Customer Reviews:

  • Amazing Lens at an Amazing Price!
    This is a great field lens! Very light, yet good construction, and incredible range. I can shoot at 300mm and not have to use a tripod and my photos come out awesome. I have a Rebel XT, XTi, and XSi and works great on all of them. This has to be the best Canon lens for the money. Get won't be disappointed....more info

  • great value, but you will desire more shortly
    well, everyone needs one.. and for many (including myself) this is the first step in the telephoto road. yes, the value is there, and for the casual photographer that "just needs a telephoto", this will work out.

    what you will soon discover is that with a aperture of 5.6. you will get some blurred shots as the sun goes down (or indoors). you will also find that the clarity and resolution at full zoom just isn't there upon close inspection. my brother and myself took the same photo several times. I was using a 300mm prime, and he was using this lens.. the difference was amazing. even I didn't think it could make that big of a difference going into a prime lens. the image was easily 3 times the clarity and resolution on cropped images.

    now, don't fret, for the average point and shoot crowd, this will be a very nice step into the telephoto world, but if you are like many, you will be saving your change for the next lens after about 6 months....more info
  • Naysayers are overly picky
    EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 -not to be confused with the EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 USM
    At either new or used prices, this lens is a good consideration for the person who has the EF-S 18-55 mm kit lens for their APS sensor digital camera and wants a similarly inexpensive telephoto. Reviews have typically commented on "softness" of the lens at its maximum focal length, but in practice the lens is more than adequate, especially if stopped down, according to many reviewers (search "Canon +EF +(70,75)" for examples). It is not an L lens, but it costs a tiny fraction of the price. Note that this lens does not have any image stabilization. An almost identical lens with the simpler USM autofocus, was the first commercial IS lens, it is great, but costs at much as 4X the price. This lens can be used on both full-size 35mm image cameras as well as on smaller sensor cameras like the Rebel or 20/30D (equivalent there to a 120(+/-) -480mm lens). The Micro USM lens has a Ultrasonic logo on the upper portion of the lens while this lens does not.

  • Its autofocus is very bad in indore operations or Night operations
    Though its not a bad deal for 99 + 6$ yet this is not for professionals....more info
  • Canon EF 75-300mm
    An older zoom telephoto but still does a good job. Does not have the USM quiet motor, and of course, no stabilization but still a good buy if you use a tripod for your long shots....more info
  • Great lens for a good value - use a tri- or mono-pod though
    The Canon EF75-300 is a good lens for the price. Canon quality is really good, and pictures taken turn out great if you have used a tripod or monopod to hold the camera steady. I will say if you don't frequently have something to steady the camera on, it will be hard to keep distance shots crisply in focus. The extra cost of the IS lenses (image stabilization) is a lot to bear, but may mean the difference between a great shot and a missed opportunity....more info
  • great lens for the money
    I'm just a hobbyist. I like to take pictures for fun. Maybe a more serious photographer would have problems with image quality; maybe not! I don't know! All I know is that this lens works great and gives me photos that I love. I recommend it wholeheartedly....more info
  • Canon lens
    Great price on a great item. Fast shipping and entirely pleased with the whole experience!...more info
  • tacocat
    good quality lens at a resonable cost. great for use with a tripod. if not using a tripod you should invest the extra money and the lens with the image stabilazation. ...more info
  • Worst lens I ever purchased
    The price should have clued me in, but this was--without a doubt--the worst lens I ever purchased. I used it twice, and sold it off to purchase the 70-300 IS in its stead. The price of this lens should tell you something: don't buy it!...more info
  • Entry level telephoto lens
    not as sharp and definitely not fast for action auto-focus shots.
    for hobby only use on weekend, this would be okay, I've shot a lot of birds on this lens and they come out just okay, JUST okay. :)

    The construction is just average, barrel play on manual focus might be an issue for some.

    If you'll try to shot stunning vivid and fast shots, you might be better off spending a little more and pick the more PRO lenses.

    This lens is good for sunny days and for the newbie who just want to have a decent focal lenght lens. 300mm is really not bad.

    I've bought a Canon 70-200mm L IS USM 2.8f lens, big difference, both in sharpness, color and speed and also, really big difference in price too.

    But, eventually, that's what hobbies are all about, start small and grow, if you have the money, just skip this one and buy the real deal, memories are priceless, capture it the best way you can....more info
  • Zoom Lens
    This was a Christmas present for my husband and he seems to love it so far. It is a nice extra to have with his other lens. I would order from this company again....more info
  • Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras
    This lens have really delivered the versatility it promised. I have taken pictures of my friend, who is my neighbor, from about 100 yards away and the quality of the picture was as if I was within 10 feet of him. Its a nice lens and I would recommend it to anyone who doubts the amount of satisfaction they will receive from their investment.

  • A zoom lens that doesn't weight a lot
    For a zoom lens 75-300mm I expected a much heavier pruduct. This lens is light weigt, reducing camera waggle to a bare minimum. I'm saving up to get a 500 mm. ...more info
  • does the job
    i see some reviews bashing it. I bot this when I got the Digital rebel a few years ago. It works really well, even for sports action. I know it does not have image stabilization, but I was still able to take some great shots. You will get some out of focus shots with heavy movement, but that is why I have a big memory card.
    If you are not shooting sports, then it is a no brainer. Works well with the Rebel line and takes great shots. Never had a problem with it....more info
  • Great for What it's Suppose to Do
    This is a "cheap" telephoto lens for a "cheap" camera but both are excellent if you remember not to expect too much - it works great for what I need it for but have to remember I'm not going to get wonderful shots with movement, especially sports and other action shots - for the price of the camera and the lens I'm very satisfied - in fact, very, VERY satisfied - if I want something professional I'll have to spend a lot more money - would recommend the Canon Rebel EOS and this zoom lens to anyone, novice or pro - just don't expect to have Sports Illustrated quality photos . . . and remember to hold it as steady as you can!...more info
  • Canon EF 75-300mm lens
    Fantastic lens. I love it. Brand new and in excellent condition on arrival. Would definitely buy from this seller again. Very pleased. Thank you....more info
  • telephoto lens
    Shipment of lens was very fast. Lens was in excellant condition but did not fit my SLR Canon camera. This lens was for a digital EOS camera. Had to return product and waiting for credit....more info
  • Great wildlife lens!
    I have had this lens for over 7 years. I have used it with the Canon Rebel G, and will be shortly switching to the Xsi. This lens has a great zoom, and in good, outdoor lighting takes amazing, crystal clear, colorful shots. I shoot mainly wildlife. The detail impresses me everytime I get a shot back. This lens has made me love photography, and constantly strive to be better. I do not use this lens in indoor or low light situations. While I have never used a much higher end lens, I am very happy with this one....more info
  • Long shots need a tripod.
    I was a little spoiled by the "steady-shot" feature on my Rebel lens. Without a tripod the long shots with this lens are a bit blurry. Not bad with the tripod....more info
