Beginners and intermediates can gain so much experience shooting on a telephoto zoom with this inexpensive yet effective lens.
The autofocus works well. No image stabilization is to be expected for this price, but if you are just beginning, this creates an opportunity to be a better photographer by learning good hand holding techniques as well as using a tripod or monopod to stabilize your photos/videos.
I wouldn't buy a 70-200mm F2.8 or a 400mm F4 until I'm already making enough money through my photography to justify it as an investment.
*Disclaimer* The moon shot was taken with the addition of a 2x lens extender and then cropped some. 300mm 1/160 F5.6 ISO 250
Update: After another month of use I'm updating this review to discuss the lack of image stabilization. I haven't found camera shake to be an issue at all while shooting in the daylight. I've used this lens to take perfect images of birds from a long distance. I also recently did some sunset photography at the beach, although I used a tripod for that due to the low-light conditions (sorry about the lens flare but I uploaded all of the clean shots to iStock already). I haven't missed the lack of IS except when shooting in HDR.
The autofocus, on the other hand, is a little slow, so it's not great for video or for getting long-range shots of a fast-moving target.
Another Update: After more than a year of use, I'm reducing this to 4 stars now that I have upgraded to the Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 SP Di VC USD XLD and see a major difference. VC is Tamron's image stabilizer and it makes a massive difference. I almost never need the tripod during daylight. It's a heavier lens, but not having to carry the tripod around on hikes more than makes up for it. Also, the USD (USM on Canon lenses) is fast and accurate, so I actually use autofocus instead of always using manual like I did on the Canon EF 75-300 III. Finally, I love having full-time manual which allows me to fine-tune the focus using the focus ring without having to flip the switch from auto to manual.
In short, the Canon EF 75-300 III is still a solid and affordable option for a beginner. You'll get a lot of practice with switching to manual focus and using a tripod. When you are ready to spend 5xs as much money on an infinitely better lens, check out my full review of the Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 SP Di VC USD XLD.
