  • Excellent Buy for the Money!!
    Reviewed by bigron452 - June 8, 2017

    I purchased this lens a couple months ago and just used on a trip to St. Maarten. I own a couple L lenses and this lens holds its own quite well. The auto focus is instant and accurate and the photos are very sharp. Chromatic aberration is held to a minimum, colors are bright vibrant .. the build quality is pretty good, not quite L quality (but it doesn't cost L money either!!) I couldn't be more impressed .. Great images through out the zoom range .. If you're looking for a really good lens, at a good price, that focuses at an incredibly fast speed .. you're looking in the right place. If it came with a lens hood it would be the perfect buy!!

  • Long Zoom Lens
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Coop - April 9, 2017

    I got this lens to shoot my kids sports games. I can usually get close enough for the kit lens that came with the camera. But for those times that I can't this is a lens that gets me close enough to get a great shot. The price was great and the build is awesome for a father who likes to take pictures. I would have gave it 5 stars but it is not great for night games. I higher Fstop would give it 5 stars. However the better lens costs way more than I could spend at the time. I will look into that lens in the future as I need it.

  • Very Poor Lens
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Chris - April 6, 2021

    Thinking the Nano version would really help with focus this lens really let me down. Very seldom hits focus at anything over 70 mm and you need lots of light for that. I tried it on full frame rp, crop 80d and a T5i. None could make it work. Missed several shots of elk that were too far away for my 24-70 L lens. I am returning this and may try a Tamron instead. Don’t use zoom that much as most shots are landscape but I needed it on this trip. Very unhappy.

  • Nice improvement on an old favorite
    Verified BuyerReviewed by settergirl - March 26, 2017

    I recently bought this lens to replace my old lens of the same size. My old one had been having issues so I needed a new one. I really like the improvement in this lens, it's much faster to focus and I can reach out in distance than my old lens. I think this lens for what it is, does really well and the photos it takes are really nice. This is a good lens if you need to cover some distance, and don't have a lot of money to spend.

  • Good lens for the money.
    Reviewed by Borgisz - March 26, 2017

    This lens takes sharp, vivid pictures and has a good IS. I use it on a T2i. I couldn't find anything wrong with it yet. I believe this worth the extra money. I would recommend to buy it. I have this lens for over a month. I got this for the exchange of the Canon - EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM which has weak picture quality and the IS is not so great, I wouldn't recommend to buy it. I had two copies and both had the same issues.
