THE BEST ON MARKET ZOOM LENS

Summary: I got this for replace my older Canon Lens zoom 70-300 mm . Well made heavy, solid product. Tested on long range zoom made slightly on sides distortion but acceptable. So far couldn't t find better for Canon 6D.
Summary: There's already a lot of write up's on how the lens performs. I think its a fantastic lens, nice images, and well built. I wont go into details further. I am just gonna give a tip on how I now use this lens. Before buying this lens, thought that 2.3KG was no big deal .. its really a BIG deal..(at least for me) did not use this lens for about 2 years until I got the BEST accessory for it - the EOS-M (@$299+$95 adapter) EOS-M is just great pairing with this lens.
Summary: Length:: 7:35 Mins Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM Lens The only draw back, honestly, is the weight. This is a fairly heavy lens. :( OK now for the good! I have a video to highlight and show you this lens. I really like this lens I have used it in about 22 different countries. It is my main and my go to lens. No changing on and off of 5 different lenses. Put this on and your done! As I mentioned, it is a bit heavy. The push pull is nice.
Summary: I purchased this for my recent trip to Europe to cut down on my travel bag. It worked great. It is a quality lens and provides all I need for most situations. I have not critically reviewed performance at the largest apertures in wide angle mode, but I tried to use a medium aperture based on reviews I read.
Great one-lens solution for great looking pictures.

Summary: Great lens, exactly what I wanted and hoped for. I like taking good pictures and believe better equipment helps you do that, but by no means am I a professional-level photographer. I would say I am more of an enthusiast at this point. I really was hoping to be able to get a long zoom as well as be able to take nice close-up portraits with this lens, and it has worked out great. I use it mainly to take photos of kids' performances and sporting activities.
Conclusion: I have been a pro since 1981. I have used 35mm, 2 1/4 square, and 4x5 in studio and on location. This lens is the one I use almost every time I shoot. I have the 16x35 2.8 and the 50 1.2 and I love them both, but when I am shooting sessions or weddings... this is the lens that I use almost exclusively. I have two 5D Mk2 bodies and the 28-300mm lens stays on one of them all the time. The clarity, color, sharpness, contrast, image stabilization, ease of use, durability...
Pros: Fast auto-focus, Superior build quality, Super-sharp images, ease of use
Conclusion: As the title suggests, this is my GoTo lens. I currently carry a 10-22mm W/A, 28-135mm standard, and 100mm macro along with this lens. 9-times out of 10, the 28 to 300mm is on my 7D camera body. The pictures are sharp. I was at Hearst Castle and in-doors where flash photography isn't allowed and blown away with the quality of the pictures I ended up with, even in the dark theater room. The focus is fast and true. The colors are brilliant.
Pros: Fast auto-focus, Superior build quality, Super-sharp images
Cons: can't be used with 1:4 or 2:0 extender, weight
