    In using the 75-300 at 300mm I thought that the setup was too light. I found myself relying on the IBIS to stabilize the lens rather than technique. This was because the lens+camera did not have enough mass for my standard technique to work. It looks like I have to work on a new technique for holding this lens.

    I find it very acceptable when I use correct technique and in good light. Bought mine second hand for a trip to the Grand Tetons. Test shots before the trip were sharp enough, shots on the trip were soft. I found it hard to concentrate on the settings needed for that sharp image with the excitement of a bear walking through the campsite.

    Haven't been using it much, but recently got an amazing deal on the Canon 500d Macro filter. 58mm sized and the same across my 75-300, 40-150, and a 135mm vintage prime. We will see if it was worth it with Spring macro season coming up...
