Our take on the Canon EF 75-300mm Telephoto Lens

by Dave Bar
Canon
CANON AUTHORIZED DEALER

Fans of telephoto shooting will appreciate the high quality and extensive zoom power of this Canon EF lens. It may be less advanced than other lenses in the EF line, but when it's paired with a compatible EOS camera it still gives you the crisp photos that Canon users have come to expect.

Zero in on far-off objects — a bald eagle perched atop a distant tree, your favorite movie star shaking hands on the red carpet, you name it — for detailed shots with an up-close feel. And shooting just five feet from a subject, you can fill the frame with an object as small as a dollar bill. This kind of telephoto ability is an important part of any aspiring photographer's bag of tricks.

Good zoom

Written By Deggy D, Wisconsin on Sunday, January 12, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought this as a gift for my wife, along with the Rebel T3i. I was impressed by the difference in this zoom, vs the standard lens. Crutchfield gave me a good deal on it too, so I'm happy with the price.

Great beginners tool

Written By Lasscat, New York, New York on Thursday, February 09, 2012
 
When you search the reviews on various websites regarding this zoom lens, you get mix reviews. Either the reviews hate it or love it. Very seldom do you find middle ground. I, however, believe that this lens is fantastic for beginners and intermediate users who are not accustom to using zoom lens. The lens itself is very powerful, it does not have a automatic stabilizer, but you do not need it if you know how to hold the camera correctly. The zoom itself works great, getting up close to the subject. I've tested the zoom with airplanes flying by, and depending on their altitude you get clear, cut images, some images you can see the grooves on the tires as the aircraft lands, with other aircrafts, you can see the name clearly on the wing, when with your naked eye you barely see a the image. This zoom lens will help beginner photographers learn about distance, focusing, not only with auto but under manual control (which I preferred). You will become comfortable and once you are done learning and growing with this lens, you can move on to other lens that offer more.
Pros:
Easy to use, easy to hold, great ability to zoom long distance providing clear crisp images
Cons:
when using manual control, the grooves to adujust camera is not easily found at times, however, if you constantly practice, you will create muscle memory and will have no problem locating the groove to adujust focus.
