Canon EF 70-300mm F/4-5.6L IS USM — Samples!

Before I decide which lens to buy, I go to Flickr and look at samples. Because my main subject is people, I search as follows:

1. Log in to Flickr.

2. In the search box at the top of the page, enter the name of the lens, e.g., Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM (you can enter a generic description: Canon EF 70-300mm; this will let you browse for photos taken with variants of the Canon EF 70-300mm).

3. In the drop-down, choose “Groups.”

4. Pick a group to browse.

5. Once in the group, click Photos.

6. Choose the search icon (magnifying glass) for the group (not the Flickr general search icon at top of page).

7. In the Search box at the top of the page, type the subject that interests you, e.g., “people,” “landscape,” “birds,” etc.

Sample Photos Taken With Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM

I first got interested in the 70-300L after watching a video about it on Roy Riley’s YouTube channel. Roy is a working professional photographer in the UK whose work I admire and whose advice I respect.

  1. Jack Wilshere | Kieran Clarke | Flickr I like this one because it reminds me of the B&W photos we received from top UK athletics photographers Mark Shearman and Tony Duffy in the early 1970s when I was the photo editor at Runner’s World.
