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.

Pretty good lense overall

By 

from Colorado, United States

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

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!

Tolerable Lens

By 

from Provo, UT, United States

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

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.

Look Elsewhere

By 

from Portland, OR, United States

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

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.

Pretty impressed

By 

from Springfield, OR

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

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

By 

from Southern California

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

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!

By 

from Tucson, AZ

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

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.

A Solid Startup Telephoto

By 

from Ohio

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

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.

good lens

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

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.
