EF 70-300 f4-5.6 L IS USM - Is it a Lemon?
Mar 9, 2011

Have just got the new EF 70-300 f4-5.6 L IS USM and have been giving it a run. I am disappointed with the sharpness at 300mm.

Attached 2 shots below taken at 300mm at very high shutter speed and small aperture. I expected sharper images from an 'L' lens. Would like to know what others think? Am I being too critical or have I got an 'L' for Lemon?

Cheers
