Great Lens

  • Summary: I've only had this lens for a week but I already love it. I have wanted it for a long time but the price held me back. I am glad that I finally made the purchase with no regrets. I have had the Canon 100-400 push-pull for about five years and love it.

Simply awsome, but not for everyone

  • Excerpt: Simply awsome. Excellent performance under different light conditions (better if attached to a 40D or higher camera). Versatile as the wide angle and 300mm could be. However is not for every one, since it is heavy and you need to be inshore in order to manage the weight under sport or social event...
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Summary: I bought this about a year and a half ago to use on my 7D and I love it! It is a little pricey and a bit heavy, BUT a great lens. Works fine indoors and out. I'm able to stand at one end of the basketball court and get good shots on both ends.

  • Summary: Outstanding product. One of Canon's best lenses. It is shade heavy but once you get used to its weight, it serves you well through the entire focal length range from near wide 28mm to long telephoto 300mm.

  • Summary: The Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM AF Lens is the finest piece of glass I have ever used. I have it mounted on my 5D MK III and shoot with ISO set at 1250 and have some of the best photographs I have ever seen or taken.

This really is an outstanding lens

CdnChris, B&H Photo
21 April 2015
  • Excerpt: I bought this lens for a trip to the American southwest, where I'd be shooting the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley and a variety of other vista landscapes. I'm a perfectionist who really likes to use the proper lens for the application, and I was wondering if there really is a one-perfect-all 'rounder...
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Lens Creep

Buy the 70-300L instead

Krod, Amazon
21 April 2015
  • Summary: I really wanted to like this due to it's range but the 70-300 is much better clarity wise and 1/2 the weight. I read the reviews on this being heavy but wanted to muscle through it hoping it wasn't as bad as described...well it was that heavy.

  • Summary: I bought this lens last year to take along on my semi regular visits to my local zoo and I adore it so. Despite the weight I like I don't have to constantly change lenses out. I use it on my 50D mostly and my 6D sometimes (50D mostly for me especially anything animal related cause of its fps...

I have to say that the 2 stars are for my disappointment rather than the lens quality

Sonia j, Amazon

  • Summary: I rarely rate a product so low and before you read on, I have to say that the 2 stars are for my disappointment rather than the lens quality. I was extremely excited to see this kind of range on a lens.
