Photographer Dustin Abbott reviewed the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II, a “consumer lens” that’s getting a lot of positive reviews.

In the conclusion he writes:

I was impressed by the overall handling and performance of the new Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM during my review period. It has a nice build (consumer grade, yes, but nice), and quality handling. The new LCD screen has a few debatable aspects, but I applaud Canon doing something to help eliminate what has been one of the main shortcomings of STM type lenses (no distance window) […] I’m also impressed with the image quality from the lens in terms of sharpness, contrast, and control of things like chromatic aberrations and flare. Where I think the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS most stands out (outside of the build) is the overall rendering from the L series lens, which is unquestionably more special. Nice bokeh, smoother transitions, and special color rendition that shows off its premium optics. […] What matters most is that in most every way the EF 70-300 IS II is a significant upgrade over its predecessor, and well worthy of your consideration if you are looking for a quality telephoto lens for either your full frame or APS-C camera body.

And here is the video-review of the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II.

If you prefer reading the review instead of watching the videos, then head over to Dustin Abbott’s site, you’ll find a lot of sample pictures and a in-depth discussion of the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II.

In the conclusion they write:

[…] Canon [is] great at optomechanical engineering, and the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II is no exception. And unlike some of their cameras, they don’t seem to have a problem putting all the right features in their consumer grade models. We were impressed by the numerous elements that could be optically adjusted, by the metal collars and rollers, pleasantly modular and robust construction, and the efficient layout.

The new motor is tiny. By claim, it is both fast and accurate, and it appears it will be replacing the STM type motors for use in a lot of lenses. […] I saw nothing about the motor that made me think ‘this is going to fail.’ It’s a real USM with no gear train and by our examination, no glued together pieces that might separate.

Be sure to head over to LensRentals for pictures and step by step description of the teardown.

Reviewer and photographer Dustin Abbott reviewed the Canon EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens, one of the latest additions to the EF-M lenses line-up.

Dustin Abbott praises the good sharpness, well controlled vignette and chromatic aberrations, fast and accurate focus, a very well working IS system, and even the macro mode. All in all the EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM seems to be a pretty valuable addition to the EOS M system.

In the conclusion he writes:

[…] the Canon EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM lens is going to find a lot of takers among those who buy into Canon’s mirrorless system.  The lens is the largest Canon-branded lens for the system thus far (by a fraction), though it is still very compact and light.  In many ways the size of this lens makes more sense now that the M series has evolved into more of a mini-DSLR than the square-edged original M that had more of a point and shoot profile.  The M3 and M5 aren’t really “pocketable”, and thus this lens makes more sense.  It is still extremely small and light by DSLR standards, and fulfills the mandate of being a light yet flexible alternative to a heavier DSLR kit.

The Canon EF-M 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM comes in two color variants (black and silver) and sells for $499. Dustin’s reviews come as video-reviews (see above) along with a written review with a lot of sample pics.
