Good lens....The Best...great action shots....I was searching for a replacement to my Nikon camera/lens combo- I love the clarity of this lens- however, I am slightly disappointed in the range- My Nikon 70-300 was able to take much better pictures of the players on the baseball field- I cannot get on the field and the reach of the 70-200 lens is just not enough.
Canon EF 70–200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens This telephoto zoom lens is an essential tool for professional photographers and skilled amateurs. The variable focal length makes it useful for photographing a broad range of subjects, and the 2.8 maximum aperture functions well in low-light situations. Snap candid portraits, stop the action at sporting events or compose wedding photos with exceptional blurred backgrounds.
Good zoom....Good buy...Really smooth action to get that great pic....upon purchasing this lens, I forgot to make sure it had image stabilization (which upon further research is a much much more expensive option) so ended up using my 55-250mm kit lens more often....Got this in a Black Friday Bundle.
Canon EF 75–300mm f/4–5.6 III Telephoto Zoom Lens: An ideal lens for photography enthusiasts who want to take their creativity to the next level, this telephoto zoom lens provides a long focal reach for taking close-ups shots from a distance.

Nice lens...Good Lens...It worked perfect for action shoots....This one is fully compatible with my camera, and the image stabilization and auto focus work really well (a good thing, since the lens is a bit heavy for me for hand-held photography)
Snap sharp, vibrant photos at a distance with this Canon EF-S 8546B002 telephoto lens, which features a 55-250mm focal length for flexible zooming and optical image stabilization to reduce the effects of camera shake.
good buy...Must buy....Also love taking action shots with it....best 50mm for the buck, crazy sharp, 1.8 is good for low light and to use for a shallow DoF and in my oppinion is the best lens to start with for a DX body, so you learn how to possition your self.

Nice lens....Clear photos!...Takes Good Basketball Action Photos...If shooting on a Rebel or EOS 10-40D, having a battery grip will benefit as it's a forward heavy lens.
Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens: This Canon macro lens enables life-size magnification of small subjects. The included macroflash makes it easy to take close-ups even in dim lighting, while the inner focusing and ring USM offer sharp images with negligible blur.
Best lens...Good lens...It also allows for close range action shots....Closer to 10 mm gives the characteristic distortion wide angle lens are known to have and then 18 mm is the same as any basic 18-55 mm lens which isn't distorted.

Great Range...Love it....I take a lot of action pics of my boy playing soccer and the focus range is needed so I don't have to move so much....Of coarse you can go out and spend another $1000 on better lenses, but for those of us who are not making an income with this hobby, this is a terrific lens.
