Exactly as Expected

  • Excerpt: This 70-300 covers a wide range of focal length at the higher end of the spectrum. As a F/4-5.7 lens it is a seems like a compact and very handy size. It isn't overly large or anything like that. My biggest qualm is that the auto-focus is not up to the level of some of these newer AF systems (Canon 5D Mk3, Canon 7D Mk2). At this point, I cannot attest to duability/construction of the lens. Most lenses like this I've used previously are solid.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Rugged
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus

Nice cannon zoom, great price.

  • Summary: Nice cannon zoom for my rebel 2ti digital. Auto focus a little slower than smaller lenses. This is an OEM lens but comes in a white box, had a warranty card included however. The price was about $200 less than BestBuy wanted for this same lens. Look carefully there are a couple of different versions of Cannon's 300m zoom lenses. One is a very cheap version that sells for less than $200 which I do not recommend.

Value for Money

  • Excerpt: I've been using this lens for wildlife photography and have zero complaints. It is not as sharp as the 70-200 L lenses but I do this for fun and have yet to feel like l wish I had spent more on a better tele zoom. I don't think pro's would consider this lens but for enthusiasts like me, it's the perfect mix of performance, size, and price. Plus it's black so you you aren't screaming "I'm rich!" when photographing in lesser developed nations.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
