For starters this is not a lens for professionals and I'm not one anyway so..., knowing that this is a great lens. It has the features you'll need to take it into the field and get some really good photos under your belt while getting use to the handling and functions of a telephoto lens. After you master this one and chose to use your camera rather then park it in the closet you may end up buying the next level up but for starting out or even for a an everyday knock around lens this one is perfect and can handle some abuse with no trouble. For the cost you really can't beat it. Overall the images will be some you can take a level of pride in. I have taken some longer shots (around 50 to 70 yards) of birds which came out pretty darn good. After printing them I was fairly satified with it and I'm happy enough with it to say "I would" buy it again for the price. After all the cost is nothing compared to other high end lens's and it's a little toughy that will not make you worry to take it in the woods or the city and get a few bumps, it can handle it. If you buy one for non-professional work you'll have some really neat photos that people will admire including you.

I have had this lens for years. It was actually given to me by a friend. I do not use it very often but when I do use it I'm always surprised for the bum rap this lens gets. For the money it takes fine images and coupled with some photoshopping it can deliver fine, fine images. I typically use this lens in music festival situations when I'm a hundred or so yards from the stages. With a steady hand the shots can be surprisingly good. I still hold this lens to be great for beginners. And, yeah, the auto-focus could be faster but this is not a USM lens.

Comments about Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Telephoto Zoom Lens:

We've been looking at this lens for along time but when we noticed it was marked down we couldn't help to jump on it.. It was the best lens we ever purchased. It's light weight and the pictures come out at clears as could be.

Comments about Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Telephoto Zoom Lens:

Awesome lens! This lens is the best lens for the price, and also free shipping. Staples is the best they shipped this item the very next day and got to me in 2 days. If you're into photography then I highly recommend this zoom lens to zoom in very close from very far and still get great quality pictures. I use this lens with the canon rebel T3i and that camera maybe an older model but the picture quality is better than any of the higher end expensive cameras. You get one lens for free with camera so all you need is this zoom lens then.

      This is a great lens for occasional use on a crop sensor EOS camera. It is easy to use, not bulky, and has good build quality for the price.

      Comments about Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Telephoto Zoom Lens:

      I have always wanted a telescopic lens and this one is great. The only problem I have is that it is so heavy that without a tripod you can't take a nice, clear picture. The heavy lens leads to movement as you hold the camera.

      The nice thing about this lens is that it really can pick out small things from a long distance. I took this lens on my trip to Mt. Washington in New Hampshire, we were able to zoom in on the road down below and the little stores, etc. to show how high up we were. You can focus on areas from a great distance away and get some great shots such as we did with Indian Head Monument.
