    Save Your Money

    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.

    Look Elsewhere

    Some contend this is a great lens for beginners, but I tend to disagree. The aperture is extremely slow in almost any lighting which makes taking crisp photos extremely difficult without a solid tripod in use at all times. This lens simply doesn't collect enough light and simply will not allow for fast shutter speeds in all but the brightest of situations. The cheap construction is arguably less important if one takes care of his or her possessions well enough. Beginners need something that doesn't require extreme care with how the photos are taken, and with the lens one must pay attention or every photo will come out underexposed, blurred from handshake, and distorted due to the large number of elements that make up the lens. Research barrel distortion if you are interested in what the distorted images would look like.

    An OK lens, nothing spectacular

    I use this lens on my Canon T1i and have never been able to get a sharp picture from it out without any post processing of the RAW file. It's not a bad lens for the beginner by any means but it's nothing really worth raving about. If you plan on making large prints (anything past 8x10) this is not the lens for you. It's very soft when you start getting into larger size images. I really can't stress the softness enough. Great for a beginner looking to experiment, bad for anyone who wants to take serious quality photos.

    Decent lens but you get what you pay for.

    I will say this is a decent budget lens for 70-300 zoom. HOWEVER if you're expecting great photos you'll more then likely be disappointed. This lens does what it says it will do. Provide you 70-300mm zoom but if you don't have great lighting you'll be really disappointed in your image quality. Plus you'll lose a lot of detail at 300mm. I'd say just pay more and buy the 55-250mm lens with is. BUY THIS AS A LAST RESORT!

    I like the 75-300mm and the ranges but not happy about out of focus pictures. Not all pictures I've taken with the Cannon EOS Rebel T5i & the Cannon 75-300mm lens are out of focus but I guess since I've read so many good reviews on the Cannon lenses, I was expecting much better results. I'm a professional photographer & thought Cannon was the way to go.

    For the price this lens would be good for a beginner, IF: You are taking photos of a COMPLETELY STILL large subject such as a human, and provided that you are using a good stable tripod and remote shutter release. This is NOT a hand held capable lens.

    This Lens is just "OK" if your taking photo's outdoors in the sunlight. But if you find yourself shooting in low light situations then this is definitely not the lens you want

    purchased in a bundle. Did not do enough research prior to purchase to realize this would not be a good lens.
