Suprised

The mm70 was not able to focus closer. I use it to photo birds and couldn't get a focused shot at anything closer than 20yds.

too noisy, image not sharp enough

Got this lens while on sale to pair with a T4i. it was very noisy when focusing, compared to STM lenses. After shot, zoom in from computer to check quality, bokeh was nice however with fuzzy target (not sharp as other lenses). it was returned.

Best long zoom before L Series

I bought this lens as an upgrade from my 55-250mm and am happy with the choice. This is the best long zoom lens you can get from Canon before upgrading to an L Series lens. This version has the IS (stabilizer) option and USM motor drive, and is made in Japan like other better Canon lenses. The lens was on sale for [price] and with a Canon mail in rebate of $150 this lens is an absolute steal. Highly recommended.

Low-cost Upgrade

I bought this as an upgrade to the EFS 55-250 lens for my 60D. For a bit more money, this lens offers better image quality, longer range, and the benefits of USM focusing. It doesn't have the build quality of the L-series lenses, but for advanced amateurs on a budget, you can't do better.

Impressed

I had bought a Canon Rebel T3i just after Christmas....I took it on my vacation in Jan/13 and was very impressed with the quality of the pics....but I wished I had the EF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6IS USM telephoto lens for the distance shots that I missed....I shopped around and bought it and I love the shots I can take with it to capture wildlife....I am still learning the different ways of taking photos with the camera and telephoto lens. I would suggest both the Camera and this telephoto lens....you can go for the more expensive ones but as for starting out this is the one to go with. If you are starting out you learn as you go which is what I have been doing and I love it.

Excellent

This is my upgrade lens from the EF 75-300. The difference is night and day. The quality and clarity of the images has improved noticeably. This lens is a keeper and always in my bag or on the camera.

Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.16IS USM

Got this lens 3 years ago with by D50. It is an amazing lens even in manual mode. Transferred it to my D60 last year. Clarity on long range is superb.
