REVIEW: Canon EF 300mm f/4 L IS USM

29 July 2008
  • Conclusion: The build quality alone qualifies the price of this lens, which appears as though it will outlast any owner! The built in hood is a neat touch that just about escapes getting in the way of filters. The only let down is the slightly sluggish (for the class of lens) autofocus.
  • Pros: Excellent build quality, Good contrast and colour rendition, Retractable lens hood a nice touch.
  • Cons: AF a little slow for class of lens, Resolution may not be up to future sensors (although pixel race has now slowed)

  • Excerpt: This is a sharp, compact and light weight, image-stabilized lens that packs a lot of performance into a relatively affordable package. There is a widespread view that the image stabilized (IS) version of the EF 300mm f/4 is not quite as sharp as the earlier non-IS view.

Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS USM Lens Review

The Digital Picture
22 July 2004
  • Excerpt: The Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS USM Lens is another excellent lens in the Canon L Series . While it has enough focal length to feel long, this very-well-built lens remains relatively small and light. Image quality from the 300 f/4L IS lens is excellent.

EF 300 mm f/4L IS USM

13 November 2009
  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 300 mm f/4L IS USM is a very well-done lens, and the comparison between the cons and the pros can be the proof of it. Mind you the cons are the effect of the age – after all, the lens was launched 10 years ago.
  • Cons: average work against bright light,, stabilization efficient only at the level of 2 EV.

Canon EF 300mm f/4 USM L IS - Full Format Review / Test

29 August 2009
  • Conclusion: In the marketplace the Canon EF 300mm f/4 USM L IS is probably suffering from the fact that it is "only" a 300mm lens. There are numerous zoom lenses with such a tele setting out including the stiff in-house competition from the similar priced EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 USM L IS and the new EF 70-300mm...

  • Summary: Samsung NX10 przypomina wyglądem lustrzankę, choć z formalnego punktu widzenia jest aparatem kompaktowym z wymienną optyką. Trzeba przyznać, że zdjęcia aparatu nie oddają jego rzeczywistej wielkości.
  • Cons: automatyczne odszumianie plików JPEG, szczególnie intensywne na wysokich czułościach,, problemy z automatycznym balansem bieli w przypadku światła żarowego,, tendencja do przesycania kolorów w JPEG,, spadek nasycenia kolorów na wysokich ISO na plikach RAW,, ingerencja w RAW-y na poziomie prądu ci...
