From the Manufacturer
This compact and lightweight EF 75-300mm telephoto zoom lens is ideal for shooting sports, portraits, and wildlife. The lens is distinguished by a newly developed micro ultra-sonic monitor (USM) that makes autofocusing quicker and quieter, along with an improved zoom mechanism that includes a silver ring on the front for a luxurious touch. The micro USM makes this version of the lens particularly suitable for applications that require a fast autofocus, such as sporting events or wildlife shoots. Best of all, the USM version shares many of the same features that makes the non-USM lens so popular, such as a compact size, a close focusing range, and accessory compatibility. As with all Canon lenses, this unit carries a one-year warranty.

With the addition of a Micro USM for faster and even quieter autofocus, this version of the EF 75-300mm is well-suited for sports and other applications requiring fast AF. The USM version shares the compact size, close focusing range, and accessory compatibility of the non-USM lens. For many advanced amateurs, the 75-300 range is ideal as a versatile entry into telephoto photography.
Isolate the Interesting Part
The eye tends to see the whole rather than the individual parts. It also sees whatís near and not whatís far. By bringing attention to those things missed by the eye, you can create many interesting pictures. It could be the grimace of an athlete, the grill of a classic car, or a girl against a blurred background. Telephoto lenses can also compress images to give dramatic effects. You are limited only by your imagination.

tl:dr; you should get this lens.
Here, I'll include a photo of a stag from about 100-150 feet away. You can count his whiskers. The quality/price ratio is totally insane. I purchases a used model for about $60 or $70. No appreciable wear, and I get $200 worth of equipment.
I'm enthusiastically in favor of this product :)
It does not have image stabilisation, but is light enough and balenced enough to hand hold fully extended at speeds as low as a 60th of a second without noticeable camera shake. There is some colour distortion and image distortion when used wide open, so I suggest f8, f11 when edge to edge image quality is at it's best.
I have used it both on a full frame and APS-C sensor body and found the increased focal length on the C-sensor to be very useful as it then acts as a 105mm to 480mm lens equivalent. However with the increased megapixels of the full frame body it is stil possible to crop centre sections of the image for enlargement to 10x8 or even 15x12 prints..
It has limitations on the speed of autofocus taking considerably longer than an L series lens, but with careful planning will give good results even with relatively quick subject movement.
In summary I would say if you just need an occasional mid tele zoom, or are on a budget you wont be disappointed if you use this lens carefully and within it's boundaries.
