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

70-300_isusm
Review Date: Aug 26, 2013 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Price Reach (300mm on FF) Stabilization
Cons:
Not as sharp as 70-200 2.8

Got this one to fill the zoom void after getting the 6D. The zoom distance was a big issue for me as I shoot a lot in the zoo/safari.

I had to sell the sigma 70-200 2.8 (non OS) to finance the camera, so of all the stabilized options this was my best case.

The lens is relatively sharp, focus is quite fast, stabilization works perfectly. Some of my best pictures are using this lens now, mostly of animals in the zoo - requiring a fast focus and long reach.

It doesn't have the look of a 2.8 lens, but it also weighs a lot less, doesn't look too big and theft-prone and delivers as needed.

Some pictures taken with it are on
