The Canon 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM

Called “the streetsweeper," this is Canon’s widest range L-series zoom. Quite sharp at all focal lengths with a good Image Stabilization system, it is used when the photographer needs a one-lens solution. It’s a large lens, similar in size to the Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS or Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS II. It is also a telescoping zoom lens like the 100-400mm.

Roger's Take

If you want a superzoom (10x) on a full-frame Canon camera, this is the one choice for you. It’s extremely sharp throughout the zoom range, although it has a bit of distortion at the long and short ends. It can be very useful when you are in conditions where changing lenses is not something you want to do, either because of ambient conditions or simply because there’s not time.

But don’t mistake it for a convenient walkaround like the small super-zooms for crop-sensor cameras. This is a big beast of a lens (the size of the 70-200 f/2.8 or 100-400) that you probably would not want hanging around your neck all day.

Are we out of stock?

If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.

We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.

On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.

In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.

If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
