Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM

70-300_isusm
Review Date: Oct 7, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: sharp, light, relatively quick focus; not too expensive, although in Canada prices vary by $160 CAN
Cons:
not yet

I bought this lens yesterday and immediately went for a tryout
walk. Shot a lot of flowers and some butterflies. Lens was quick to focus (on a sunny day) at all ranges. 3 stops stabilizer makes wonders. Later, at home, tried it in some dimmed lighting and also worked well. Photos, when loaded to my notebook, looked sharp and with nice colours. But since I am far away from being "pro"-like, my opinion could be somewhat skewed towards being too optimistic.
