Canon EF 75-300mm f/4~5.6 III / Canon EF 75-300mm f/ 4.0~5.6 III USM Telephoto Zoom Lens Marketed: 1999, Discontinued: I think it is not exaggerating to quote the Canon telephoto zoom lens version of 75-300mm is one of the most evolved among all the EF zoom lenses. In April, 1999 Canon unveiled its third upgrade to the standard versions of both the hot selling 75-300mm as MK III. Similarly, depends on individual spending budget, both MM and USM versions were offered for consumers to choose from (however, the basic non-USM version are not being marketed within Japan. So I would assume the alternative version was mainly treated as a tool to create new Canon users as a form of package to standard zoom wide-to-tele zoom usually bundles with an entry level Canon EOS camera. However, as the main stream has picking up pace in digital imaging, due to emergence of more affordable D-SLRs, the second phase of digital SLR are usually came with other choices in a customary smaller CCD matching configuration which has resulted in a series of EF-S lenses being introduced specifically for entry to midrange D-SLRs; thus, lenses introduced was still based on current pool or new comers of film-based SLR users. Ironically, during the end of the century, popularity of digital imaging is not as wide spread as in today and the strong demand for a companion telephoto zoom was still exist. The Canon EF 75-300mm f/4~5.6 was developed to succeed the EF75-300mm f/4-5.6 II and this this compact, lightweight high- magnification telephoto zoom lens also, as indicated covers medium telephoto 75 mm to super telephoto 300mm. To differentiate the MK III from previous versions, together with the alternate EF75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM, both have a bright metal ring lined around at the front of the zoom ring to give it an upscale image. This version uses a DC motor as AF drive actuator. The optical system and controls are the same as those of the EF75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM. Further, due to awareness on environmental issue, the lens actually uses lead-free glass lens elements.

One of the change in this upgrade is, Canon uses a lightweight glass for the first element group, where usually is the heavisest lens group in its 9 group structure, the change has greatly reduces operational load during an autofocus operation. When combining the adoption of this method with the micro USM, AF has been improved
