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!
This is a very cool lens, makes for some fabulous pictures. But you have to clean it carefully every time you use it. Or dirt gets inside the lens & you have to send it back to Canon to get it cleaned.
Did lots of research between T3 and T3i; replacing an old first-edition digital Rebel X. Decided the additional $$ for the T3i wasn't worth the additional megapixels (T3 has 12; T3i has 18 vs 6 for the X that was being replaced). Very happy with camera and help Sears personnel provided (via phone) in ordering.
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!
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.
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.
<p>Great lens, not too expensive</p>
<p>An amazing addition to my new SLR camera! It came as a package deal which knocked like $100 bucks off the price of the lens! I have a canon film slr camera and it is also interchangeable with it! Great purchase!</p>
<p>I love this lens even though I don't really use it too often. The main reason for that would be this lens would be, obviously used for taking shots at great distance. If you are trying to get a shot of someone in front of you with this lens, it will not work. I mean it's pretty obvious, but still.</p>
<p>I have yet to find anything wrong with this lens. The photos come out great and it's well worth the money.</p>
<p>If you want a zoom lense, but don't want a several hundred to thousand dollar luxury lense, this is a good choice. For the price you will be satisfied. No, it won't be as clear as a more expensive lense, but you will have fun with it. </p>
<p>If you want to eliminate tremor, pay the extra money for the bulit in technology to counter the tremor. If you only use a tripod, you may not care. I like to take most of my photos freehand, so I should have invested in the anti-tremor. Live and learn.</p>
<p>Again, buy a "lense cover leash," you won't be sorry and they are very cheap.</p>
<p>What can I say but nice lens for the money. Lightweight, nice looking, very crisp photos. A little difficult to put filters on as the threads can be a bit finicky. The auto focus is nice but can be a little confused when trying to do longer range pics. Controlling which area the camera focuses solves this little prob though. All in all I am very pleased with the lens, but make sure it will fit in your bag. The cannon medium bag is perfect for the fit.</p>

<p>I use this lens often. I have a few Canon slr digital cameras, which I interchange the lens' with. They take beautiful shots from zooming in to classic and panaramic. I would definately recommmend this lens as a add-on.</p>
I enjoy this lens. It is good to use for landscape or sport pics. The zoom is great and it takes good pics.
I got this lense for my daughter and she loves that zoom! As an amatuer photographer working on a 4-H project, she says the range of zoom is great indoors and out. Good lighting & a solid steady hand (or tripod) is a big factor is getting a good quality photo with this lense.
In the Description is says it says" High-speed, silent autofocus by USM" It is silent but IT IS NOT USM. It uses a DC motor. all USM cameras have the Ultasonic On the Camera as well as the Lens cap. Have contacted Sears reference this as this appears to be incorrectly advertised. Taken right from canons own website "The optical system, construction, and exterior are the same as the EF 75-300 mm f/4-5.6 III USM&#65533;s. The difference is that it uses a DC motor instead of a USM to drive the AF." This is not a USM lens.
