This lens run for more than $600 in other adds but for a little over $400 I got this same lens plus the cleaning kit, rubber hood, and UV filter - what a deal. The lens drastically improved my capabilities watching my son's football games. I can see the look on his face while he is on the field, even from the nose bleed section in the stands. Though I like flower hoods, they rotate with the lens during focusing which can lose its effectiveness, but the rubber hood is somewhat telescopic, but when extended it blocks that bright light from all angles regardless of focusing because of its even-edged design. All in all, you can't beat this price, it's a steal.

The lens is made in Japan. The picture quality is equal to my Canon 18 - 135 mm lens which came with my Canon t4i camera, i.e., very sharp. A tripod is not necessary with this lens.

I had some doubts about this lens due to the asking price. It arrived brand new in the box will all the warranty information and a nice accessory package. I am a photography enthusiast who also has to take A LOT of pictures at work. I use the lens on my T2i and it works great for both my work and personal needs taking outdoor nature photos.

I use this lens with an EOS 7D and have gotten some excellent results. The shots are clear and it works pretty well with the AF on the camera. I have only used the first stabilizer mode. With this lens I've taken some wonderful portraits at about 220mm, pictures of the moon, sunrise over the lake, and birds in flight. I did have some flare when shooting the sunrise and I don't know if that's between the UV filter and the lens, or something internal to the system of elements. Overall, this is a wonderful lens and I use it often.

Although still is an expensive lens it has being really valuable, the cost compared to mortar and brick stores or other options in Amazon is really good. I have taken great pictures for long distance objects that I was not able to do it with my 18-55 mm lens for my Rebel T4i and as well as zooming objects to get more details. The stabilizer helps to take amazing pictures, I used it taking pictures in a football game and it was able to capture players moving with great details. The accessories are ok as they were included in the package.

I used this lens on a recent visit to Everglades National Park on both my full-frame (EOS 6D) and crop-frame (EOS Rebel 5Ti/700D) bodies, and the results were equally satisfying, very sharp images at all focal lengths; in fact, I had difficulty discerning any difference in sharpness between this lens and my two L-lenses (EF 24-105 mm F4L IS USM and EF 70-200 mm F4L IS USM). The primary reason I bought this particular lens was its 480 mm-equivalent reach on the EOS Rebel 5Ti, which proved more than adequate for some stunning, tack-sharp images of Blue Herons, Snowy Egrets, Anhingas and Ospreys at significant distances. I highly recommend this lens to all wildlife photographers under normal lighting conditions. I have not tested it in twilight (dawn or dusk), although I have few concerns on that score because both Canon bodies I use produce very acceptable/printable images at higher ISO settings.

I use a Canon EOS Rebel T3i. So far have mostly taken indoor pics at high school and college basketball games. Taken thousands of pics and almost all turned out great. Usually just have camera set on the auto sports mode and auto focus, so it's pretty easy to use. The accessories are nothing special, but for $405 it's a great deal.

I chose this lens because of the image stabilizing feature and the 70-300mm zoom. I shoot mainly close-ups of birds. Sometimes a good shot will present itself when you don't have your tripod setup. That is the biggest reason that I bought this lens with the image stabilizing feature.
