Had this lens for years and it is fantastic. Works great for action shots or for casual use. Delivers some really high quality images and with a range from 35-350mm can cover more than most lenses. At 1/2 the price of the 28-300mm it is a great option that is worthy of consideration. As far as the two other reviewers claims of it weighing 5 pounds - they are very mistaken. This lens weighs 1300grams or a touch over 3 pounds (big difference to 5 pounds).
Some wont like the trombone style slide of this lens (same as the 100-400) but I prefer it when making fast changes or following something in motion.
Wish this lens was still in production and if mine died I would buy another tomorrow. Great lens!!

Update - 11-9-2012
Another year and this lens has not skipped a beat. The slide was getting a touch sticky which was instantly restored with a quick wipe with a baby wipe.
Lens remains impressively sharp. While it cannot compete with the 70-200mm F2.8 MkII - it is 1/2 the price and twice as wide and near twice as long in range. It is also more compact and a hint lighter. Remains a favorite!!

This lens came out back in 1993 and was a main-stay all-in-one.....until Canon finally came out with a 28-300mm with IS fairly recently, and thus ended the run of this excellent lens.

It's not always an easy lens to find, but I highly recommend any used copy if you're looking for a 10x zoom to cover a wide range. On my 40D crop body it translates into 56-560mm on a full frame....so don't expect this to get much by way of wide at all. However, for general photography, I find that it is still extremely functional and provides exactly what you'd expect in a lens like this.

The 28-300mm is certainly a more powerful lens, especially with the extra width on the wide end, not to mention the excellent IS. The 35-350 doesn't have either....but then it costs less than half of what a good used 28-300mm garners on the open market. So it's a trade off that I can more than live with.

The newer 100-400mm Canon also competes somewhat with this lens, especially if you are using the long end. If you don't expect to be shooting much in the 35-100mm range, you might consider the 100-400 Canon....because a used copy of each of these lenses is within a [...] the 100-400 has IS, and the 100-400 is not near such a chore to haul around. Be forewarned that the 35-350. does weigh a hefty 5lbs, so the weight takes some getting use to. But the +'s more than "outweigh" the cons!

Get a good used copy of this lens for under [...] and I promise you will not be disappointed! It's an excellent lens, worth of the L name through and through!

This lens doesn't get a lot of reviews. Maybe because it is an older lens. However, it performs awesome. I really like using it. The range is incredible. Works well with my Canon 10D or 1D Mark II N. It is not as fast when zoomed in and 5.6 aperture is criminal but I can get really close to the subjects. It is heavy at 5lbs and after taking a few hours of snapshots you get to wish you had a lighter lens. The quality of the photos is amazing though. It may not be as sharp as the newest Canon 24-105mm but it's up there with the L lens professional quality you want. Much much better than my yellow band 28-105mm but the price is lifting and lugging this moster around to get better photos. If you can only take one lens for 10 days, this is the only one you need. No image stabilization so you have to crank your ISO way up to get good results and no shake, I learned that the hard way. I was shooting at 350mm with too slow shutter and it showed blurry at the end of the day.

I wasn't expecting much for a 10X zoom, but this lens handily beats all of the consumer and mid-grade zooms in my experience (on a 5D mark II). I'm normally not a huge fan of push pull zooms, but it would probably be very hard to accurately and quickly twist between 35 and 350mm. As it is, the slide tightness adjustment works very well, and can also be used to lock the lens in place.

F/5.6 at 350mm isn't too shabby, and F/3.5 on the wide end is almost a large aperture. With all of the new cameras out that can shoot at crazy high ISO's, this lens becomes very useable, even indoors and handheld. The only real negative is the size and weight (about the same as my 70-200mm 2.8), but considering the image quality and zoom range, it's very hard to complain. It's also hard to justify double the price for just adding IS in the 28-300mm.

If I hadn't used it myself, I probably wouldn't have thought twice about this lens. Having looked at the pictures this takes, I'm very impressed! It's a hidden gem of an older lens, and well worth a look if you run across one.

It's very old, but looks and feels new, and I only paid $700. I've taken thousands of photos with it in a few months because it stays on my Canon 7D most of the time for landscape photography. I use a tripod and can pop the camera off (leaving the lens on the tripod) and handhold with my Canon 10-22 or 17-40L--then back to the tripod and the 35-350L. I'm a pixel peeper, so I've carefully learned what works and what doesn't. First, it works best in bright light. Second, it is for landscape photography, not macro photography and not low-light photography (redundant statement for emphasis). For macro and low light I switch to a Canon 50, 85, 135L, 180L or 300L prime. Switching takes precious time, which is the point of the 35-350! I hate missing once in a lifetime opportunities while switching lenses!

Here is the most important thing I've learned. The 35-350L is very sharp throughout the range if the right f-stop is chosen and under the right conditions! Of course, as I said, I use a tripod. Above about 250mm, my copy of the lens is very sharp in bright light at f8-f11, sometimes is sharp wide open and never is sharp closed down. At 135mm, it can be amazingly sharp, has a reasonable close focus distance and I haven't noticed any problems wide open or closed down. I love it at the wide end also. With a crop sensor camera, it has no vignetting. I just need to know when not to use it, like at sunset above about 200mm I haven't had much luck. I've also had to do some fine tuning with the focus and pixel peeping to check to make sure I've gotten it right, which is quicker than switching lenses. I'm still learning when not to bother and just switch lenses, but most landscape photography in bright light seems to work out as expected for an L lens.
