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

Review Date: Oct 26, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

Pros: Light weight, useful range. IS, image quality
Some distortion at 70mm and 300mm

Bought for use as a travel lens on a 5D. Image quality across the whole frame is fine with very little CA and IS works a treat.

Some barrel distortion at 70mm and pincushion at 300mm but only really noticable on straight lines and easily fixed with PTlens.

Solved the problem of using a polariser with the rotating front element by using a 58mm screw-in lenshood from an old Tamron lens.
