Canon EF 70-300mm f4-5.6 IS USM

 

Good performance, decent value and excellent image stabilisation. However, it’s pretty bulky and suffers from ‘zoom creep’

Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 USM IS - Full Format Lab Test / Review

 

The Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 USM IS is a decent performer and a great value offer. It is capable of delivering superb results at 70mm (for a slow speed lens) and it's still pretty good at 200mm and even 300mm. The vignetting is comparatively moderate...

EF 70-300 mm f/4-5.6 IS USM

 

the image resolution for 300 mm could be better, weak against bright light, autofocus, which could be described with one word - disaster

In our summery it would be worth answering two questions. How does the Canon look in comparison with a very popular Sigma 70-300 APO because of the good relation between the quality and the price? Is it worth paying extra for the Canona 70-200 f/4L? -...

Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens

 

A major improvment over the non- IS lens....worth the price. I can take action sports shots at full zoom with no blur. Downside...because it is only 4/5.6 aperture you will get some noise on cloudy days and when shooting indoors with poor lighting...

IS...USM...VERY STURDY

NEED GOOD LIGHT TO TAKE THE BEST PICTURES

Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens

 

f you buy one of these, be sure to test it thouroughly before accepting it. I had seen great reviews on this lens, and good test results on SLR gear. So I ordered one. When I received and tested it, to my dismay, its edge and corner performance (on a...

lightweight, IS, tack-sharp in center

Corners and left side of this lens are so bad that the lens is unuseable at ANY aperture

Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens

 

I bought this lens along with my 30D. I have to say this is a great lens, even compared to 70-200F4 or F2.8. Images are sharp, auto focus is dead on and reliable. IS rocks. I managed to shoot a Chinese evening perform from back seat at ~1/30,...

IS, range 70-300

slow at 300, F4-5.6. rotating and extending front. manual focus is hard (not damped)
