Good For the Price

  • Excerpt: This is good for the price. If you're here looking at this lens then you are probably a consumer and not looking for pro level quality. This is a good lens for it's price but know that you will upgrade if you are serious about photography.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Not Durable

Telephoto Review EF 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 I

  • Excerpt: For a beginning photographer this is a decent lens for the price. It is by no means a high quality product, however, it is a great way to practice using a larger lens. I only bought the product because I wanted to have a second lens for necessary situations. For the record, B&H had the best price for the lens...
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Not Functional

  • Summary: I cannot say whether or not this lens is worth buying being as I revived a defective one. I can say the lens is made well, doesn't feel to heavy in the hands. Its a real solid piece of glass.

Good lens for the money.

  • Excerpt: I've had the lens for about a month now, and overall I'm happy with it. I use it primarily for wildlife and birdwatching. The biggest drawback I've found is the weight of the lens. It's heavier than the camera and unless you shoot at a high shutter speed, it's difficult to keep in focus. I prefer not to use a tripod because it isn't practical for where I go. Also, the autofocus is a bit slow. The picture quality is good, and overall I'm pleased with it.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Good zoom at reasonable price

  • Excerpt: This lens will complement my 55-250 zoom. I bought it in preparation for upgrading to a full size sensor camera on which my EF-S lenses won't work. I haven't had a chance to use it much yet but the construction seems solid and the autofocus is fast and accurate. And, the price can't be beat!
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction

Was just OK

  • Excerpt: I returned this lense to get its big brother with the I.S. When I took pictures using this lense with out a monopod or tripod there was some noticeable lense shaking going on. Image quality was good when you had a solid base. Good lense if you dont have the extra bucks for the I.S.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

A Servicable Lens

  • Excerpt: I bought this to replace an old Tamron 70-300 which had failed, so I wasn't expecting a lot. I use it to photograph wildlife mostly. The lens build quality is adequate although I wouldn't bang it around too much. The auto-focus is only fair, but the resolution is pretty good. Unless you are doing fine art photography this lens will serve you well.
  • Cons: Slow, Slow Focus, Slow fragile
