  • Weight no obstacle

  • June 08, 2015

The most often mentioned drawback of this lens is its weight. Does this great lens suffer from being heavy?I have carried it around with me all over the world, usually for full days, say, after day, after day. Once you are used to it and carry it as you would cradle a baby,the weight fairly soon ceases to be a problem. I was born in 1935 and bought this lens in 2010 at a time that I was and still am slowed down by cancer. This lens has given me the energy and enthusiasm I need to continue nature photography. All the praise this lens gets for its many w�nderful features is well deserved and its price well worth it.

  • Not a good value, but it is a great lens

  • August 23, 2014
  • By: Brian

I gave this lens a full 5 out of 5 only because I have elected to not rate "Value". After a couple of hours, it is very heavy, it is huge and it draws massive attention with its tan color and red ring. Now that the negative stuff is out of the way. 28mm-300mm is pretty much a textbook everything lens. I have used it for almost every outdoor situation. Sports, weddings, car shows, Anything. The stabilization is very good, at 300mm you can easily photograph clear shots without a mono or tripod. I would recommend staying over 1/60th or getting a tripod at or near 300mm. I personally like the slide zoom. Once you get used to it, you will miss not having it. It lets you quickly acquire the subject, then zoom in and track. This is a fantastic lens that focuses very quickly. Its hard to recommend it, You might as well burn your money. Once you use it, it will never stay at home, it will always be with you on the the camera or the camera bag. I should not need to mention that the optics are nearly flawless, it is an "L" lens. If you need a more technical assessment, go look online.

  • So close...

  • December 24, 2013

This L series lens is exactly what the travel photographer wants. Mostly. It's a perfect focal length range for a full frame camera body, it is very sharp and despite and extended focal length range does not exhibit significant barrel or pincushion distortion. f/3.5 at 28mm is not bad and the f/5.6 at 300mm is very usable. The lens has two stage image stabilization that works very well, and in my own tests gave on average 3 stops of stabilization capability. So why is it only mostly exactly right? First, it's very heavy. Very heavy indeed. Nikon has an FX 28-300 that is much smaller and much lighter that still has great optics and the same maximum apertures. Second, it's very expensive. Yes it is L glass and that commands a premium but it is 2.5x the cost of the comparable Nikon for no better performance. Third, it's a push pull zoom and while some really like the trombone use case, the lens tends to creep out when held vertically although Canon does provide a friction ring to help prevent this. The bigger issue with a push pull is that it wheezes like a defective bicycle pump as you push and pull air in the enclosure. Some think that this brings more dust inside, but I saw no evidence of this as being an L it has some weather sealing. Fully extended the lens is very long and extremely cumbersome. Fourth, a travel lens should be somewhat inconspicuous. This beast is about as inconspicuous as a hippo in a bathtub. Sadly there are no alternatives. The 18-250s from just about everyone are for crop sensor cameras only (BAD) and the only full frame I could find to look at is the Tamron 28-300. Unfortunately they are not listed in Canada and test results find them optically lacking. Canon first released the 28-300 in the last century. It needs a significant redesign to be viable. And a weight loss program. And a serious price haircut. And to be a twist zoom. Otherwise it's nearly perfect.
