Your second picture is for the 70-300 USM IS lens

You are asking about 75-300 lens.

They are completely different!

The 70-300 USM IS lens is the best non L tele lens Canon sells. It retails for $650 and is sold around $500 new and $350-$400 used.
I own it and its a great lens. 80-90% as good as the 70-200mm L, plus you get 100mm longer and stablilizer for less money than the 70-200L non-IS at $700+.

The 75-300 is a piece of garbage. It sells for $199 ish.

If you can not do the the 70-300 USM IS version, Do the Canon 55-250mm around the same price of the 75-300. Its a great value lens.
