Great Zoom Lens for the Price!!!
[...] I bought this lens to replace my 80-200 zoom for I wanted greater range. Many reviews state that at the high-end this lens isn't quality. I beg to differ. I've taken many photos at the 300mm setting (hand held) and seen crisp, clear and amazing results. For the price, it's an outstanding lens. The build quality is greater than my former 80-200mm because it seems more solid and has a metel mount. I give it a 4 out of 5 for sure. It's not the USM so it's slower to focus.

Decent Starter/Casual Lens
While inexpensive, I found this lens lacking in sharpness when wide open, difficult for AF to lock in low light resulting in much hunting, and feeling less sturdy than other comparable lenses. That said, any step up comes with a corresponding step up in price (Sigma 70-300 APO DG or Canon ultrasonic version of this lens). For a casual or learning user tending to shoot in bright conditions, this lens will probably fit the bill.

This is a great camera and very easy to use for a beginner.
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.
Easy to use and takes great distant photos. Go addition to my buisness.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This lens has been great to help me photograph the my son's baseball games and my garden!!
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.
