Canon - Telephoto zoom lens - 75 mm - 300 mm - f/4.0-5.6 III - Canon EF

Developed to succeed the EF75-300mm f/4-5.6 II, this compact, lightweight high-magnification telephoto zoom lens covers medium telephoto 75 mm to super telephoto 300mm. Like the EF75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM, it has a metal ring at the front of the zoom ring to give it an upscale image. It uses a DC motor as AF drive actuator.

Great Zoom Lens for a reasonable price!

This is a great zoom lens for the price.  I've used this lens for outdoor sporting events, Snapshots outside etc.  It's not that great in low light situations due to the aperature but outside it'll give you sharp photos.  It's lightweight so taking it on trips or travelling with this lens is not a problem.  If you use a Canon Rebel series camera or anything smaller then a Canon 5d (Full Frame) then dont forget to multiply the zoom by 1.6 (since these are crop factor cameras) to get the true range on this lens.  You dont need to spend thousands or dollars to get a great zoom lens!

Great lens

By reading the other reviews I believe I got an exceptionally good one. No problems with auto focus (unless I try to get to close to the subject) and I do not miss the IS at all even at full zoom hand held all my pictures come out just beautiful ! The only issue I have found is in high contrast you do get a lot of CA even with a CPL filter, but this is my only complaint. For the price you pay you get a really great lens.

Great lens for the price.

This lens is great for the price. I read a lot of reviews of people complaining that there is no IS on it. First of all you don't use an IS with a tripod. Secondly, using AF really doesn't give you the sharpest photos. That is what manual focal ring is for. Over all the lens MTP chart has a high rating at 75-200mm. If you want to have a good telephoto lens for a great price then this is a good buy. If you can't afford a more expensive lens and worry about possible camera shake, because there is no IS on this lens, remember you can always use mirror lock up on your camera or live view.

Good beginner lens, nothing special.

Great lens for beginners because of its low price. It's also fairly light for its focal length. It can produce a few nice photos provided you know what you're doing. But that's about where the pros end.

If you're looking for super-sharp professional quality images, you're going to have to look somewhere else.

The focus is soft to begin with, but once you go over 200mm it gets dramatically worse.

The Auto Focus has a lot of trouble with low-light situations, and is fairly picky while in AI Servo. Not to mention slow. I've had a couple instances where it took nearly 10 (ten) seconds to focus.

There's also an issue with Chromatic Aberration. Everyone loves pincushioning and purple fraying around their subject, right?

Anyway, aside from the soft focus, slow AF, and CA problems, the lack of the Image Stabilizer is truly the major downfall to this lens. I recommend using a tripod above 135mm, and I don't even attempt hand-shooting over 200mm after dozens of failed shots.

For a superior quality lens with a similar focal length that doesn't break your bank, I recommend picking up the 55-250mm IS II instead.

great starter

Got this with my T3 kit in a bundle for Black Friday. First foray stepping away from point and shoot. Read a lot of reviews and complaints. First off, it's not an L lens so people need to stop comparing. If you realize what you have, then you are good to go. As far as the 200mm to 300mm zoom goes, it's imperative to use a tripod or you will get nothing but blur. I tried this and was disappointed until I used a tripod/monopod. The zoom, with manual focus, can get you that good to sometimes great shot all the time. Until you are ready to step your game up, this is a very good lens to learn the basics. Just remember what you have and your expectations will be reached.

great for beginners

Got this extra with my rebel t3 kit, my first foray away from the point and shoot. So far so good. While I'm not a professional, I take the occasional shots whenever something catches my eye. As I've been playing with the lenses, I've noticed that if you follow the parameters of the lens, it will give you good to great results. Tried to take a picture of the big and little dipper, guess it wasn't enough light as the camera just wouldn't focus. On some subjects, it just keeps focusing, found out a couple of steps taken backward can alleviate that issue. Overall, so far, its a good lens and can give you great shots. Being that it doesn't have IS, if you zoom to the max, you'll get nothing but blur so invest in a tripod. Anything closer and the focus is great.

Poor performer at best.

Out of the box, my focus ring sticks before getting to infinity when on autofocus.
It canl not take a distant object in focus while set over 200mm on any setting. In over 100 attempts ZERO pictures are in focus. Even on landscape mode or manual with focus set on infinity and the Fstop raised to f16 are still blurry at 200mm - 300mm.
This lens is simply no good.

EXCELLENT LENS! Capture special moments with this!!!

This lens is one of my favorite! Easy to use, crisp sharpness and reliability are it's number one attributes! It can be used for digital and 35mm cameras! ANOTHER BONUS! You will not be disappointed!

I used to be a serious amateur and loved my FTb, A1 and EF bodies for 35mm. Canon FD lenses were known for their sharpness; the difference between lower priced Canon glass and the upper end lenses was the speed of the lens. The faster lenses were more expensive, but even the less expensive models were sharp.

After relying on my G9 for a few years, I am getting back into SLRs. This lens has none of the old quality. Even in-focus photos are soft and I doubt it's because of my 50D body. This lens is a huge disappointment.

Excellent quality for the price.

It is a good lens if you are just starting out in wildlife or sports I always have it with me good build quality but realize that it is not a pro lens but you can still accomplish amazing shots from it.

Eh...Good price, not quality

I bought this lens back in November, and it's a starter telephoto. After some shots later on, however, there was noticeable problems with the lens and photos. The lens' autofocus is very slow, even my 18-55 is faster. The 75-300 is also prone to chromatic aberration, which leads to purple fringing on edges of subjects, which are a problem. I do recommend this lens, however, to someone on a tight budget. But, overall, as a photographer, I'm not exactly pleased.

It's ok...

This lens is ok. It produces really sharp images and the auto-focus is average speed. What I don't like is, it is really cheaply made. When I got it, some of the metal around the lens was chipped, the plastic was faded, etc. If you are looking for a lens that performs well that is well priced, then I would get this lens. If you are willing to spend more, don't get it.

Great air shots

I used this lens with my new camera at the Sun N Fun air show in Lakeland FL in April of 2012. I found it easy for my spouse and I to use. We were taking shots of fast moving FA18 as well as older bi-planes. The lens did very well with night shots of the air show.

Cannon is an awesome camera

The Cannon lens in conjunction with the T2i camera model has made my amateur photos look very professional. I have taken the camera and EF75-300 lens to many different functions including weddings. I have been offered an opportunity to take family photos for a church function next month because of the quality of the photos. The lens is perfect and is easy to use. It may be auto-focused or manually focused which is good for action shots. Very pleased with this purchase.

Disappointed with the lens

I used this lens at the 2012 Indian Wells Professional Tennis Tournament. Inside stadium shooting at night was very disappointing as I could not used a flash. With courtside seats costing $100.00 a piece, I had expected to get very sharp pictures of the greats. Not so. the focus was very uneven and blurry around the immediate subject matter causing distraction to the eye. The highest shutter speed I could attain was 70/sec. I used the sport shooting mode and the manual mode. I also used a monopod to improve steadiness but this still did not achieve the result I was looking for. The lens performed better in bright daylight but late afternoon light once again degraded sharpness. It was too bad because the compostion of my pictures was good. I welcome any advice as to how to improve my technique using this lens from more experienced and better photographers. My email is attached.

Good Zoom

It's a nice entry level zoom for Canon owners. I don't use mine with a lot of frequency, but when I do use it, it preforms as well as my other Canon lenses. It is a nice lens for it's price and something that every novice photographer should at least try out.
