacts get soiled or have fingerprints on
them, clean them with a soft cloth.
• If you remove the lens, cover it with the dust
cap. To attach it properly, align the lens mount
index and the K index of the dust cap as shown
in the diagram, and turn clockwise. To remove it,
reverse the order.
C
To shoot in autofocus (AF) mode, set the focus
mode switch to AF.
To use only manual focusing (MF), set the focus
mode switch to MF, and focus by turning the
focusing ring. The focusing ring always works,
regardless of the focus mode.
After autofocusing in ONE SHOT AF mode, focus
manually by pressing the shutter button halfway
and turning the focusing ring. (Full-time manual
focus)

● MODE 2
C
Y
P
O
• In semi-darkened areas such as indoors or
outdoors at night.
• In locations where flash photography is
prohibited, such as art museums and theater
stages.
• In situations where your footing is uncertain.
• In situations where fast shutter settings cannot
be used.
• When panning subjects in motion.
ENG-8
Tips on Using the Image Stabilizer
• The Image Stabilizer cannot compensate for a
blurred shot caused by a subject that moved.
• Set the STABILIZER switch to
when you are
taking pictures using the Bulb setting (long
exposures). If the STABILIZER switch is set to
,
the image stabilizer function may introduce errors.
• The Image Stabilizer might not be fully effective
in the following cases:
• You shoot while riding on a bumpy road.
• You move the camera dramatically for a
panning shot in Mode 1.
• You shoot using techniques other than
following shots in Mode 2.
• The Image Stabilizer consumes more power
than normal shooting, so fewer shots can be
taken if you use the function.
• The image stabilizer operates for about two
seconds even when your finger is off the shutter
button. Do not remove the lens while the stabilizer
is in operation. This will cause a malfunction.
• With the EOS-1V/HS, 3, ELAN 7E/ELAN
7/30/33, ELAN 7NE/ELAN 7N/30V/33V, ELAN
II/ELAN IIE/50/50E, REBEL 2000/300, IX, and
D30, the Image Stabilizer will not work during
self-timer operation.
C
• When you use a tripod, the Image Stabilizer
should be turned off to save battery power.
• The stabilizer is equally effective for hand-held
photography and photography with a monopod.
• The image stabilizer function also operates
when the lens is used with an Extension Tube
EF12 ll or EF25 ll.
• Pictures may look distorted after being taken
depending on the camera, but this doesn't affect
shooting.
• If you set the camera’s Custom Function to
change the assigned button to operate the AF,
the Image Stabilizer will operate when you press
the newly assigned AF button.

To compensate for shifting of the infinity focus
point that results from changes in temperature.
The infinity position at normal temperature is the
point at which the vertical line of the L mark is
aligned with the distance indicator on the
distance scale.
C
For accurate manual focusing on subjects at
infinity distance, look through the viewfinder while
rotating the focusing ring.
The infrared index corrects the focus setting
when using monochrome infrared film. Focus on
the subject manually, then adjust the distance
setting by moving the focusing ring to the
corresponding infrared index mark.
Some EOS cameras cannot use infrared film. See
the instructions for your EOS camera.
• The infrared index position is based on a
wavelength of 800 nm.
• The compensation amount differs depending on
the focal length. Use the indicated focal length as
a guide when setting the compensation amount.
• Be sure to observe the manufacturer’s
instructions when using infrared film.
• Use a red filter when you take the picture.
