I use this lens mostly for wildlife photography. It really allows me to get up close and personal with creature over 10 feet away. The clarity is exceptional.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Needs to have IS
About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
I use this lens frequently for birds and dolphins at the aquarium. I like the still shots I can get with it close up but when it comes to fast movement or camera shake its a no go. I am going to get the 250mm lens with IS, so I can have most of the zoom but with clean action shots. We tested theory and put my smaller lens with IS on it and it is the lens not my camera.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Its a lightweight proformance lense
By Adrian the rose photographer
from Brigham City, Utah
I use it as my main lense, i am mainly a scenic/wildlife photog. Only thing i wish it had was a macro setting for close-ups for like roses, geraniums and the like. But for the most part a good all around telephoto lense, that I can use daily.

I would buy this product again
By Radio Bill
from Pittsbutgh, PA
Usages of this lens are fire scene photo, sports and general wildlife. Over all the lens focuses fast and has good balance but the operation of the zoom is unsmooth.

About Me Getting started
I got this lens after purchasing a Canon Rebel XTI. I wanted a zoom lens and this one did the trick. When my girl frined is driving, Or I am over the road on a long trip, I take my camera along. this lens works well with shooting while on the move or stationary of all types of scenery. I can change very quickly to the wide angle and back and still usually get the shot I want. Great lens for the money

I got this because I wanted to be closer to the action. So far it's delivered. Zooms right up in there. The only thing is that it doesn't auto focus if you are too close. But that's no big deal. It's got a good enough range that I can just pull it back some and do the trick. Or just manual focus. Highly recommeneded.

Okay for budget telephoto lens
By Jim the triplet-dad

About Me Casual user
If you need the least expensive telephoto capable of 300mm, this is the ticket. But depending on the subject to be photographed, the distance between camera and subject, and lighting conditions the auto-focus may be unable to determine the proper focus. If you do not mind using manual focus, then this is a good lens. Because of lens length and weight, camera shake is VERY noticeable (tripod recommended). Knowing what I know now, I should have saved up more money for a similar lens with Canon's Image Stabilization.

Sharp zoom lens for wildlife photography
About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast, SLR user since 1961
Surprised how easily works with Canon EOS 300D. I shoot in Tv mode, and this lens captures wildlife with crystal clarity, even while changing shutter speeds for different shots.
