I may as well weld this to my 5D3

Roscoe4321, Canon

  • Conclusion: I have owned this lens for eight months and it, together with an EF 1.4x III, stay on my 5D Mark III more than 90% of the time. I absolutely love this lens, and picked it out to get a bit more reach over my EF 200 f/2.8L II (also a superb lens). The autofocus is fast, dead accurate, and the color and contrast are outstanding. With the teleconverter image quality is still excellent.
  • Pros: Fast auto-focus, Superior build quality, Super-sharp images

Great lens at a great price!

Adorama
3 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I use this lens for action shots or wildlife. The images are sharp and clear. If I need a little more reach I can slip the 1.4 in line and go up to 420mm @F5.6. The lens is lite-weight so it's easy to hike with or move around tracking birds or other wildlife.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Sharp Birds In Flight, Strong Construction

Canon EF 300mm f/4L USM Telefoto

D. Pappas "DenVette", Amazon
1 March 2014
  • Summary: This is another great lens from Canon. Could not see spending much, much more for the 2.8 at this time. Clear and sharp, use with a 1.4 adapter and no problems with the lens at 5.6. Love it.

Beware of shipping dates promised...Love the lens

  • Summary: I just bought this lens 2-20-14 @ 1pm the message for Prime customers said order w/ in the next 9 hrs and get your purchase by 2-22-14. I just got confirmation and it's not coming until 2-24-14. Amazon disappointment not Canon. As far as the Canon lens is concerned it's the best. If I hadn't dropped my old one I wouldn't need to replace it. The decision to replace was easy. Aside from great quality it has a close focus of under 5 ft.

My first L lens - astonishingly sharp

Terry Doolittle "Germannick", Amazon
14 February 2014
  • Summary: I've been seriously into photography for a couple years now and finally decided to get an ultra-high quality lens. I decided on the f/4 300 mm prime rather than a zoom or a longer focal length because, as a nature photographer, I wanted something which would handle twilight (when animals are most active) and would be fast enough to get the 1/1250 or quicker shutter speed needed for birds in flight at a relatively low iso.
