Description of Canon EF75300MM / 6473A003:
The most affordable of Canon's long telephoto zooms, this lens is excellent for subjects from portraits to wildlife and nature. It shares the same 13-element optical system as the 75-300mm USM lens, but uses a DC motor for autofocus. Close-focusing down to 4.9 feet (1.5m) allows filling the frame (at 300mm) with a subject the size of a dollar bill, and it's compatible with the Canon 58mm Close-up lens 500D for even more spectacular shots of small objects.
