“Whoa!” That’s usually the response I get from folks when I show up to photograph a local sporting event with a large, white-barreled telephoto lens in tow. It doesn’t matter which telephoto lens it is—they all draw attention. But that’s not what the longer lenses in the Canon lineup are for. Sure, they may attract a few more eyes than the average standard lens, but they also fulfill a useful purpose in the photographer’s camera bag: Literally, they are for reaching out.
