Pros Black, compact, lightweight, fast focusing, full time manual focus, affordable
Cons No hood included, small aperture, softer past 200mm.
Recommended it? Yes

I bought this as a companion to my 28-105mm USM 3.5-4.5 to go from 28mm to 300mm with two lenses on my Elan II 35mm camera. I didn't really see the drawbacks to this lens until I started to shoot with my 20D and could see that the camera sensor was capable of more than the lens could give me. I... Read full review »

This Old ?Workhorse? Still Blows Away The EF 75-300mm f/4.5-5.6 Lenses

Pros Very Compact & Well-Built With Real "Ring" USM, Rear Focus, FTM And Good Optics
Cons In A Perfect World, It Would Be A Stop Faster
Recommended it? Yes

This is the last surviving member of the original trio of "Ring" type USM lenses, introduced to the market in the fall of 1990.

Pros Not very expensive for a 300mm zoom lens.
Cons Quality of lens is disappointing for professional use.
Recommended it? No

I was on a tight budget looking for a telephoto lens for wildlife images. This lens was priced pretty low but the quality was also low. Sold it and bought a Tamron 90mm macro lens and couldn't believe how much sharper my images came out on the same Velvia slide film. Of course I am still saving for... Read full review »

Pros Great for concerts!!!
Cons often too strong of a zoom, for widely spread scenes closer than 100 feet.
Recommended it? Yes

I received this lens as a graduation present in 2001. I was absolutely ecstatic when I was able to put it to use for the first time. I took it to Wango Tango (a concert), and was able to get extremely wonderful close-ups of every performer. Every photo I took was done automatically, and came out... Read full review »
