Canon EF 75-300 f4-5.6 zoom lens

With the Canon EOS 300V camera I bought in April came an EF 75-300mm f4-5.6 zoom lens.

The only time I ever really use a zoom like that is when I want to get some nice shallow depth of field using a wide aperture for portraits or get up close and personal with something that may bite or sting me!

So, I decided to use the lens at the 300mm mark (when I could) and check out the results.  I loaded the camera with Fuji Acros 100 35mm (black & white film for the non-believers!)

Happy with the outcome!  The lens worked well and gave some nice images.  For some reason I was expecting a little more grain than usual when using the lens on the full zoom but that did not eventuate. Pretty happy with the sharpness also at such a long zoom also.
