low cost, and it works, much better lenses available, for a price premium

  • Summary: The Canon 70-300mm, It's great for outdoors in the sun. It's not bad, for overcast outdoors. it's not good inside a house, without flash or tripod. It good points are; useful focal length range, small size, light weight, midrange price and Image Stabilization.

  • Summary: Based upon previous comments I chose this lens as a beginner. I used it to take pics of Tobago's beautiful landscapes and Beaches, but was a bit disappointed. I suppose I expected to see great telescopic images especially when zooming in on the different landscapes and various Fort Sites.

Nice optics but.....,

  • Excerpt: This lens performs as it should but the quality of the moving parts is disappointing. It feels poorly tolleranced. I'd like to check out others in a store to see if this is to design.

  • Summary: It has taken a lot of practice to know how to shoot with this lens. The image stabilization is incredible! You really don't have to worry about camera shake at any reasonable shutter speed. I've zoomed out to 300mm and still taken good pictures at 1/100.

Not a bad lens for the price

  • Summary: This Canon 70-300mm IS USM is certainly not a bad lens for its modest price. It performed adequately at a recent adult soccer match hand-held in the IS #2 mode at speeds of 1/1250 sec. or faster in wide open Aperture priority setting with my Canon 50D, but it was noticeably "soft" at 300mm.

Canon 70-300 Lens

  • Summary: I found this lens, slow & cumbersome, but returned mainly as found it sold for less through another Rakuten 3rd party vendor...Rakuten did NOT honor 'price match'...ended up costing me shipping fees, etc to make return, so didn't save all that much, just principle..

Not a fan of the brush included with the kit.

  • Summary: When I ordered this accessory kit, it was the same price as the lens by itself. The lens is great and there are plenty of other reviews on it by photographers more qualified than me to speak to it. The accessories are my focus here. The cloths, filters, storage bag, and air puffer are all decent.

Very sharp until you get past 200mm

mellotone2, Ebay

  • Summary: I like to shoot sports and nature. The lens is light enough to carry around all day. 300mm is okay but 400mm would be better. The lens isn't long enough for small birds in flight. The lens is very sharp from 70-200mm. However at 300mm wide open, the sharpness isn't there.
