Canon 75-300mm Lens NO IS


I was very disappointed in this particular lens. While the close up pictures were in focus and color was good at least some of the time, I could not get the lens to focus properly at 300mm even after trying several different focus types. I also think...

Canon EF 75-300 F4-5.6 III


All the Canon Quality at a very affordable price! Only used this lens a few times so far, but I love it already. Fast auto focus great for the wildlife - outdoors I shoot most often. Id rate it a Best Buy

Love the lens. Auto and manual focus which I love. Crisp details. Gets very close up to my subject.

This is a great zoom lens. I used it recently to photograph a hawk in my neighborhood and was told the pictures were good enough to be in a wildlife magazine. The zoom and focusing ability are great. Love it!!!!

Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III review by cmm895


I purchased this lens a number of years ago to use on a film SLR camera and also used it for a short time on my 450D DSLR. If sufficient light is available and your subject is staying relative still you can get some sharp shots through using manual...

price, not much else

need to use manual focus to get sharp images, no IS, needing to use f11 to get sharp images

Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III review by Wojtek


Actually, I've tested Canon Zoom Lens EF 75-300 mm f/4-5.6 II USM, that has exactly the same optics as this one, but the USM lens is not listed here at all. It's a perfect companion to Canon EF 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 USM (price and quality - wise). At f/11...

Small, light, inexpensive and sharp at low focal lengths

Low contrast at wide open apertures

Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III review by Badmono


I'm not a Zoom lens fan But appreciate that a good zoom is worth having in the bag - However having had to sell both the 70-200 F2.8 IS L and the 100-400 IS L because of their poor IQ.

Cheap - The only Canon Zoom I'd use, good focal range

At the price - None whatsoever

Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III review by tempest68


For someone starting out in photography on a budget, this is not a bad lens. But it is not exceptional either.

good zoom range, inexspensive

very susceptible to camera shake

Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III review by twmagoo


This lens is okay for the price. I don't see how most people try to compare low end lens to the L series and them give them a bad review because of that. This lens does okay at 75mm between F/9 to F/11 and at 200mm at F/ 10 to F/11. Around 300mm, its a...

zoom, cost,light

soft at the long end
