reviewswhat are people saying

"I would strongly recommend the zoom telephoto AF70-300 mm Macro Autofocus Lens. I used it on the deer and wild turkeys in my backyard. It was easy for a person with arthritis to use. Loved the autofocus."

"Seems like a pretty good lens. Picture is clear from what I've seen. I use it mostly for film on my Canon T2i. Does get a little blurry at 300 zoom. But overall I am satisfied with the purchase."

"I wish it weren't so noisy, or slow to focus. It's definitely a lens for patient people, and one to learn with."
