    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.

    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.

        This is a great lens for occasional use on a crop sensor EOS camera. It is easy to use, not bulky, and has good build quality for the price.

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

          By reading the other reviews I believe I got an exceptionally good one. No problems with auto focus (unless I try to get to close to the subject) and I do not miss the IS at all even at full zoom hand held all my pictures come out just beautiful ! The only issue I have found is in high contrast you do get a lot of CA even with a CPL filter, but this is my only complaint. For the price you pay you get a really great lens.

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

            This lens is great for the price. I read a lot of reviews of people complaining that there is no IS on it. First of all you don't use an IS with a tripod. Secondly, using AF really doesn't give you the sharpest photos. That is what manual focal ring is for. Over all the lens MTP chart has a high rating at 75-200mm. If you want to have a good telephoto lens for a great price then this is a good buy. If you can't afford a more expensive lens and worry about possible camera shake, because there is no IS on this lens, remember you can always use mirror lock up on your camera or live view.

            Cons

            • Chromatic aberration

            • No image stabilizer
            • Poor build quality

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

              Great lens for beginners because of its low price. It's also fairly light for its focal length. It can produce a few nice photos provided you know what you're doing. But that's about where the pros end. If you're looking for super-sharp professional quality images, you're going to have to look somewhere else. The focus is soft to begin with, but once you go over 200mm it gets dramatically worse. The Auto Focus has a lot of trouble with low-light situations, and is fairly picky while in AI Servo. Not to mention slow. I've had a couple instances where it took nearly 10 (ten) seconds to focus. There's also an issue with Chromatic Aberration. Everyone loves pincushioning and purple fraying around their subject, right? Anyway, aside from the soft focus, slow AF, and CA problems, the lack of the Image Stabilizer is truly the major downfall to this lens. I recommend using a tripod above 135mm, and I don't even attempt hand-shooting over 200mm after dozens of failed shots. For a superior quality lens with a similar focal length that doesn't break your bank, I recommend picking up the 55-250mm IS II instead.

              Infinity focus is blurry

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

              Purchased December 2012 with bundled T3i. Nice lens with wide zoom range. Manual focus at the infinity setting is blurry, you have to back it off just a tad. Internal focusing mechanism just not up to old standards. You can not just set it to infinity and shoot. Many posts on web about the out of focus at infinity issue. It is a problem I did not expect to have. Not critical but really annoying.

                Got this with my T3 kit in a bundle for Black Friday. First foray stepping away from point and shoot. Read a lot of reviews and complaints. First off, it's not an L lens so people need to stop comparing. If you realize what you have, then you are good to go. As far as the 200mm to 300mm zoom goes, it's imperative to use a tripod or you will get nothing but blur. I tried this and was disappointed until I used a tripod/monopod. The zoom, with manual focus, can get you that good to sometimes great shot all the time. Until you are ready to step your game up, this is a very good lens to learn the basics. Just remember what you have and your expectations will be reached.

                  Not much to say... it's average lens all-around. Not a bad lens, but not really good. It has great range, but you will need a tripod, for sure. Images are nice, but not perfect. Great lens for beginners because of price. No USM, and no IS make it pretty plain. I bought a 55-250mm IS lens to replace this one. If I know I'm going somewhere where I'll need the extra zoom, and I plan on bringing a tripod, I will bring this one out of the closet for a bit. If you're looking to buy a telephoto zoom, save up for a couple more months and get the 55-250mm IS lens. For what it's worth, you absolutely can't argue with the value.

                    Got this extra with my rebel t3 kit, my first foray away from the point and shoot. So far so good. While I'm not a professional, I take the occasional shots whenever something catches my eye. As I've been playing with the lenses, I've noticed that if you follow the parameters of the lens, it will give you good to great results. Tried to take a picture of the big and little dipper, guess it wasn't enough light as the camera just wouldn't focus. On some subjects, it just keeps focusing, found out a couple of steps taken backward can alleviate that issue. Overall, so far, its a good lens and can give you great shots. Being that it doesn't have IS, if you zoom to the max, you'll get nothing but blur so invest in a tripod. Anything closer and the focus is great.

                        Out of the box, my focus ring sticks before getting to infinity when on autofocus. It canl not take a distant object in focus while set over 200mm on any setting. In over 100 attempts ZERO pictures are in focus. Even on landscape mode or manual with focus set on infinity and the Fstop raised to f16 are still blurry at 200mm - 300mm. This lens is simply no good.
