    The lens allows me to take distant pictures with clarity. I use this lens at grandson's football games. I got some great action shots.

    We bought this lens to take on an Alaskan cruise. It did exactly what we were hoping for - let us take beautiful pictures from our balcony. I would highly recommend this lens for long shots!

    When I bought this lens to use in the Canada F1 GP, I thought that I could regret later because of the price I was paying for this lens. But for me, that am not a professional, it came out a very good surprise how well it performed. I am glad that I risk buying this item.

    I got a great deal on the bundle of this lens and the Rebel XS. The Telephoto lens performs very well, with the large exception that there is no image stabilization. If you think you'll be able to bring a tripod or take your time and take a non-shaky photo, this could be for you. If you need it for action shots, spend the extra couple hundred for image stabilization.

    Great for outdoor use. I would suggest that you use an UV filter when using it outdoors. It is easy to focus but when you press the shutter, there is a tendency that the camera will shake. Overall, it is a decent starter zoom lens. I highly recommend this

    I liked the fact it was part of a package with the Rebel T2i when we purchased it. . Mounting and detaching the Lens is very easy--just follow the instructions-connect the red dots. Setting the Focus Mode from AF to MF is easy--set the mode switch to MF and turn the focus ring.

    Works with Canon 60D

    |
    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Picture quality, Price

    I purchased this lens because it was selling for a good price and is one of the few lenses that works with the full frame Canon 60D. This lens will not work with the Canon T5 or other cameras that uses EFS lens. Some EF lenses will work with the T5 and other cropped sensor cameras. These will have either a red dot or a white square on the lens mount however the EF lenses only have a red dot. If a lens have both of these icons they will work with crop sensor cameras but not full frame cameras like the Canon 60D. This is the first Full Frame 35mm digital camera that I have owned so I would appreciate it if someone comments and can make my explanation clearer. Essentially EF lenses can be used on both full frame cameras and cameras with cropped sensors but EFS lenses for cropped sensor cameras cannot be used on full framed cameras. EF lenses are very expensive so when I saw this one priced at about the same price as a EFS lens I took it. I now have two lenses for my new Canon 60D. The T5 is more of a beginner camera while the 60D is more of a professional camera. The fun begins now that I am learning to use it. Being a full frame camera with more megapixels should have increase the quality of my images once I learn how to get around the cameras interface. The Canon 60D does not have a built in flash nor a flipout screen but I don't see this as a disadvantage. Its a big camera but not that heavy. I would recommend the camera for anyone who is serious about their photography. It cost nearly three times as much as a Canon T5 and the lenses cost a lot more so its not made for snapshot shooting. I don't see this as a disadvantage rather as the old saying goes, "you get what you pay for." This concludes my review of the Canon 60D.

    I just got into photography last year around christmas, I got the Canon XS with 18-55mm IS and the 75-300mm. I have since then used a wide range of lens so I hope this review can be helpful. The first thing I noticed about the 75-300mm is that it was quite heavy and very long. It made my Canon XS very VERY front heavy. I have gone to a few events(airshows, sporting events) and this was the main lens I used, I found that the image quality was decent, but when I zoomed into the picture on my computer, the edges of the subject were colored blue, purple, green, or yellow 80% of the time. So I would say the image quality is average if not a tad below. But what else can you expect for $200? For the price, you can't beat this lens. I would definately recomend this lens if you need a decent telephoto lens, I would also recomend a tripod since it can be a bit tricky to get a clear shot since the lens lacks IS. Overall, I love this lens! You wont regret buying I promise. Thanks for reading!

    Purchased this lens to use on a vacation to the beach. The lens turned out to be fast and easy to use. I took great photos of wildlife, beach and boats from up close to extended range. Speed is important when taking wildlife and breaking wave photos. I am very please I added this lens to my camera bag.

    Great First Lens

    Pros mentioned:
    Long distance shots, Picture quality

    This lens came in a bundle pack when I bought my Cannon T3i. Since then, I can't imagine not having it! It's a great lens for capturing people/animals from a far distance. I use it more than the normal lens that my camera came with, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to buy an additional lens for their camera. I've used it to capture some awesome photos of animals in nature, people, and far away landscapes. Also, this lens brings out "blues" and "greens" very nicely, so it's great for photos of lakes, oceans, etc. The green especially, is very vivid when taking pictures of plants. Additionally, the detail is amazing and the lens is very easy to focus and use. The only down side is that the lens sometimes shakes when your holding your camera, so you have to keep a steady hand. But other than that, it's a quick and durable lens. I bring it everywhere!

    Price

    I hesitated buying this lens...because of some of the reviews...after about five months of usage I am glad I purchased this lens... I have used this lens in various light situations...I have caught hummingbirds in perfect focus with patience in dusk light...the trick is making the camera work with the lens...the best thing about digital is you can take pictures to your memory cards heart desire...hahahahaha...so you can take multiple shots and eventually get something to be proud of...if you are a professional and need the perfect shot...you should have enough money to buy the better lenses...I've been shooting for 45 years...and have seen the many changes in cameras...I find some of the best photos are taken by amateurs and non-professionals who take the time to learn how to use their cameras and understand the settings...auto usually works as well...so if you need an economical lens and you're not going to have a critic judge your photos...take pictures and keep your money in your pocket until the day you can afford something better...realistically...a hundred dollars more will get you image stabilization and less distance in zoom...so you can take it from there...both have the same speed as far as fstop...so no improvement there and that's where it counts most... I would recommend this to a friend in most cases...if they are a funny duddy perfectionist...they need to save another 100 dollars...but this lens will work if you make it work... It will give you some noise at long distance zoom...but most do anyway...it is slow in low light...that means you can't really open up the f-stop enough to make it fast enough...with a digital camera...you can overcome this...with ISO settings and tripod...I get good shots without tripod...most photography is done in a midday light...so it's fast enough for that... Hope this helps... Blue

    inexpensive zoom

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Picture quality, Price

    This is a good zoom for beggining.Good image quality in outdoors.Best if used with a tripod or monopod.There is no image stablizer so the futher you zoom the steadier the camera has to be.On the plus side with it being an EF lens you can buy an inexpensive teleconverter and double your zoom.All in all a good lens for being part of a package. I probably would have purchased seperatly if it wasn't offered.

    Love this lense. Can take shots of the moon in the right Manual settings and action shots of the kids riding horses. Really great in natural light. You get a really nice range as well. Great bang for the buck.

    Save Your Money

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Picture quality, Price

    If you are looking for an upgrade from the kit lens that came with you rebel save your money for EF 28-135mm f3.5-5.6 IS USM. The 28-135mm auto focus is usually less than 1 second and the lens has a really nice Image Stabilizer. Also, the 28-135 has a macro mode that can fill a flower petal in the view finder and is very sharp. Most will find that for family photos 70mm is not short enough and 300mm is way too long so you will be changing the lens out quite often, not to mention if you use the 300mm you will probably out of range for your built in flash so you will need a lot of light on the subject. Your camera is only as good as the lens you put in front of it, save your money you will not regret it. Don't believe me try the two for yourself before you buy.

    Good Lens in heavy sun light

    Picture quality

    You can get a few great shots out of a hundred. if you don't mind scrolling through tons of photos for that great pic then buy. This lens need lots of light ..lots of light. Some things can be fixed with digital processing, but that takes time. If you dont have the money for a better lens try it.. and be patient. I am no professional. The sample photos were taken with the this lens on an original 6 mega pixel Rebel, i now have a T2i but image size are too large to upload in this review. the pics look much better on the t2i.

    Good lens for freelance photography

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Picture quality

    This lens is great for when you need a nice zoom, but it definitely isn't the best deal out there if you're wanting to pursue a career in photography. As some other people have said, this lens makes very soft pictures, so they aren't meant to be printed in big sizes. A lot of the time (at least mine) it doesn't want to focus, so I end up manually focusing a lot, which makes the pictures look even softer. And with a low aperature, instead of having a blurring effect, it creates a more lined background (example in the picture of the girl sledding). I've dropped it a couple of times and it still works perfectly, so that's definitely a plus!
