great product.

-Cameta Camera customer quote

I was very excited about this lens, especially given that it was such a great price. I was a little nervous about the purchase, given the low number of reviews on this site, and since the listing did not specify whether it was USM (therefore covered by Canon's warranty). The lens arrived in great condition, and with Canon's warranty form, though, so I was very pleased. I've used it on two shoots so far, and gotten some great shots!

I have been wanting an IS since I got my dream camera--Canon Rebel XTI. What a difference. I haven't had as much time as I would like to play with it but so far I am thrilled with the results! I enjoy nature photography. I can't wait to go heron hunting on the lake with this new toy!!!

Good lens, great price!

Like most other reviews suggested, the auto focus can lag behind a little. But, for the price with the IS and overall quality, it's a good lens.

Product Overview

This telephoto zoom lens is designed with Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer technology while retaining compactness and lightness, in response to demands of photographers. This high zoom ratio lens is equivalent to a focal length of 88-400mm in the 35mm format (when used on Canon EOS cameras compatible with EF-S lenses), and the image stabilizer effect equivalent to a shutter speed about 4 stops faster than the same size lens without Image Stabilizer. In other words, if the slowest shutter speed you could formerly hold a 250mm lens steadily was 1/250th of a second, with Canon's 4-stop stabilization correction, you could hand-hold at shutter speeds as slow as 1/15th of a second. It also uses a UD-glass lens element to correct chromatic aberration for excellent image quality throughout the zoom range. This new EF-S telephoto lens with great features delivers excellent performance at an affordable price for all photographers.
