Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM

Review Date: Aug 25, 2003 Recommend? no | Price paid: $590.00 | Rating: 4 

Pros: Price, Focal range, IS
Cons:
Soft and Sloooow AF

It is not bad 75-300 Zoom for the price what I paid for. But I didnít get the sharpness what I want. I could not live with this slowest auto focusing zoom lens and I am happy that I sold it.

Review Date: Jun 14, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $710.00 | Rating: 8 

Pros: Very good lens for the Price what I paid for. Handheld shoot able even at 500mm and gives sharp enough pictures. Solid lens.
Cons:
Little warm colors (may be with D60). Need more lights! Filter Size 86mm!

I was not sure at all when I ordered it. After I saw many reviews and Forum discussions I decided to get them. I ordered this Solid lens 50-500 along with Sigmaís 15-30. I am so happy that I got what I paid for. Worthy one If one canít afford to get Canons 500 L like me. It is surely better and faster than Canonís 75-300 IS which I sold a week ago.

I thing weight is not a mater here. If you want solid and well constructed Zoom lens with 50-500 APO, canít expect lighter than this(1900 gm).

Of course its need more lights! Its clearly an outdoor and day light lens. If one set to higher ISO like 400 or 800 and aperture value above 8.0 can make great shots. A great 500mm for far shooters.
