I would only use PayPal with Rakuten, lately they had some security compromise in regards to credit card numbers being stolen.

OK lens, but I got it for $350 on one of those FutureShop sale events with stackable coupons.
Some people just don't get that online forum posts shouldn't always be taken seriously.

how is this compare to Tamron SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD Lens
Tamron is newer with significantly better image stablization and overall build and with a good-looking hood.

The Canon is functional with all the necessary features for a tele-zoom but all a little dated, focus ring feels cheap and tends to loose up a little bit over normal usage, plus it's less than $100 cheaper but no hood.

Image quality is comparable, both a little bit soft on the 300mm end. For now I would recommend Tamron.

I've tried both lenses, and most of that is true. The tamron does have a bit of creep too, but not as much as the canon. As for image quality from 70-200mm tamron is much better (almost as good as the canon 70-200 f4) but yes it does soften at 300mm.

for $279.99 hands down get the Tamron. AMAZING deal
