There is a very good EF 70-300mm (not 75-300mm) which is well thought of for it's fast AF that would be worth looking at - a bit of extra reach on sports fields is rarely a bad thing.


The 70-300 II, Colin? The reach may also include cost for the soccer photographer. Definitely worth checking to see if it's available as a refurb.

Dave, yes, I think it is the 70-300mm ii - the latest one. IMO it is better than the others mentioned.

Worth mentioning that the OP raised this question a month ago and confirmed back then that his friend had already bought a 55-250mm.

Not sure why it has been resurrected (not by you Dave) now with further recommendations - perhaps not reading the thread beyond the first post ?
