Looking for a 300mm telephoto lens.
Aug 10, 2011

I just got my 500d, and I currently have an 18-55, and a 28-105. I'm looking for xx-300 or xxx-300. I don't know which ones to even consider, there are so many.

I know I don't need IS. It would be nice, but I'm keeping a low budget of around 250$. Used works just fine for me. I really like my 28-105's USM, so I'd really like it to have USM, or HSM, or whatever the particular brands version is.

Looking at these two, but am not limited to canon. Please give any feedback and suggestions!
