Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM

Review Date: Dec 25, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,150.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Small and much lighter than my 70-200 f/2.8L IS. Optical quality FAR better than I expected from reading revies, when put head to head with the 70-200L. Optically better at 300mm than the 70-200 with a Canon 1.4 Extender! So far haven't found flare to be a problem.
Relatively slow (trade for small size.) Everything's a trade-off, and considering the size, I've not yet run into negatives.

See above. A keeper! But will keep the 70-200 f/2.8 when I don't have to carry it far. This lens is fantastic!
