Summary: i got this lens specifically for shooting sports (soccer mostly), and I'm completely impressed! Most of the games are in the daytime, or in well-lit stadiums so the f4 was a great fit for me versus the much more expensive f2.8. If have the 70-200 f2.8 anyway. Quality is superb.
Summary: Bought this after lugging around my 100-400 for years on the hiking trail. Now I can take this lighter lens instead. I get great shots of wildlife. I do miss the variable range sometimes but don't miss the weight on my back and shoulders. Takes very clear images.

Summary: This is a fine lens, but I found myself wishing that I had gotten the 100-400mm lens for more flexability. If you're thinking of buying this lens, first consider the type of photography you plan to use it for, and then decide whether this prime lens or a telezoom will better meet your needs.
480mm (which is pretty decent for bird/wildlife photography)

Summary: Bought this lens used and use it on my Canon Rebel T3i (EOS600D). The 1.6 crop factor due to a smaller sensor extends the focal reach to approx. 480mm (which is pretty decent for bird/wildlife photography). However, this also affects the aperture in terms of depth of field.
Summary: I was debating between Canon 300, 400, 100-400 and Tamron 150-600... After trying all out... I guess I found the one I love... I attached a Canon TC 1.4x and everything was awesome. I got sharp pictures with all the tests that I conducted.
Summary: I'd like to start by saying that I'm assuming that I got a bad copy of this lens, judging from all the great reviews it got. But from what I learned about it, even a bad copy, prompted me to give a review.
Summary: Awesome lens. Just buy it. Can't go wrong. its actually pretty light for a prime 300 lens. tack sharp. image stabilization is good, but I don't have the newer Is models so any IS is good to me! Colors are super saturated and wonderful. the only issue is that fact that it's a prime!
