Hello I am looking to upgrade my lense for the EOS Rebel T3 I do not want to upgrade my camera as it works just fine I would like to find a new lense for outdoor sports such as frisbee golf and indoor spots such as ice hockey what is the best lense for these things?

Hi,

Canon still offers several telephoto zoom lenses that would be a good fit for the CanonRebel T3.  They are 70-300mm range.  These lenses are reasonably priced.  Canon also makes more expensive L line lenses that would work well also.  If you are looking for longer range zoom lenses greater than 300 mm, Canon also offers those, however do get expensive.  Other than Canon, Lens companies such as Tamron and Sigma also make lenses to fit Canon EF-S and EF mounts, both of which will work on the T3.

Yes but you may come across compatibility issues. Just because it says compatible with Canon EF Mount doesn't mean its 100% compatible. Some camera body and lens combos don't work well together. Especially when there's an age gape between when the camera body and lens were released.

No lens mentioned so far is as good as the Tamron SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC G2. It is simply amazing, It would work as well as anything you can buy for indoor sports only being surpassed by the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III USM Lens which is the gold standard.

Yes I am glad I am not the only one who likes that lense when I am shooting thru the rinks glass it is a very good lense I use the EF 28-135 when shooting up and over the glass which is very good in my opinion
