Canon EF 70-300mm F/4-5.6L IS USM Review
The Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 L IS USM Lens is one of the many cannon EF series that have hit the markets running. This model is among the most used by many people who are enthusiastic with photography.
There are several attributes that are associated with these lenses and that is why they are very popular. First of all, the lenses are very light in weight but still are wide diameter lenses. In fact, the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 L IS USM Lens is the lightest lens among the Canon EF series. When retracted, these lenses are the shortest in the Canon EF series and thus would fit perfectly in whatever kind of camera bag that you have. This ensures that the lenses are easy to carry; increasing portability.
This 70mm zoom lens is good for general purpose use as it has a recommended focal length for a second lens as well as the wide angle advantage. These properties make this lens superior in use to all the other previous and smaller versions of the Canon EF series. There are also larger lenses in the same series with a better focal length range but the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 L IS USM Lens overshadows these other lenses with the wide angle property. However, one disadvantage for long focal length range for medium sized lens is that there is normally a variable maximum aperture. When using the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 L IS USM Lens the exposure parameters will change over the focal length range.
When it comes to the aperture size, the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 L IS USM Lens does well as compared to other versions of the Canon EF series. This lens has a wide aperture as compared to other lenses of the same focal length range. When selecting the kind of lenses to buy one of the most significant things to consider is image quality. This is normally the bottom line after everything else has been considered. The Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 L IS USM Lens produces good image quality and would be recommended as it shadows all other similar lenses with superior image quality.
Still with regards to the kind of image quality that the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 L IS USM Lens produces, this is a well built and superior quality camera lenses. The hardware is well built and very compact. The focus rings as well as the zoom rings are very smooth and have no play at all even when the lens is focused up or down. However, the focus ring is positioned at the rear end and this might prove a challenge to some people as most people are used to the zoom ring being at the rear end. Nonetheless, with prolonged use of this lens this wouldn’t be a big problem as one gets used to the arrangement.
