Curiousity Facts: The lens was first mentioned in 02.2011 by Canon to officially be in development for a launch within the same year - but nothing happend. A first test shooting by lots of professional photographers then took place at the London Summer Games in 07.2012. Still the online rumors community was hyped by the usual suspects into thinking that the release of the lens would last forever, until the official announcement followed in 05.2013. Shortly after (that same month actually) first in-stocks were reported. End of the line: Proper testing makes great products. And stay tuned ^^.

 

 

*There seem to be some minor incompatibilities and dysfunctionalities when using IS lenses with their IS activated with older analog EOS camera models. See EOS Documentation Project for details (slightly different for the 75-300mm F4.0-5.6 IS USM here).
