    Canon 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 reviews

    EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM Lens is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 231.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite lens I am a photographer that travels a lot. I find this lens the very best for traveling. On my 5D Mark II I get 1:1 and on my 7D I can get range like 44-480mm. I present digital shows of my travels to many groups every year, and they always comment on the sharpness of my images. I never have to change lens which avoids dust on sensor, and I can zoom in or out at will. I have used this lens for more than 5 years, and could not be without it. 90% of my shooting is hand held and the IS is invaluable. Carrying photo gear on flights is a breeze. It weighs no more than my 100-400 IS lens that I use for wildlife.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My only lens needed After reading several lack luster reviews about this lens I still made the investment. I am not disappointed. For one price I have one lens that does it all and provides quality L lens photos. Cons: Heavy for the first two weeks Cost needs dropped by $500 A 2.8L shutter speed would be nice It is ISO hungry. The lens likes 200 ISO or better for good shutter speeds on my 5DMk1 Pros: Other men have lens envyLOL I do not change my lens in the field so I do not get dust on my senor. Sharp and detail photos. So long as you work in the lens sweet spot. (5.6F 11F) The lens is so heavy, my wife does not ask to use my camera. LOL

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile but heavy It's an extremely versatile lens which is great while traveling and doing totally different kind of shots during the same time-span. I.e. visiting a town: close ups, portraits, buildings, panoramas; outdoor sports: close-ups, groups; nature: close-up, limited macro, landscape. The IS Image stabilizer will help also in lower light conditions. The push-pool zoom is first strange to handle but you soon find out how wonderful it is when you have a 'situation'. When I travel I have this lens with an additional extreme wide (10-22mm). Be prepared to some: "whoa!" when you get the camera out of your bag. This is unfortunately at the the expense of a real heavy weight and some reduced sharpness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this lens I am tired of carting around a lot of stuff. I have an EF 70-300 USM (which i love ). I shot photos at the Naples Swamp Buggy Races 01/2009 with this 28-300, I did not have to switch from the 70-300 to the 18-55 like before to get shots that where closer to me. I was amazed how clear my photos came out. I did not us a tripod, i was top row of bleachers, hand held, just snapping away. Zooming in and out. It took a little getting used to the slide motion, but once I got the hang of it it was cool. I did notice fully extended is not as close as the 70-300's full extension. But I am fully happy with it. I have excellent shots. Glad I made the purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should have bought this lens long ago! Just returned from a trip to Canada and this is the only lens I have used pretty much all the time. For travelling, I used to carry the 24-105 which I was very happy with, but sometimes felt I missed a shot because I needed an extra reach. Not the case this time. If I wanted a wide cityscape shot or take a picture of a bird flying at a distance, the 28-300 was there to cover both situations. The problem with the 70-200 and the 100-400 is that you need to carry an extra lens and/or body to cover the wider side. The f/5.6 aperture is also not an issue if you know how to work with it but, this lens paired with a high ISO camera like a 1DX or a 5D III, this becomes a non-issue.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wake up Call for old pro This lens is a great tool - gives me the ability to pack a single lens for virtually any shot - as long as I'm willing to carry the weight. The most incredible ability to utilize depth of field and focal length in a digital format, bringing me back into an artistic mode rather than straight documentary, then getting artsy with the digital process. Whether getting a hawk soaring on the evening air currents, or an inaccessible pictograph on a rock 50 feet away, or an extreme closeup of a grasshopper with wildflowers in bloom slightly out-of-focus behind, I again have as much control as I want!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the better things I've done Many of my fellow enthusiasts have the 100-400mm lens. I bought this lens before I knew what most others have. And I'm glad I did! This lens works perfectly with my 30D and my 5D Mark II. Especially on the 5D Mark II. This lens give you the best of both worlds. Wide angle and telephoto! I've had this lens for almost 3 yrs now and I wouldn't do without it. I now know the sweet spot is f/7.1 for the sharpest pictures this lens will give. Otherwise you do get a little softer focus with this lens but the versatility of this lens makes my other photography friends jealous. I have a super wide angle zoom and this lens and that's it! With my 5D Mark II and it's 21.1 MP it's like almost having a macro! I can't do without it. enough said.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally Satisfied I have been a pro since 1981. I have used 35mm, 2 1/4 square, and 4x5 in studio and on location. This lens is the one I use almost every time I shoot. I have the 16x35 2.8 and the 50 1.2 and I love them both, but when I am shooting sessions or weddings... this is the lens that I use almost exclusively. I have two 5D Mk2 bodies and the 28-300mm lens stays on one of them all the time. The clarity, color, sharpness, contrast, image stabilization, ease of use, durability... I could go on and on... this system replaces my medium format with six lenses and surpasses it... And the seamless use with my professional editing software that recognizes the lens with lens calibration is awesome... I could not be more pleased after almost three years of continuous use...
