I had a 28-135 with the USM and nice stuff. Twice the price. I dropped it and didn't realize how much I actually used it. So I needed to replace it with something to get by until I could see if it was even repairable. This one I bought through Overstock was easy to purchase. The delivery times are incredible, It takes some awesome photos especially since we are talking about a the 300mm replacing the 135 but it didn't have the stabilizer or the infinity ability. I didn't realized how nice they were until I didn't have them. But for the price and quality I am very pleased. I will just learn to take my tripod along more often. I had already had the step up and down rings for the 58/72 differences so I was still able to utilize my filters and accessories. I don't think the overall moving parts are as quiet and slick sliding as the more expensive but for the price I will not complain. All of my shipments from Overstock have been so fast! I have only been disappointed in one order so far. I order a wide arrangements of products monthly/bimonthly.
I recently bought this lens and was a bit skeptical buying online. The first picture I took was of the moon one morning before going to work. I thought for sure it would just be a glow but once I downloaded it to my compute I was shocked at the clarity. The details were amazing, you can actually see craters on the moon !!! It took me a bit longer to recieve it from the quick deliverys I am used to getting from overstock but well worth the wait. It takes some getting used to from the length and weight of the lens but a tripod is a good idea to avoid camera shake. Truely a great lens,I recommend it to anyone!!
I'm certainly not a professional photographer - but I love taking pictures. I got this lens just in time to take pictures at a soccer game. (It arrived very quickly) It was great! Sometimes there is a little lag time when the light is low - but this is rare, and I haven't tried it indoors yet, but the image quality so far has been beyond my expectations. For my use, and I am fairly particular, it was an incredible find for the price.
I have been amazed how much more incredible my pictures come out from going to the Cannon Sure Shot 1980's version to this digital SLR. My previous camera takes incredible pictures but with the added features of the Digital SLR I stepped into a whole new world. I can't recommend this camera enough to all of those budding photographers that are wanting to make the leap from digital to a digital SLR and this model is way much better than the XTi.
The Canon 75-300mm SLR lens was excellent. I have used it and it delivered! I was very surprised that Overstock.com has such a great item for such a great price. I only wish that you guys could offer more photographic items at the reasonable prices you offer and I guarantee you will have many more customers. Great job A+,A+,A+,A+. Thank you.
