    • Pretty good lense overall
      Reviewed at

      This lense was given to me by a good friend. My hands shake a lot due to Essential Tremors. This lense does not have IS which makes it harder to use without a tripod. Other than that I'm glad to have this lense!

    • Tolerable Lens
      Reviewed at

      I've used this lens heavily over the last year and I'd say its a decent beginner's zoom lens. The lens is pretty lightweight, easy to use, and has a good focal range, but using the longer lengths can be tricky since there isn't image stabilization. You get some slight optical imperfections at 300mm as well and the image quality can be a bit soft at times. If you want a zoom lens for occasional use, this is fine, but people who rely on this focal range, especially professionals, may want to look into the IS version or Canon's 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II lens. if your hobbyist, though, this lens is convenient to have.

      Reviewed at

      I've owned this lens for almost 3 years and it has never taken a picture in focus whether in auto or manual focus. Around every subject regardless of lighting, the edges are just too soft and the subject just doesn't have focus. The closer you are to 70mm the better it gets, but it's still pronounced. I looked up information on several forums about this lens and it appears to be normal for it, so I never sent the lens back to Canon for repair. I've used this lens for shooting weddings, airshows, extreme sports competitions, hiking and wildlife. I give it a shot every time I shoot something and every time I'm disappointed as soon see the images on the computer. They look fantastic on a tiny screen and if you fill the frame with the subject, but there can be no cropping on images with this lens, it will make the softness very pronounced.

      This lens works perfect. I'm not a pro by any means but the pictures we've taken look very good.

    • Pretty impressed
      Reviewed at

      I got this lense the same time I got my camera. And I have to say, I'm pretty impressed. I wouldn't recommend this to a professional. But for a beginner or a intermediate photographer it's a perfect fit. It's a great lens and I would recommend this to anyone who would like a medium duty lens.

    • Good Lense
      Reviewed at

      This is a very good lense for the price. I take lots of sport action shots and it works very well. I have looked at other lenses that are over $1000 and they offer more quality but when viewing pictures from both, you can't really tell a difference.

    • It's great for it's price
      Reviewed at

      For starters this is not a lens for professionals and I'm not one anyway so..., knowing that this is a great lens. It has the features you'll need to take it into the field and get some really good photos under your belt while getting use to the handling and functions of a telephoto lens. After you master this one and chose to use your camera rather then park it in the closet you may end up buying the next level up but for starting out or even for a an everyday knock around lens this one is perfect and can handle some abuse with no trouble. For the cost you really can't beat it. Overall the images will be some you can take a level of pride in. I have taken some longer shots (around 50 to 70 yards) of birds which came out pretty darn good. After printing them I was fairly satified with it and I'm happy enough with it to say "I would" buy it again for the price. After all the cost is nothing compared to other high end lens's and it's a little toughy that will not make you worry to take it in the woods or the city and get a few bumps, it can handle it. If you buy one for non-professional work you'll have some really neat photos that people will admire including you.

    • GREAT value
      Reviewed at

      This is a great lense! I just bought it with my first DSLR in a package. i got the Rebel XS. I love the lense. I gave it four stars for features because it is not IS. I dont think that this is a big deal considering the price. I have been able to obtain some great pictures with it and i have no complaints. I have had it for about a month or so and have used it a lot. I have heard complaints about the autofocus but it is plenty fast enough for me, even fast enough to keep up with my 1.5 year old yellow lab puppy!

    • Follow up...
      Reviewed at

      This is a follow up to my post/review from a few months back. I've been using this lens now for quite a bit of time and have shot around a lot with it. One thing I've noticed and had read before is that the lens tends to shoot dark. I've found this to be true so adequate lighting (natural or via flash) is critical to compensate for this. I love the Canon Speedlite 430 II flash and it's exposure compensation feature which helps immensely. This lens can also generate quite a bit of noise so be sure to have the ISO set correctly for the conditions on your camera. Also, you'll need to shoot on "P" mode or "TV/SV" mode so you can align the focal length with the lens size; example, 300mm lens, 300 or more shutter speed to eliminate camera shake. A lot to remember but if you do these things you'll be happy with this lens. Still a thumbs up for price/value! Enjoy and shoot well...

    • Great With Understanding
      Reviewed at

      Once I got to understand the lens, it worked very well. For fast focus I do my best manually, spending less than a second. At the same time I can adjust the camera settings w/ my other hand. Then I flip the AF switch on, 1/2 press shutter and away I go. If the shot is far away or the aperture is higher than 11, I can just turn the AF off again. The Subject can move a fair distance without loosing focus. This is a great lens for the price. Be warned, many shots will only work with a tripod. I have the best results if the Sun or its reflections are not in the front of the lens. I would recommend using a lens shade and a polarizer when shooting outdoors. P.S. If the user is not fast, the camera never will be, you must conceive of what might come next. Always be prepared.
