One of Canon's best

  • Summary: I could give it a 5 but nothing is perfect. The EF 300 is still a heavy lens although you can handhold it in good light. This lens is very sharp and you won't be disappointed. This lens works well with the Canon 1.4 and 2 x extenders so it gives you some options in terms of possible focal lengths. This lens is just incredibly sharp and if you can afford it, well worth the expense.

  • Summary: Love the Mark 2 version of this lens. 'Sweet' ain't the word folks. Tack sharp image. Ultra-fast precision focus. Totally hand-holdable, even with a gripped DSLR. Get it. Now.

  • Summary: This lens is a compromise, which is not a bad thing. Especially since it is a very, very, good compromise. It is light enough to carry and hike with, small enough to go in your carry-on on a regular airliner, long enough for many (not all) wildlife photography tasks, and fast enough to function well in low light, or to keep functioning reasonably well with teleconverters. I find it an especially good "big gun" to take when traveling by air.
  • Pros: light weight and compact for a super telephoto. Superior sharpness.
  • Cons: price, you do need the teleconverters for wildlife photography, not long enough for birds (except big tame waterbirds).

  • Conclusion: Meget fornøyd med dette objektivet.
  • Pros: Meget skarpt fra største blender og lite vignetering. Bygget som en tanks.
  • Cons: Eneste er at det er litt ungt, så en monopod eller lignende er nesten påkrevd. Dog mye lettere enn 400mm utgaven av samme objektiv
