Do any of you have this lens, how do you like it. I am between 3 lenses, this one, the 28-135 IS and the 70-200mm f/4.0 L
I like to photograph sports and wildlife along with landscapes but am finding out there is not one lens for everything. :roll:
You guys can see my other lenses in my signature Help me decide.

It's a good lens. I have it, but honestly don't use it any more because I now have the range covered with L lenses. The IS is very useful, especially at the longer end of the lens.
Speaking of L lenses, you might want to consider the 70-200 f/4. It's not as long, doesn't have IS, but is a great piece of equipment. The optics are fantastic. Pricewise, it's just a little more than the 75-300.

I am considering that lens, B&H does not have it in stock but guess I can look elsewhere.

I have both the Canon 75 - 300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM and the Canon 28 - 135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM. Having both of these lenses gives me most all of the range that I need. My only item left for the wish list is a macro lens.
I have two young sons, who play sports. The IS on both lenses has been great:
- For sports with no camera shake.
- School events in the gym with poor lighting that requires longer shutter
If I could afford them I would go with the L series lenses, but these have great optics too.
