    Good zoom, but no image stabilization.

    Came with package, but we will probably need to buy one with image stabilization.

    Got this lens bundled with a new Canon SL1 because I wanted to cover as much zoom range as possible starting out. This lens fits the bill, but without image stabilization it can get a bit fuzzy in low light. It also weighs a ton. Still, you get a great discount if you bundle, so I'm not sweating it, and now I can zoom in like crazy on stuff.

    Does what I bought it for - in hindsight, however, should have sprung for image stabilization.....

    If you want a quality lens that won't break the bank, this is a great option. You sacrifice a little by not having image stabilization, but if you're an amateur or you're using external stabilization like a tripod and wireless shutter, stabilization shouldn't be much of an issue.

    Love the lens. No image stabilization, so have to be steady.

    Very impressed on how good of a clear picture this lens is capable of taking even at higher shutter speeds for action. Only downside so far is the lack of image stabilization technology, but I knew that when I chose the less expensive version.

    Performs well for the price. My only gripe is the lack of image stabilization. That being said, the use of a tripod will be a great help when using this lens.

    Love this lens!!! Great zoom capabilities gets you real close to the subject. Not too upset that it doesn't have image stabilization because I use a tripod. I would definitely recommend this lens

    I'm new to DSLR cameras so I'm pretty thrilled with every picture when compared to a point and shoot. However, I mainly use this camera to take photos of my ultimate frisbee team so I need a good zoom lens with quick focus. I've gotten some great shots, but I can definitely see the failings of this lens--no image stabilization. For the price it is a great value. I'll be sticking with this for awhile, but if I had it to do all over again I would probably pay a little more for a little less zoom with better image stabilization.

    I purchased this lens after much research because I'd hoped it would be better than everyone was saying. It's not. Without Image Stabilization the photos turn out with a lot of noise. I have a pretty steady hand so I didn't think it would be a problem. I didn't use a tripod so the camera may be fine if you want to carry a tripod around all the time, but really, just spend an extra hundred dollars to get the 55-250mm lens with IS. You don't get as much distance but the IS is very helpful. The lens might be okay for beginners but I am glad I returned it.

    Older Lens-Good Quality but No Image Stabilization

    Posted

    I got a great deal on this lens, but ended up taking it back and trading it for the 55-250 IS zoom after one day. It isn't a bad lens. . it is just an older model and doesn't have the image stabilization feature of some of the newer Canon lenses. It took beautiful portraits. At the higher zoom levels even in late afternoon sun the flash kept trying to pop up. I could over ride the flash and hand hold the camera successfully, but the images were just a little less sharp than I wanted. . plus I felt that with the newer Canon camera, the older lens wasn't taking full advantage of the camera. I also found myself having to switch to the 18-55 lens because this zoom starts at 75. . inside the house it is too much zoom to do much of anything. Outside it was fine. . though maybe my eye is used to about the 50-80 range so I kept needing to back up to get the composition I wanted. I also got a little tired of fighting with the flash in full daylight. . I decided to take it back and upgrade to the 55-250 zoom that has Image Stabilization. I haven't tested the new lens as much as I did this one. . but I liked the 55-250 better the minute I got it onto the camera. The 55-250 isn't quite as awkward as the 70-300 and is much quicker to auto focus even in lower light. I walked outside and shot photos that were much sharper than the 70-300 without even really trying...I just had it on auto and shot. With the 70-300 I could take beautiful photos, but I was having to constantly fake out the camera to keep the flash from firing. The price difference with the camera bundle was only $50. . so it seemed worth it to pay the extra money for a much better lens. Thank you to the very understanding customer service representatives that let me trade in the package for the better lens.
