In the gear browser, the Canon EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS USM lens is listed as the 75-300 f/4-5.6L IS USM. I don't believe Canon ever made an EF 75-300 L lens.

Thanks,
Mike

Hi Charles,

I was actually looking in the Gear Browser, not the reviews. But I found the right lens. The one I was looking for (70-300 f/4-5.6L IS USM) was listed as a "Standard Zoom" not a "Telephoto Zoom".

I still believe the 75-300 f/4-5.6L IS USM in the telephoto zoom category is an error, at least, I can't find any reference to such a lens anywhere, but I may be mistaken. There is a review for it here: https://photography-on-the.net/forum/gearinde​x.php?id=46, but only one single review. :)

Thanks,
Mike

Hi Mike,

Thank you for the link.

I agree with you, to my knowledge Canon never made the 75-300 and L lens
