Pretty good lense overall
from Colorado, United States
Comments about Canon EF 75-300mm F/4-5.6 III Autofocus Telephoto Zoom Lens:
This lense was given to me by a good friend. My hands shake a lot due to Essential Tremors. This lense does not have IS which makes it harder to use without a tripod. Other than that I'm glad to have this lense!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've used this lens heavily over the last year and I'd say its a decent beginner's zoom lens. The lens is pretty lightweight, easy to use, and has a good focal range, but using the longer lengths can be tricky since there isn't image stabilization. You get some slight optical imperfections at 300mm as well and the image quality can be a bit soft at times. If you want a zoom lens for occasional use, this is fine, but people who rely on this focal range, especially professionals, may want to look into the IS version or Canon's 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II lens. if your hobbyist, though, this lens is convenient to have.

I've owned this lens for almost 3 years and it has never taken a picture in focus whether in auto or manual focus. Around every subject regardless of lighting, the edges are just too soft and the subject just doesn't have focus. The closer you are to 70mm the better it gets, but it's still pronounced. I looked up information on several forums about this lens and it appears to be normal for it, so I never sent the lens back to Canon for repair. I've used this lens for shooting weddings, airshows, extreme sports competitions, hiking and wildlife. I give it a shot every time I shoot something and every time I'm disappointed as soon see the images on the computer. They look fantastic on a tiny screen and if you fill the frame with the subject, but there can be no cropping on images with this lens, it will make the softness very pronounced.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I got this lense the same time I got my camera. And I have to say, I'm pretty impressed. I wouldn't recommend this to a professional. But for a beginner or a intermediate photographer it's a perfect fit. It's a great lens and I would recommend this to anyone who would like a medium duty lens.

Rebel EOS A Great All Purpose Camera
from Southern California
The Canon Rebel EOS is everything I want in a camera. It offers options to satisfy the beginning, casual photographer such as myself to the tech savvy photographer who wants an SLR camera that he/she can use for a variety of photo opportunities. For the novice, it is easy to use for excellent quality photos. The Canon EOS is a great buy. The lens is also everything one could want in a telephoto lens.

yes, I endorse quality!
from Tucson, AZ
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.
two thumbs up
from Greenville, Michigan
Easy to use and takes great distant photos. Go addition to my buisness.

A Solid Startup Telephoto
By Boin Loin
I purchased this lens at the same time I bought my first Canon DSLR, the 60D. It has served me well as a starting point for telephoto shots. The build and auto-focus are the most noticeably quality elements of this lens; the lens has a good weight to it and is metal rather than plastic which has caused it to hold up well. In addition, the auto-focus is completely silent and speedy - very helpful when photographing sports. However, if you're using this lens in anything less than broad daylight, you will be disappointed: despite the impressive focal range (especially on a half-frame DSLR), the 5.6 aperture that comes with the full 300mm focal length is a deal-breaker, namely for nighttime sports events. Other than that, I would recommend this lens to a friend because of the sheer solid build and noticeably sharp image quality.
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.
