75-300mm

I have a 450d and mostly take landscape pictures, but think it would be useful to a zoom.
What do you think of the Canon 75-300?

Re: 75-300mm

I presume you have a lens which will cover wide-angle for landscapes in which case a zoom could be useful. However, in that price range, you should consider the EF 70-300 f4-5.6 IS USM. I have owned one, recommend it and assuming the light is good you'll get some sharp shots with good IQ. HTH.

Re: 75-300mm

Stephen is right. AFAIK, the 75-300 was the older model that was replaced by the 70-300. The newer lens is superior in all aspects.
