Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM Review

  • Summary: This is a really lovely lens that has been a positive pleasure to test. It is fairly expensive but this is a professional zoom and is priced accordingly. As such it cannot be considered to be a bargain but neither is it unreasonably positioned within Canon’s line-up.
  • Pros: Ultra-reliable AF and IS systems
  • Cons: Poorer sharpness past f/16

Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM review

Amateur Photographer

  • Summary: Canon's EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM lens doesn't have the impressive numbers you would expect from a professional optic, especially in the aperture range, and its compact size has meant some of the sleek features such as internal zoom haven't been possible.

Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM Lens Review

ePHOTOzine
30 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Canon have given the 70-300mm range an L-series makeover and as a result this lens sports silent autofocus, with full-time manual override, weather sealing, optical stabilisation and tougher build quality than you might normally find on a lens covering this range.
  • Pros: Excellent build quality, Very good sharpness that is consistent through the range, Low CA, Low distortion, Effective optical stabilisation
  • Cons: May seem expensive for a f/4-5.6 zoom (although the premium is probably worth the extra in this case)

  • Conclusion: We'd be hard pushed to find a weakness in this lens. The only negative we can find is the edge sharpness at 300mm with a wide aperture selected, but we're clutching at straws to be honest. This Canon optic is very impressive.
