Canon EF 70-300mm f4.5-5.6 DO IS USM lens test


Here are the MTF JPG summary Tommy Lee , June 24, 2004; 03:47 A.M.

As a long-term user of a Canon 75-300 IS USM lens I hoped that Canon wouldbring out an L-series version of this lens with better optical quality,especially at the 300mm end. When Canon introduced the 100-400 IS lens I boughtone to get higher quality...

This is my first Lens after the Kit lens. My budget was less than 600$.I did not have much expectations. But it turns out to be an awesome lens. I dont know how L series lens are, but this one is terrific. Ofcourse there are some cons, but, when I saw...

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...

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)

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


For the money, this is an excellent lens. But don't expect the $4000 lens quality at this budget. The IS is great and a real enhacement, I won't buy a lens without it. The USM is way better then the cheaper DC motors. 300mm focal is adequate for wildlife.

image stabilization, quiet USM, Canon quality

5.6 f stop is more used then the advertised F4, sometimes a little soft on dark days

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


I had been looking for a zoom telephoto lens for shooting wildlife. Thinking of getting a Canon EF 70-200 f/4L, but found this new lens from Canon. After doing some research, the sharpness of this lens seems to be comparable to the EF 70-200 f/4L, plus...

Lightweight, IS, and sharp

A bit loud, and built quality is average

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


I just purchased this lens for my Canon Digital Rebel XT puppy and I'm extremely pleased so far. The pictures are sharp and stunning even when hand holding down to 1/60 sec. This lens is an updated version to Canon's 75-300 IS that's been out for quite...

Lightweight, excellent build quality, great zoom range

Front focusing ring a bit of a pain to use with a circular polarizer

Consumer review by:

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


Used it for the first time-easy to use and work. Took great photos of kids sports/action. Bought it becuase of price compared to a 2.8 lense. Used in low light and it did the job

Easy to use and understand


Product Specifications

The EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM telephoto zoom lens has been developed to meet the high-performance standards that today's photographers demand. Improved Image Stabilizer Technology provides up to three stops of "shake" correction, and the "Mode 2" option stabilizes images while panning with a moving subject. Compared to the original Canon EF 75-300mm IS zoom lens, this telephoto lens has faster autofocus, and overall the lens is lighter and has a smaller diameter than the original. The zoom ring can be locked at the 70mm position, making this powerful lens easy to transport, too.
