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.

yes, I endorse quality!

By Buck

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

Back in the 1960s, I was impressed to see Canon lenses on TV cameras in a TV studio I was doing an appearance in; a subsequent trip to Tokyo's Ginza led to some serious camera shopping- a Canon 35mm SLR and lenses (50mm+ 200mmtelephoto) which served beautifully for the balance of my 'round-the-work-journey following a year of travels through India.Years later, I upgraded the body to an A1 and ultimately transitioned into a 5D/ii, which evolved into an SL-1 with impressive zoom lenses. the comfort, ease of use,reliability and impressive images have always been present in all Canon photo products, and have consistently justified my continued investment in these quality products.

good lens

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

I have been using this lens since I bought my camera over 2 years ago. Light weight, easy to use and takes the abuse that I give it. As of today it is still in the same working order as when I took it out of the box.

For the $ best lense I've bought

By Old Timer

from WaSHINGTON

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

I bought this lens in about 2007. Taken probably 12000 pictures with it. 50% of them at Walt Disney World. From reading other reviews I had none of those problems. Not much of a nigh shoot person, daytime pictures very few out of focus. Some times even use a 2x multiplier. Last trip to Disney bought and used EFS55-250mm. I had all the problems with that len that people described with this lens. I put the 75-300 back on my Rebel XT and will leave it there. The rebel XT is old and a little slow, might up-date it someday.
