Almost as Good as a Tokina 80-400mm Lens!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canon EF 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 III Lens (Camera)
I bought my Canon EF 75-300mm f4.0-5.6 III lens from an Amazon seller late last year. Used it on my Canon 1000D to take many photos of just about everything. It is surprisingly good. Yes it does "hunt" for focus in poor light (but so my much more expensive Tokina 400mm lens!). The lens isn't image stabilised (neither is the Tokina). My example has a nice smooth zooming action, and manual/auto focus. There is no focus lock on the barrel, so the lens does tend to "creep" open to it's full extent when being carried. It is a nice lightweight lens. I can carry the Canon all day with this lens fitted and hardly notice it. Photos with the Canon lens are crisp, with great colour rendition. I have not noticed any chromatic abberations yet. I find it takes clearest photos when at f8 to f16 range. (in otherwords, in summertime!). I will try and post some examples with this review. For the money, it is great value - and being a Canon lens, it is of good quality.
