    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.

    I got this lens as a package w/ the XSi. the zoom ring is sticky/jerky which makes it hard to zoom in in small increments. The barrel is loose so when zoomed in it amplifies camera shake. I get sharper crisper pictures from the 18-55mm IS lens that came with the XSi. I would recommend saving and getting a better lens it will be worth it in the end.

    Good budget lens

    By yam8310

    from Undisclosed

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

    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 USM Telephoto Zoom Lens In Black:

      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

          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 USM Telephoto Zoom Lens In Black:

            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.

            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 USM Telephoto Zoom Lens In Black:

              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.

              After using this lense for a week i returned it to my local camera store. The price was great the quality of the lense was good but i wasn't blown away with the image quality. I realize this is not a professional series lense but i expected a little bit better. When i opened the pictures up on my 27 inch computer screen they were grainy and a little fuzzy. I tried numerours scenarios, outdoor, indoor low light daylight high and low iso and none of them were superb. I have decided to start saving for the professioanl series telephoto because none of the lenses in this class met my needs.

                I like taking pictures of insects. I once used a point a shoot camera which was ok, but didn't allow me to get close up shots without scaring them away. I just got my first DSLR camera last month and had the same problem with the stock lens. This product was within my budget and the optical zoom was perfect for me to use. Only downfall I had was that the image quality declined once I pass the 250mm-275mm mark, but its better than no picture at all and the clarity problem can easily be fixed or corrected on my computer. I have no problem keeping stability on my shots, the weight of the lens helps. Currently saving for a macro lens.
