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

70-300mm
Review Date: Apr 27, 2011 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: very high optical quality, very even behavior through entire zoom range and all normal apertures (f<11), great build yet moderate size for this range and construction, efficient IS, strong, vivid colors, very likeable bokeh (I like it more than my old 70-200/4 nonIS which wasn't really bad)
Cons:
rip-off price of the tripod ring which brings TCO for this lens to a rather high level

for those photographers who need/want a portable telezoom with 300mm and no compromise on image and build quality - this is the ultimate lens for Canon system. period. there really isn't anything not to like about the lens - in a relatively compact size you get an amazing package for lot of shooting subjects. not for sport guys or schnitzelgraphers, but a traveling photographer will love this lens
