Summary: I own the Canon 70-200/2.8 IS II but wanted a light weight compact non white long focal length zoom to carry while traveling. This is a specialty lens that works well for travelers who do not want a lot of size and weight in their backpack but yet want a quality pro type lens.
Summary: Finally used this lens and couldn't be happier. I bought it reconditioned from Adorama around Xmas and was not expecting it to come packaged like new. I really went back and forth on getting the non-DO EF 70-300 or this lens, but didn't want to spend the extra $800 and decided to take a shot.
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.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Excerpt: Without doubt this is the finest all around zoom lens for outdoors. The DO's compact size carries a huge advantage when in the field without significantly effecting your end product. The color is outstanding and, with ample light, produces sharp pictures.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction, Versatility
