    I was a bit inattentive when I bought this and happened to buy its predecessor first. The second time I ordered right and what difference it is on them! Much faster and above all quieter focus!

    The building quality is very nice. Image stabilization is exemplary!
    Relatively small and easy.
    Picture quality is very good but I'm not qualified enough to give any professional judgment. But those who are professionals say this is the best long-zoom lens that can be bought for a human award to Canon's EF-S gang! Compared to its predecessor, it is especially sharp in the corners that will be significantly better in this. Then the focus, as I mentioned earlier. Unlike the predecessor, this lens can be filmed without being disturbed by a slow and loud focus. The difference is huge!

    I bought my as a "white box" (= kitobjetiv where the seller shared on camera and lens and sells them separately) on ebay for about 1300kr and can not be more satisfied!

    Very affordable option. Weighed between Tamron 70-300mm and this but this was ultimately due to lower weight and price, and I do not run with a full frame camera. The image quality is nothing to complain about, especially given the price, and image stabilization is very good. You can take photos handheld at 250mm with anyway 1/50 with good sharpness.

    Have not had the lens while yet. But taking a few pictures and compared to my Tamron 18-270, and oh what a difference. Canon lens is much better, no doubt. Feels spontaneously quite similar in sharpness with my now sold Sigma 70-200 f / 2,8.

    Highly recommended, you want to have better quality it will be enough to buy Canon L lenses, but also to upgrade to full-frame is probably not much difference.

    The only negative is of course light sensitivity, but it is as good as any other cheap zooms so considering the price it's hardly worth noting.
