I am looking for 70+- to 300mm telephoto. The local wolf camera guy has recommended a Quanaray lense, over any of the canon lenses, what do you think?
It all depends on how much money you have.
The Canon 70-200/2.8 IS is a wonderful lens, but it's $1600 on a good day.

And the $400 (list $700) 75-300 f4.0-5.6 IS (image stabilised) lens is one of the greatest deals in lenses today.
Stay far away from Quanaray crud.

Here is a shot I did at 300mm (490mm equivalent). The only postprocessing was colors/contrast, no sharpening (*but I use the custom Set 1 with sharpness cranked up +1, I hate the colors on Parameter 1 and 2):

My advice, stay away from the "L" glass, it becomes an addiction, it will eat you, your bank account and all available credit. (but their sooooooo sweet!)

Of course, so does falling down a flight of stairs.
Doggone, thanks for sharing this experience and the link to the helpful page.
Can't wait to digest it after punching out on the clock later today ...
