Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM

Review Date: Jun 7, 2005 Recommend? no | Price paid: $400.00 | Rating: 2 

 
Pros: IS, Range
Cons:
Price, soft, price.

Canon made a zoom with IS for people who cant afford the L price. Well, you get what you are paying for.

Stay away from that lens. Save morem and get yourself a good monopod with an L zoom without IS.

Review Date: Mar 22, 2005 Recommend? no | Price paid: $1,100.00 | Rating: 3 

 
Pros: small, IS, range
Cons:
slow, soft, black :P, expensive

I was looking for a tele zoom with IS for hiking, and the DO wont be the one.

Get a white zoom if you really want a good tele zoom. Forget the DO.


 
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

Review Date: Feb 7, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $100.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Sharp, cheap, small. Amazing lens for the price.
Cons:
None

Everytime I get a new lens, Im never sure its a good copy. But this time, Im sure I have a good one, a perfect one actually.
My 50mm 1.8 is giving me the sharpest images I never had. Simply amazing. Even at 1.8, its sharper than many lenses I had in the past.

Im now considering to get 2 more primes now. The 85 1.8 and probably the 28 or the 35mm.




 
Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC

18-50f28
Review Date: Feb 1, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Small, light, F2.8, Sharp , Price , Warranty
Cons:
Not always focus where it should be. Very sharp only at F4+

I took a lot of amazing pictures with this lens. If you cant afford the 17-40 L, this is the lens you need.

(Like the 17-40 , a hood and a pouch are included with this lens).


 
Canon EF-S 17-85mm f4-5.6 IS USM

EF17-85
Review Date: Jan 19, 2005 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 3 

 
Pros: Range, IS, Size
Cons:
CA, soft between 17-35, price

I returned this lens after only 1 day. I think its too soft from 17 to 35mm. Its also only F4 wide open.

For 100$ more, you can get the 17-40L.
