  • Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    sharpness, lightweight, great IS
    only built quality.

    I am an L lens freak, got almost all of them including 7 primes, etc.
    Well in this case dont listen to us L-lens freaks. This is really a hidden gem. The DO version is useless, the L-version is outstanding, for built quality.
    This IS USM version however is sharper then both the others, the IS although a bit slower works to perfection.

    with optics you normally get what you pay for, not this time, here you get three times the value. Its a real eyeopener.

    Only a few weeks back I shot en entire Land-Rover campign with this lens, now that says something.
