This isnt a hating post or anything like that towards you fortunate bunch who have the L glass. Waiting for my blessing of the L glass in the future i sometimes have to just remind myself that although it'd be so nice to have, i can still get great shots with my 75-300 F4-5.6 USM III lense. I thought it'd be cool for others with the similar set up could show me some great shots they've accomplished. This could be a great morale booster for those of us who can't get the L glass yet!


Here's mine that I like

Good thread. I started with the 300D and 75-300 non USM for about $150. It was a great lens for the money, and being a poor college student at the time, I was thrilled while using it. My first 100+ accepted shots were with the 75-300. Here are my favorite examples.

Canon 75-300 USM was my first "big" lens as well and I was very happy with it, keeping in mind its limitations. It can produce some nice images. It will be going on Ebay very soon.

Canon EF 75-300mm is my first telephoto zoom lens. Even it has some limitations, it could still produce some awesome images.

The following ones are mine, taken by this lens with 350D.

Canon non-L glass still rocks. It took me over a year to invest in L glass, but I was able to capture some cool shots with standard lenses.

Its definately possible to get good results from non-L glass ... but using L grade is definately the way to go if you want to get consistant results.

I've now upgraded and have a Sigma 100-300EX. I was thinking of selling the 70-300 but still find the lower end of its range uesful to have. When finances allow I'll look for something like a 28-105.

The Canon 75-300mm lens certainly enables you to take fine quality images in the right context. Cedrtainly 'L' glass has advantages, but there's nothing to be ashamed of if your lens is black  wink .

These are a couple of examples taken with a 300D body:

As others have said, it has its limits (the full zoom is for emergencies only), but within its limits it does the job.

L glass or IS would be nice, but I don't really think I can justify it.

These were shot with a Sigma 100-300 DL, a very lightweight, inexpensive zoom. Typically pretty awful 200-300, but below that was absolutely fine. The main problem is it's pretty short (for a 300mm lens) and very light, thus it's not easy to support and is very susceptible to camera shake.

The 18-55 (still my main short lens) is a cracker for the money, but is prone to softness, weak contrast, and occasionally frustrating inconsistency. Get it right though, and it's quite capable of delivering:
