In order to minimize the amount of gear I have to carry, I was looking for a broad spectrum utility lens. This is it. Not too heavy, good, fast focus, image stabilization and high quality optics.

A nice lens for the money. One draw back is the lack of a sharp picture at the 300mm zoom level. All other zoom ranges seem fine.

Comments:

I bought my DO based on a "new" second-hand offer in June 2008. I used an EOS 400D until Thursday last week and now an EOS 7D. I love this lens because his focus is very fast which I need by travelling. It is short and good to handle and has a build quality near to "L". IS and manual focus are additional positive points.

Comments:

Buy this if can't afford the F2.8 L lenses. For digital and full frame. Works good if light is enough. IS is effective. Color and contrast is almost same as L lense. USM is average.

PROS

BEST USES

  • Sports/Action

Comments:

Considered getting for over a year to go with my 40D since my very old 70-210 was heavy and slow and I needed something for sporting events. So far works fine, as expected not perfect with rapit shots on all the way zoomed out sometimes, but didn't think it could be perfect on the auto focus when shooting that fast a frame shot on a moving object. I still need to play around with some more, but like the IS on it which my old zoom did not have, a big positive difference just in that.

I live in rural area where wildlife is plentiful.I use this to capture the animals in the wild. This lens is easy to mount, easy to use and takes outstanding photos. It is slightly heavier than i would like,but on a tripod it is of minor consequence.

Comments:

I use this on my Rebel XSI. This lens is a great telephoto lens for the price. Sure it isn't as crystal clear as an L series at 300mm, but then again, you don't have to get a second mortgage to buy this one either.

Great lens as long as you have ample lighting (probably not great for indoor sports). Perfect for outdoor, daytime shots. Sharp focus. IS works as specified.
