1.Includes lens hood
Canon EF 300mm F2.8L IS II USM
Sigma APO 50-150mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM

It comes with a lens hood so that you don’t have to buy it separately. These are used to block strong light sources, such as the sun, from the lens to prevent glare and lens flare.

2.widest aperture

f/2.8

f/2.8

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
