Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM

Review Date: May 21, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $700.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: IS works really good, sharp, beautiful colors, light and fast, very usefull range
Front rotating lens, build quality could be improved, price (at least in Italy), no lens hood included.

I've bought this lens for sport photography and some nature. IS is really usefull and works very good. The front rotating lens is a bit annoying while you're using filters like a polarizer .. but .. you can get used to it. Except for that i'm wuite happy with the image quality not really as a L lens .. but .. i've saved a lot of money and i've bought a good flash (Metz 58 AF-1C).

I would recommend to everyone ..

Pros: the sharpest lens i've ever had for now, built like a tank, focus is fast and smooth, heavy but feels good in your hands, colors and details are amazing
Hunts a bit but it's normal for a lens of this kind
