Ah well, I saw a fantastic deal online and bought a 35-350 at a very good price in an online auction from a very reputable seller. I know it can't compete with my Tamron 17-50, Canon 100-400 or Siggy 120-300 OS, but I really liked the look of it for a 'do everything' lens, especially when travelling!
Is anyone still using the 35-350? Any thoughts?!

I use the newer version all the time in a 28-300L ...once you get use to its weight they are fantastic lenses. You wont be disappointed with it IMO.

Fun fact: if you use a 1.3x crop sensor with a 28-300


Any guesses as to what you end up with? ;)

A camera with a 28-300 lens on the end of it?
A polar bear?

I have a very clean 35-350L I picked up online for a good price too...and it's done so well that I sold my 28-300L, netting about a $1,000 difference in price, nevermind that it's smaller than the 28-300L. I find that using my 6D/35-350L combo on my blackrapid strap gives me a pretty solid and economical "point and shoot" if traveling with no idea what I need/want lens-wise.

For what I use it for (outdoors in decent light) the need for IS isn't that big of a deal, and typically I can stop the thing down a little to clean up the IQ as well. At f/8 I can't tell a difference between the 35-350L and 24-105L.

I still use my 35-350 for football and baseball. It was my first L lens.

Yeah, once I bought my 28-300 it became my #1 lens...(well, maybe #2 behind my 50L) I tried a 35-350 at a local shop but my hands aren't steady enough with the narrow aperture at the long end. The IS really sealed the deal. But, looks like you already bought the 35-350 so...just enjoy :)

I bought a 35-350 several years ago used from an ad here on POTN. It is by far one of my favorite lenses for outdoor sports/nature shots. I have used it indoors on occasion with a flash with excellent results. I would not part with it.
I sent it off to Canon for refurb shortly after I bought it due to some quirky focus issues. They returned it in like new condition.
I LOVE it!

I use a 70-300 IS and if I need something wider, I don't mind changing lens. I don't miss many shots because I can usually figure out in advance what lens I need. And I don't mind moving a little bit. When I move I always think of my friend, pro Charlie Harbutt who uses a 50mm all the time. I followed him around once in London and he always made the shot. We walked around a little but we were younger then so no big deal. :-)

Have a 35 - 350mm L also, love it for outdoor nature shooting when walking. It's attached to my 7D and seldom gets removed, it really is a great lens in the right conditions. No plans to ever get rid of it.
