Most Liked Positive Review


Had for years, love the results

I know there are better telephoto lenses out there, but none cheaper. Results aren't always found in the gear, but in the skills of the photographer. If you're new to photography, this is a great lens for learning to control a telephoto, and tracking motion at distances. I've had this lens for 6 years and still love breaking it out. I make little money with my work, since it is just a hobby. So I have no need to buy the pricey IS lenses, it works great for me.

The Good The Bad The Ugly

For the money this lens is great...[...].On the 75-200 end, the pictures are average to above average, however 200-300 it drops off the scale fast.From a professional stand point I would look else were, but for mom and dad at a baseball park this lens if for you.

yes, I endorse quality!


from Tucson, AZ

Back in the 1960s, I was impressed to see Canon lenses on TV cameras in a TV studio I was doing an appearance in; a subsequent trip to Tokyo's Ginza led to some serious camera shopping- a Canon 35mm SLR and lenses (50mm+ 200mmtelephoto) which served beautifully for the balance of my 'round-the-work-journey following a year of travels through India.Years later, I upgraded the body to an A1 and ultimately transitioned into a 5D/ii, which evolved into an SL-1 with impressive zoom lenses. the comfort, ease of use,reliability and impressive images have always been present in all Canon photo products, and have consistently justified my continued investment in these quality products.


two thumbs up

good lens


from Virginia

I have been using this lens since I bought my camera over 2 years ago. Light weight, easy to use and takes the abuse that I give it. As of today it is still in the same working order as when I took it out of the box.

For the $ best lense I've bought



I bought this lens in about 2007. Taken probably 12000 pictures with it. 50% of them at Walt Disney World. From reading other reviews I had none of those problems. Not much of a nigh shoot person, daytime pictures very few out of focus. Some times even use a 2x multiplier. Last trip to Disney bought and used EFS55-250mm. I had all the problems with that len that people described with this lens. I put the 75-300 back on my Rebel XT and will leave it there. The rebel XT is old and a little slow, might up-date it someday.


Very Disappointed


from Detroit, MI area  -  Photo Enthusiast

I've purchased two of these new. Both autofocus systems failed after the warranty expired. I've had multiple other Canon lenses for numerous years and have NEVER had a problem. However, this 75-300 lense certainly seems to be an inferior product. Don't waste your money on this one.


A Happy Surprise


from Front Royal, VA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I needed a telephoto lens for a trip to Peru/Amazon Rainforest. This product has fit the bill perfectly. It is not too heavy and produces fantastic photos.


Good For the Price


from Cape Cod  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This is good for the price. If you're here looking at this lens then you are probably a consumer and not looking for pro level quality. This is a good lens for it's price but know that you will upgrade if you are serious about photography.


I would buy this product again!


from Rhode Island  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This lens has been great to help me photograph the my son's baseball games and my garden!!

Great lens for kitted item!


from Chicago  -  Casual Photographer

This lens came with a Canon 3ti kit. It's a decent lens especially compared to the standard Canon lens. Great for zooming still items/wildlife.
