NEGATIVE Canon 70-300L review in PopPhoto
Mar 15, 2011

Hello,

The new issue I received today of Popular Photo has a brief review of the new 70-300L. The review, while slightly positive, is critical of the lens sharpness and contrast at 300mm, saying that the old 70-300IS has better sharpness at 300mm than the new L lens. I'm not sure that I believe this as every other review I've read on this lens praises the 70-300L's sharpness at the long end and elevates it's IQ above the non-L. The review ends recommending staying with the old non-L lens.

I just sold my 70-300IS and yesterday ordered the L lens. I'll receive it tomorrow. I'd appreciate any comments from 70-300L users. Thanks
