Good if you're willing to manual focus.
from San Diego
The lense produces good pictures but there is one very notable problem. When zoomed from 200mm to 300mm the autofocus is not at all accurate. This is serious enough that I will not use AF when zoomed in this range. I get very nice, sharp pictures even at 300mm but only with manual focus. I've run a test to verify the problem is with the lense and not my 40D camera. MF is tedious and takes time so you will miss some shots when zoomed out. I have the patience for MF but many people won't. I recomend the lense only if you're willing to use MF above 200mm.
Great telephoto-zoom lens.
from Gansevoort, NY USA
Superb zoom lens. Good solid feel, great focus throughout the focal range. Excellent quality for a mid-priced lens.

REALLY pleased with this lens!
from Binghamton, NY
Use primarily for wildlife. Some complain the IS is too noisy--this has not been a problem for me at all. Some complain it lengthens too much with zoom and focus--for half the price of one that doesn't I'll deal with it! I am VERY pleased with this lens and would highly recommend it.
