positive:Cheap Price
Some very sharp photos at 300
Nice DOF at 300

Not too usefull on Macro
comment:This was one of the Kit lenses for my maxxum 5 and it has become one of my favorite lenses on the 5d. I love how sharp the photos are at 300mm for a kit lens. I am buying a sigma 70-300 APO for my sister and I will update this to compare the two when I get it. I think it is a great lens for the price.
