Pros: Low price, IS

Cons: Soft over 200mm, slow AF, rotating front element, lens hood not included

Opinion: This was my first "non-kit" lens, it's a great lens to extend your focal lenght, it's useful for portraits, events and big wildlife. The IS was very useful. But after some months using it I noticed it falls and tried to deal with it: I rarely exceeded 200mm, when photographing birds I had to use f/8 or narrower to get a sharp image (slow speed or high ISO needed to compensate). I sold it and bought the 70-200mm f/4 L non-IS (this is the only thing that I miss from the 70-300mm), I recommend to save a little bit more and go for the 70-200mm.

Pros: Lightness, versatility, portability, color rendering, quietness and (hearing, hearing) sharpness throughout the focal range., Price.

Cons: Outrageous hood that, if you do not remove the automatic maf, you risk ruining something to put it or take it off. The front lens rotates and the maf ring is the same.

Opinion: Found practically new on ebay, I took it for a few mm. Plus in situations of sporting events. I already have the 70_200 is f4 L, but, in fact, at some moments I remain short. I tried in the park in front of the house in different diaphragms and I can not really complain since: it is clear enough, has an excellent color rendering, is quiet, has a very good stabilizer ... Of course you have to be careful do not rest your fingers on the ring of the maf because it rotates, but who cares. For 200 euros I found a sample that does not have the flaws mentioned by other users. I will use it mainly for soccer matches paired with the 70_200 f4 is L, on a second body. Apparently, I was lucky.

Pros: Quality 'media construction, dual IS mode'

Cons: Sharpness at longer focal lengths, difficulty 'engagement of maf

Opinion: I can not speak very well of this lens. If one decides to take a 300 would expect better performance on more 'focal lengths and so' not 'was, at least on my copy. Ugly and noisy in the maf with that rotation. I do not say a banality 'when I say that the 55-250 IS II total (construction part) returns the best files of this glass I sold almost immediately. Grade 6

Pros: good compromise between quality and price; excellent image stabilizer three stop, sharpness

Cons: front swing, hood not seriern

Opinion: Goal who honestly does his job, bought used from a friend at a really low price he was selling it for sharpness problems after 200 m. I took room service Milan to make the calibration of lenses and with 60 euro the lens is perfect now with 300m to 5.6 is a blade and I am really satisfied. I must say that is a bit 'noisy during the focus but it is not a problem for me.rn

Pros: price, image quality, sharpness up to 300mm

Cons: for the price no one, I would say the focus ring that moves and which therefore must not touch

Opinion: I think it's time to stop to appreciate a lens just because a thousand Euros. I read that is not sharp or loses to 300mm ?? https://youpic.com/image/8609244/ crap ... even in this picture in a condition quite outside what should be his work (a tele is certainly not a lens to make close up of a flower ) with the minimum aperture (so a PDC anything) at full extension (300mm), the result is excellent. I would like to see what makes the most emblazoned L apart from costing 3 times ... rnmeditate people meditate ...
