Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM Overview

  • 1Description

Featuring a versatile telephoto range and a fast, quiet AF motor, the EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM from Canon is a 4x zoom characterized by its relatively lightweight design and compact form factor. Well-suited for a variety of subjects, including portraiture and sports, this lens spans portrait to medium telephoto fields of view and utilizes a micro USM to provide noticeably quick, near-silent, and precise autofocus performance that suits both stills and video applications. Benefitting image quality, a Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting in order to achieve high contrast and accurate colors. Additionally, it features a seven-blade diaphragm to produce smooth and pleasing bokeh.

Versatile telephoto zoom is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 120-480mm equivalent focal length range.
Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize ghosting and flare for greater contrast and color neutrality when working in strong lighting conditions.
A micro Ultrasonic Motor (USM) is employed to deliver fast, precise, and quiet autofocus performance and works in conjunction with an electromagnetic diaphragm to complement photographing at fast continuous speeds.
Seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM Reviews

EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM Lens is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 270.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It will get the job done After I bought this lens I was impressed with the clarity and clarity, but I wish I would have held out for the IS USM version. I tried to take a few shots of my little girls playing at the park and as long as I used a high shutter speed, I was ok. I am use to running at 1/80th, yet this lens seems to need at least 1/200 to help with any blurred images while on the go. I love the DOF this lens provides. I was able to really bring some new life to some of my landscape shots. Right now I have this mounted on my T1i body and for a begininger I'm pretty happy in exchange for the money I've spent. I think if your looking for a solid lens without hurting the pocket, you'll be satisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this Lense I like taking pictures of insects. I once used a point a shoot camera which was ok, but didn't allow me to get close up shots without scaring them away. I just got my first DSLR camera last month and had the same problem with the stock lens. This product was within my budget and the optical zoom was perfect for me to use. Only downfall I had was that the image quality declined once I pass the 250mm-275mm mark, but its better than no picture at all and the clarity problem can easily be fixed or corrected on my computer. I have no problem keeping stability on my shots, the weight of the lens helps. Currently saving for a macro lens.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lens, great price. This is a great lens. It's obviously not an amazing $2000+ lens, but it gets the job done. I've been shooting for a year now, and these lens do give me great results. I get close ups of animals, portrait shots, and close ups of birds from a distance, and the photos come out great. Everyone who's complaining here about the lens are obviously those who want the best photos in the world and think that cheap lens are suppose to do that. Nah man, they're cheap,obviously not the best, but they really do give great results and I would recommend to anyone who's looking for a cheap, telephoto lens.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This lens is fairly durable. It has been used in Borneo rainforest, US deserts and winter snow in the midwest. I have not had any problems w/ moisture in the rainforest and blowing dust in the desert. This lens was on my camera when I slipped on ice and took the brunt of the fall from about 6 feet. Afterwards the only problem I had was a loose screw that had to be tightened. However the picture quality provided through this lens is only average. Recommend for family outings, and nature hikes if you may run into in-climate weather. Not for high-quality wildlife shooting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice lens I am quite new to the DSLR photography. However it did not take me long to see that the stock lens that came with the camera did not do what I needed. I had a budget and this lens fell right into what I needed and also into the price range. I debated on this one with the USM or the one without. I am very happy to say that I did not go wrong in selecting this one. I am already loving the auto focus more than I can say. And the zoom difference from the lens that came with the camera and this one, well lets just say if any other newbies to the DSLR camera catagory are thinking about a new lens, you won't go wrong with this one. It does feel a little heavy out of the box, but once mounted on your camera, you really don't even notice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for the money, Not for the Quality I bought this lens at the same time i purchased a canon xti. For under 200 bucks its a great deal, light weight, compact, very portable. I took about 300 photos a day with it for the first week, to test the diversity of photos this lens can put out. It was handy to have a long telephoto lens in the bag, and i took some decent photos with it, but the quality wasn't as sharp as i had hoped. I decided to return it, bought an ef-l series lens and was blow away by the sharpness in comparison. For a budget photographer i would recommend this product, but if you can hold out until you can afford a nicer telephoto, just wait.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Solid Startup Telephoto I purchased this lens at the same time I bought my first Canon DSLR, the 60D. It has served me well as a starting point for telephoto shots. The build and auto-focus are the most noticeably quality elements of this lens; the lens has a good weight to it and is metal rather than plastic which has caused it to hold up well. In addition, the auto-focus is completely silent and speedy - very helpful when photographing sports. However, if you're using this lens in anything less than broad daylight, you will be disappointed: despite the impressive focal range (especially on a half-frame DSLR), the 5.6 aperture that comes with the full 300mm focal length is a deal-breaker, namely for nighttime sports events. Other than that, I would recommend this lens to a friend because of the sheer solid build and noticeably sharp image quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has worked well and I recommend it I have several uses or the lens. One is to capture th sports activities of my grandkids. Typically they would be out in the ball field and largely invisible to me with my usual lens. With the telephoto lens I can capture them easily. The other use is for wildlife, especially birds. I am still learning how to use it. For example, at distance I do need a tripod (which can be harder to use than the camera). I also have to learn placement because people often walk in front of the lens though that would happen with Amy lens. In sum, this lens has taken my photography to a new level, one I am still exploring.

question

This phenomenon affects all EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS USM lenses with a 0 or 1 in the third digit of the (8 digit) serial number. Products that have a third digit of 2 or higher in their serial number are not affected.What is the serial number of this product?Is this a Brand new one with Canon Warranty?
Asked by: Anonymous
This lens is a 75-300mm lens, and not a 70-300. We also unfortunately do not have access to the serial numbers of the lenses, as we are not in the same location as our warehouses. This lens is a brand new item with a Canon warranty.

question

What is the effective times magnification for a far away outdoor shot?
Asked by: Dave M.
Times magnification only apply to cameras with built-in lenses, as the multiplication power is found from dividing the telephoto focal length by the wide angle focal length of the lens. This works with a camera with a built-in lens as it indicates the full range of the lens. As DSLR cameras have interchangeable lenses, this does not apply to DSLR cameras, and such numbers would make no sense. For example, following the above, 300/7 =4.29x. However, the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS, which has a 25-300mm lens, is a 12x zoom. So, while both the Canon 75-300mm and the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS have the same equivalent maximum focal length, and the telephoto end of the zoom would look the same, the multiplication factors are totally different, and you cannot use the multiplication factor to tell the lenses have the same maximum zoom. This is why this calculation is only shown on point-and-shoot cameras and camcorders with built-in lenses, and not on cameras that use interchangeable lenses.

question

Will this lens fit a Canon EOS rebel XS and if so will there be much difference between this lens and the 55-250 lens I currently use?
Asked by: Anonymous
I use the lens on an eos rebel t3i and it works very well. Autofocus is sharp and magnification is crisp and clear. As to your first question, I believe the lens fits all of the EOS Rebel series. The magnification is probably 20 percent better than the 250,
