Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM Lens Review
The Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM telephoto Zoom Lens is a slight step up from the Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III lens in that this lens adds a micromotor USM focusing system for slightly quieter and slightly faster autofocus operations.
- Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM - $234.99

What I Like
- Metal Mount
- Relatively inexpensive
What I Don't Like
- Micro USM not as fast or silent as true USM
- Not internally focused
- Lens shade not included
The Bottom Line
When purchased on sale this lens can be a decent value and a good entry level zoom lens. With that said, however, I would recommend saving up and getting the Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 VC USD instead as you will get better build quality, faster and quieter autofocus and the lens hood is included.
