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

    This lens is great for beginners. Simple and easy to use while still being a lens that does what you need be it day fast shutter speed close ups or night slow shutter speed crisp shots

    Good budget lens

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

    So far I have used the lens in a less than great conditions. It is tough to use AF in low light conditions but manual works fine for that. I intend to use it in low light mounted on a stable platform for long exposure imaging. Haven't had the chance yet. Without a distance scale on these budget lenses, an infinity mark or detente would be a real plus. But that would be my only wish. The lens works great.

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

    What I think is the perfect medium length telephoto lense. Just short enough for every day use, and just long enough to really reach out for the longer than the standard lense.

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

      I use the Canon 75-300 f/4-5.6 II USM lens for capturing live action shots of wildlife and sports. This lens works flawlessly when using it in conjunction with the Canon 7D. And, most of these shots are free hand. There is no time to carry and set up tripods when you are int he wilderness and on the run. Thanks Prowler Bill

      This lens has honestly performed very well. I was looking into purchasing the IS lens but didnt have the money. The III has taken exceptional photographs that i have been overly pleased with! I defenitly recommend this lens

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

        This is a great lens. It's obviously not an amazing $2000+ lens, but it gets the job done. I've been shooting for a year now, and these lens do give me great results. I get close ups of animals, portrait shots, and close ups of birds from a distance, and the photos come out great. Everyone who's complaining here about the lens are obviously those who want the best photos in the world and think that cheap lens are suppose to do that. Nah man, they're cheap,obviously not the best, but they really do give great results and I would recommend to anyone who's looking for a cheap, telephoto lens.

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

          I have used this produce for a month and a half and have concluded it is my favorite lens. It can take good portrait/scenery shots as well as distance shots. I love taking pictures of birds, and I can use its telephoto capability to get nice up close shots. Its price does not reflect its quality, as it is surprisingly cheap for a great quality. This lens is a great beginner telephoto lens, and I look to expand on telephoto capabilities.

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

            I am quite new to the DSLR photography. However it did not take me long to see that the stock lens that came with the camera did not do what I needed. I had a budget and this lens fell right into what I needed and also into the price range. I debated on this one with the USM or the one without. I am very happy to say that I did not go wrong in selecting this one. I am already loving the auto focus more than I can say. And the zoom difference from the lens that came with the camera and this one, well lets just say if any other newbies to the DSLR camera catagory are thinking about a new lens, you won't go wrong with this one. It does feel a little heavy out of the box, but once mounted on your camera, you really don't even notice.

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

            i wanted a lens to zoom in to take some pics of my kids at the park and also get a cool blurred background and this lens does that perfectly i didn't have a big budget so i didn't go with the IS (image stabilizer) but i got a tripod and a RC-6 remote so the 75-300 mm III USM is amazing for family use and for a price under $200 its the best

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

              After I bought this lens I was impressed with the clarity and clarity, but I wish I would have held out for the IS USM version. I tried to take a few shots of my little girls playing at the park and as long as I used a high shutter speed, I was ok. I am use to running at 1/80th, yet this lens seems to need at least 1/200 to help with any blurred images while on the go. I love the DOF this lens provides. I was able to really bring some new life to some of my landscape shots. Right now I have this mounted on my T1i body and for a begininger I'm pretty happy in exchange for the money I've spent. I think if your looking for a solid lens without hurting the pocket, you'll be satisfied.
