All I hoped for.

  • Excerpt: I bought this lens to go along with a 5d III that I just purchased. It is a replacement for a 70-300 non L. This lens is a lot faster to focus and very sharp. I am not sure how much of the speed is the lens or the camera. I kept my 7d body and have used the lens to take soccer photos of my grandson. I sense it is faster on the 7d body too. The added weight is not a problem, but I also bought a mono pod (not used yet).
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction

My Favorite Lens!!

  • Excerpt: I always pack this lens in my camera bag. Even though it is a bit heavy if you are walking around with it. Put it on a tripod and all is great! I still grab that one first to take the shots!! As long as I have enough room to back up that is the one for me!! Love the Bokeh that it gives in the background. Images are sharp too!
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Great Lens

  • Excerpt: I am using this lens on my 7D. At first look I was intimidated by its size and weight but that did not last long. After ten minutes of shooting it felt very comfortable and balanced. It is sharp, the auto focus is fast and the image stabilizer is amazing. This is a great lens for my landscape photography. It gives me the range that I am looking for and I am completely satisfied with this lens and its results.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction

Worth the Money!!!

  • Excerpt: This lens is super sharp. I use it with a 40D though I am planning on upgrading to the 7D MkII when (if) it's released. The IS is awesome especially at the long end of the zoom it really comes in handy. The lens is much more compact than the 70-200mm L lenses and gives you that extra zoom. As most reviews on here, I was worried about the f4-5.6, though after using the lens, I quickly forgot about that and was just loving this lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Sharp, Strong Construction
  • Cons: No Tripod Collarmount

  • Excerpt: Purchased primarily for outdoor sports photography and video. Outstanding lens. Gets a little heavy when recording video free hand. Would recommend a monopod or tripod for longer videos. Weight wasn't an issue for me on photos.

  • Excerpt: I was able to use the EF 70-300 mm f/4-5.6L IS USM lens during an outdoor wedding. The lens is well balanced when coupled with the Canon 5D III. The pictures came out great, as expected in normal daylight.

Great Lens

  • Excerpt: Love this lens. Gives me the high quality photos and videos I want. I wanted a camera and lens to shoot sports photography (track, volleyball, and softball), travel, and wildlife. I researched extensively what to buy and am not disappointed at all with this lens. I debated on the 70-200L f4 because of the lighter weight (1/2 lb), but when it came down to it, didn't want to loose the distance. It does get heavy when recording longer races, but is worth it.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Can be heavy

Fabulous lens

  • Excerpt: I've had this lens about two weeks now and shot somewhere around five hundred images with it. It has been an upgrade from the non-L version of the 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS USM lens. This is my second L-series lens and I am becoming sold on them as the way to go. This lens is very sharp, almost astoundingly sharp. I have been using it on a 70D body and it is truly fantastic. The image quality is phenomenal and a good upgrade from the earlier lens.

Louis Balboa 70-300mm field review

  • Excerpt: I am a nature photographer. I shoot a lot of birds of all sizes so I frequently photograph fast moving subjects. I have the Canon 800mm so I bought this lens to supplement a shorter field. This lens feels great when you hold it and it performs as expected. It produces sharp clear images images that will impress even a picky photographer like myself. I do recommend this lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
