Canon 90-300/4.5-5.6 USM

Canon uk-store are selling 90-300mm zooms as "refurbished" on ebay.
I was looking for a light telephoto zoom so bought one in the auction for £67.

I wasn't expecting much but was intrigued by Canons "This gives an improved out-of-focus background effect." comment in the description.

Arrived yesterday and I took it out for a trial on my 5DM2.

Its really rather good. Sharp, very even across the frame and with no soft corners, even wide-open. What was most impressive however was the really nice bokeh.
Excellent for a cheap lens.

An unexpected bargain.
