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.
