Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM Lens

PhotoReview
1 January 2009
  • Summary: A compact, high-magnification zoom lens with few aberrations and effective image stabilisation.The EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM is Canon's second lens with three-layer type Diffractive Optics (DO). It can be used with both 'APS-C' (where it covers angles of view equivalent to 112mm to 480mm) and 35mm-sized image sensors.
  • Pros: You require a relatively light and inconspicuous long zoom lens for travelling and/or outdoor photography., You want a telephoto lens with fast autofocusing and effective stabilisation., You like soft-looking out-of-focus backgrounds., You require distortion-free images.
  • Cons: You shoot lots of close-ups and/or low-light shots., You're not prepared to use the lens hood.

  • Excerpt: Perfekt! - Fremragende rejseobjektiv - IS kompenserer for blænde - God byggekvalitet - "killer-kombo" sammen med 24-70 2.8L
  • Pros: - Vejer og fylder meget lidt (er lettere end 24-70 2.8L USM), - Zoom kan låses, - God til portræt, da baggrund sløres, - Dobbelt IS (vertikalt og horisontalt
  • Cons: - en anelse soft., - 70-200 2.8L IS er skarpere (men meget meget tungere)
