A very good lens

  • Summary: I purchased it as a used lens and was extremely surprised to find it looked like it was new. I was even surprised how well the packaging was to be shipped. It gave me great sharp images the few times I have used it.

Excellent value for a mid-range lens.

  • Summary: I'm an amateur, several years experience with EOS cameras. This is a decent distance lens when used on a tripod. Do not recommend it as a walking around lens, nor do I suppose anyone would purchase it as such. At 300mm you definitely need a tripod. I have taken decent handheld portraits.

Good for the money

Jc, Amazon

  • Summary: This lens is a nice tele for beginners. It takes fairly crisp images with proper light. There is no stabilization so low light situations, (even evenings or shaded areas) will require a tripod. The lens is quite heavy but that is to be expected. The build quality is a tad suspect.

Nice upgrade from EF 75-300 III

A. Krenz "BrdNrd", Amazon

  • Summary: This lens has sharper image quality and less aberrations than the Canon EF 75-300 III. White edges have almost no purple fringing. the image has significantly better contrast also. If you want to upgrade from the Canon 75-300 III and don't absolutely need image stabilizer than this lens is it.

  • Summary: This lense is a great compliment to the standard lenses available for most brands of camera's. The picturee quality is fine. I also have an 18-135 lense as the base model with image stabilization.

Not the greatest photos but still a great value to experiment with.

  • Summary: This is a good lens to mess around with using an adapter. I bought an adapter from Amazon for my Sony Alpha NEX 3 to use with this lens. Because you have no stabilizer in the lens it is very difficult to get a clear shot, as well as the focal range difference from the back of the lens to the sensor.

Great lens at a great price!

  • Summary: This is so easy to operate and the quality of the shot is more than I thought it would be. It is heavier than I thought it would be but, nothing to keep you from buying this lens! Great lens at a great price.
