    It's a Canon "L" Series So Expect the Best!

    Some reviews don't favor this lens but for the cost, you can't beat it. Sure, it's not the high dollar f/2.8 version but it does everything I want from a super telephoto lens in this focal range. It produces tack-sharp images if you know how to properly use it. Remember, with a super telephoto lens, rock solid support is a must. You can handhold it but I recommend a min. shutter speed of 1/1000 sec. (yeah, 1/500 might be okay in theory but I don't like to chance it). Remember too that depth of field will be compressed so don't expect a lot of focus depth for subjects (which is something I really like about using a telephoto lens). Overall, an excellent lens hence the "L" designation by Canon.

    It's hard to beat a prime lens.

    I purchased this lens to take nature images, primarily birds. The lens is SHARP! Auto-focus is fast. Bokeh is very good. It comes with a nice little case. FYI-I use a Canon 70d body for this lens. The price is right. I would love to have image stabilizing, but then the price will go up. I use a tripod with a ball head, and am able to do what I need to do. I'd buy it again if something happened to this one.

    Blown Away by this Lens - No Tripod

    I read a bunch of reviews and watched a few YouTube videos...this lens is spectacular. I have yet to use a tripod with it and have a boat-load of super close-up pics. It's pretty heavy but who cares when you can capture a random snap like this? This pic was taken through a closed doorwall, check it out!

    Lens focuses very fast and accurate, great for birds in flight and other wildlife, light enough to carry all day and use hand held. However this lens is slow so it needs a lot of light. Wish canon would make the same lens with IS at a price mortals can afford.

    I use this lens for sports photography I shoot HS football games and baseball And it has not disappointed me. I use it handheld and sometimes on my monopod. This lens is fast and combined with both of my cameras canon t5i and my canon 1d Mark iii is amazing. It is my favorite lens.

    Easy to use. I have a 300mm lens and wanted one to shoot farther. I will admit that the pictures are better than the 300mm lens, but not as dramatically better than I expected.

    This lens was actually faster than I expected after having read extensive reviews, I paired it with my 7d mk ii and am suitably impressed with the quality!

    It is extremely expensive but if you like a prime lense it dose a great job. I returned it because that was not what I was looking for. It did a great job though.
