Our take on the Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM by Crutchfield's Dave Bar
Whether you're shooting high-intensity sports or high-energy toddlers, you can appreciate the speedy photo capture that a lens with fast autofocus delivers. That's why Canon has honed the power of their Ultrasonic Motors (USM) for use in their EF lenses.
The EF 75-300mm lens with USM delivers exceptional telephoto ability, for capture of far-off subjects, or for detailed close-ups of nearby objects. And the built-in Micro USM gives you rapid and quiet autofocus. Picture a frame-filling photograph of a distant hot-air balloon, followed by a sparkling shot of your daughter's face as she watches it — all taken in a matter of seconds. With that kind of potential, this measures up as an unusually capable lens for the price.
Really love my telephoto lens, fast!

Product reviews from the Crutchfield Labs
by Dave Bar
This lens gives you impressive telephoto power and fast autofocus for taking shots of far-off subjects. Image Stabilization (IS) technology keeps images in-focus.
Why did you buy this?
Wanted a good Canon zoom lens appropriate for an intermediate level photographer who wants to try different types of shots of wildlife, sports, flowers, etc. Reading the reviews convinced me that this was a good one that would not break the bank and which I could use having an intermediate level of competence.

2 answers my lens started making a clicking noise some time ago when zoomed out past 100mm mark, I was wondering if this is normal or if any of you guys lenses made that noise. it only does it when I move it not when the camera focuses it. there is no difference in picture quality to it either, just the clicking noise, thanks, Tina. ?

I have been using my EF 75-300 for about 6 months. It's on the camera, off the camera several times during my photo sessions. I have noticed no clicking noise. [ GERALD D Jul 02, 2014 ]
