Canon EF 35-350mm f/3.5-5.6L USM

ef35_350_1_
Review Date: Aug 19, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,000.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Range, coverage
Cons:
Weight

I bought this lens used from a second hand store in Japan. It is in good shape, and takes brilliant shots. I am pleased with the lens overall.

I really like the locking ring for the trombone zoom. My 70-210 f4 doesn't have this, and it makes things sloppy.

I have wanted this lens for some time and am very pleased with it. I also considered the 28-300, but with the price being 3X it wasn't justifiable.

Review Date: Apr 6, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Inexpensive, compact, easy to use
Cons:
Occasional underexposure / metereing... could be me!

I bought this camera as soon as it was available. I wanted to take it with me to New Zealand on holidays, so I ordered it on spec. with little available in reviews except the magazine literature.

I shot over 1000 frames in NZ; lots of bracketing and trying stuff out.

I have used it for tabletop techncial photos, family shots, landscapes - just about everything.

It serves my purposes well, and has never given me any grief.
