Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS USM

ef300mmf_4_1_
Review Date: Oct 3, 2011 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $899.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Fast focusing, IS is outstanding. Great build and honestly it's one of my favorite lenses I own. Fun for a cheap price.
Cons:
Not too much. The IS is a little noisy, but I dont have issues with that. If i were to suggest one thing, I'd like bigger front glass on it, maybe a drop in filter.

this is one of the best (for the price) lenses i have ever used. for a littler under/over (varying where you buy it) $1000, this fast canon prime lens can capture everything from a senior photo to a well lit hockey game. It's build is rugged. It has survived 10 months so far with me in Afghanistan, and the glass just keeps on producing better and better pictures (1Ds/7D). The fast focus combined with the 77mm glass paints quite a picture, with excellent contrast and minimal CA, even in full frame. I enjoy shooting this lens more than any other because of its weight (compared to the 300 2.8) and its ability to focus so darn fast! Overall I gave it a 9 because no lens is perfect (besides the 200 1.8 of course). great job canon, cant wait to see the mark II version of it!

Pros: Absolutely fantastic lens. very little abberation, extremely sharp, the DOF is insane!!
Cons:
none.

This needs to be (if not already) the standard lens for every professional photographer. It's build quality is amazing (it's survived a deployment in afghanistan, enough said). It's sharpness is unmatched by any other EF standard zoom lens. I'm somewhat sick of people complaining that there is no IS on this lens. I see very little reason to need IS in a lens like this. The hood on it is also well made. This lens is amazing on my 1Ds, and equally as great on my 7D. The price is fairly high for the average photographer, but you're getting so much more than what you're paying for. Every photographer should have this lens in their bag.
