Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS USM

Review Date: Jul 18, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,100.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: The best light weight and affortable telephoto "IS" prime, sharp, fast focus, good result with 1.4x TC II
Not so good with 2.0x TC II, AF can be slower with TCs

Stack this with 1.4x TC II and you will have a 420mm IS lens, good enough for outdoor big birds like Blue Heron, Egret, and Hawk, sometime an Owl or two.

The "IS" isn't loud at all like other said but it's noticed if you listen carefully.

The built-in lens hood is a plus, no worry about losing it and spend hundreds of dollars to buy one.

The lens is light compare to my 70-200 IS, but the build quality is the same as other superteles.

This is the best "IS" tele and the cheapest tele that you can get.

Oh and the look from others just funny, you won't regret it...

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

Review Date: Jul 18, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $80.00 | Rating: 8 

Pros: Cheap, sharp, best bang for the buck!
Poor build, easy to break, needs extra care for it!

Every Canon users should have one in their bags. This is the 1st lens that you have to buy for being a Canon dude! :-)

Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM

Review Date: Jul 18, 2006 Recommend? no | Price paid: $500.00 | Rating: 4 

Pros: The widest zoom for 1.6 crop and $xxx less than EF-S 10-22mm. Well build, EX grade and solid.
Soft at f4, had to stop down to f8 and lower

I was trying to get a wide zoom since this Sigma 10-22mm is a bit cheaper Canon. But hey, after two copies, I gave up this lens. The 1st copy was OOF on the left side about 1/3 of the pic even down to f22... WHAT? :-(, and the 2nd was OOF on the right side about 1/3 of the pic... the same thing as the 1st copy... [email protected], so no more Sigma for a while. The only thing that I like this wide zoom is the build quality, it's so solid and you can feel the different between this and Canon EF-S 10-22mm. However, I don't recommanded this or other Sigma lenses until they fix their QC problem.
