Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens for school sports events I'm getting back into photography, so I'm an "advanced hobbyist" (below amateur level) who just made the jump from a crop sensor to a Canon full frame (EOS-1DS Mk III). This camera body is great for still subjects; however, when paired up with this EF 28-300mm, I gained an unexpectedly excellent ability to shoot track & field events and swim meets with excellent clarity.The slide-action zoom took some getting used to, but now I'm wondering how I ever did without it. I use a monopod to address camera shake and the weight...the lens is heavier than it looks, and it's hard to understand what 1670 grams really is until you carry this lens. However, on a sturdy monopod, I can "lean into it" just a little and use my fingertips to swiftly move the lens barrel fore-aft as needed to get the zoom I want even with an athlete running straight at me. I don't know if I would be able to be as successful with a twist-barrel zoom.In general, when it gets dark in the late evening, I have to change to a faster setup (faster lens and newer camera body), since I try to avoid using a flash. Still, this lens works well in a decently lit stadium, even with my older EOS-1DS (and the limited ISO range attendant to older cameras). Being able to quickly getting to the desired zoom is such a blessing when there is action to be captured, and again, the image clarity is surprising at both ends of its zoom range. Naturally, it's absolutely superb in the middle 80% of that range.This is a keeper, and I'm finding that when the sun is out or if I have otherwise decent lighting indoors or out, this has become the favorite lens I am using most every since I acquired it, and I've only had it for a month. Can't wait to see what it will do when I can finally scrape together enough to get a newer full frame Canon body with a better ISO range for dark and dimly lit conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought It Twice it Worked so nice I highly recommend this Lens product. I bought it when it originally came out. I used it for several years and sold it to a friend, I recently bought another unit when I realized I had been missing having the particular versatility that only this heavy lens can offer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The everyday lens from heaven I been using this lens like no other and has been permanent fixture for my nature photography adventures. Currently shoot with a 6D. Living in Oregon the elements are damp here but this lens is very well sealed off and resistant. The best part is the crisp, clean and professional look your images have. If you are a camper/hiker and want to take the best photos of adventures this is the lens for you. It definitely does the work of 3 lenses hence the weight. Yeah it might be on the heavy side but makes up in the image quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Out of all my Canon lenses this is my favorite I purchased this when they were first released, so long ago I don't remember. This stayed on my 1DSIII 95% of the time and now stays on my 5DS R 98% of the time.The best praise I can offer is - IT JUST WORKS! where ever needed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Trade off for convenience I've been using this lens with my EOS 5D Mark III for a couple of months and am happy with the convenience of not having to switch lenses. At a third of the price, I would have considered it a good value for a utility lens I use whenever I feel I'm going to be in need of that kind of quick versatility. The images are consistently very soft, lacking even acceptable sharpness in most cases. It performs reasonably well, if you limit yourself to middle aperatures in the 8 to 11 range, while sticking to a focal length between 100 and 170mm. So much for the vaunted versatility. Over-priced and over-rated. The downside isn't the extra weight, it's the overall performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best I use this lens more then any other lens I own. Amazing lens. I shoot 80 percent of a wedding with this one lens. I do wish the tripod ring was more robust. I have had to replace mine and I am sending it in this week to be replaced again. I am really really hoping for a new version very soon.
