Very nice travel lens

  • Excerpt: Half the weight of my 70-200mm f2.8 for traveling and coupled with my 5D Mark 3 I'm not losing enough light to negatively effect my images!

Great travel lens, plus outdoor events and lifestyle.

  • Excerpt: Built like and L lens with similar price, many ask what is it for? It is small yet heavy and not the fastest at f4.5. Yet, it offers high quality optics for normal light conditions, fits in a small bag and is versatile for everyday use. That versatility is why you would buy this lens.

Good telephoto lens.

  • Summary: The lens takes good usable prints about 90% of the time. The L series lenses are clearer but barely. A professional photographer I was read said that the photographer takes the picture, more expensive gear won't make the pics any better!
  • Pros: Price, it is black NOT white, clarity.
  • Cons: Front of lens moves during focus.

Good compact design, useful range

  • Excerpt: Does exactly as it was intended. It's not as sharp as my L Series lens, but they are not telephoto zooms. I think it's perfectly acceptable on my Canon 5D II and 1Ds Mark II. The barrel does extend itself and can be annoying if I forget the set the lock when walking and hiking around (guess that's...

Not happy

  • Excerpt: Maybe it was my mistake but I had high expectations on this lens. I had the opportunity of taking the EF 400 F4 DO IS on a couple of air shows. The Diffractive Lens technology works great on this lens but its not the same with the 70-300.

Disappointing Lens

Va Photograper, Adorama
25 February 2014
  • Excerpt: Superb build quality. It is nearly identical in size to the 24-105 F4l. Solidly built. The interest in this lens is the 300mm reach in a greatly shortened barrel length. It does not broadcast your presence the way a 70-200 tube does. Good for street shooting. Disappointing results.
  • Pros: Durable, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

Great choice for travel by car and foot

  • Excerpt: I used this lens while on my last vacation in the North Central USA. I mostly kept this lens on my Canon 6D. Took photos of North Woods scenery and wild life such as Dear and Eagles. The smaller size for this 70-300mm makes it easier to carry for long periods of time. Very pleased with this lens
