Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM

Review Date: Jan 7, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: Sharp images, quality build, good in low light.

Before buying this lens I checked out the reviews on this site. I only bought it 2 days ago but long enough to agree with the vast majority of posteers here. I was previously using a 200f2.8L which is also a great lens but when I moved from film to digital this lens became too long when using a 400D.
Excellent background blur...... great for portraits or sports.
Going from the 200L to the 135 L - the wife couldn't even tell I had bought a new lens :-)

Canon EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM

Review Date: Dec 21, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $700.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: f2.8, good solid feel, sharpness

I bought this lens used about 2 years ago. I have had several other lenses come and go over the past couple of years but this one I have kept. Nice lens to use if you are out hiking with very good sharpness. You can feel confident when shooting with this lens that you will get results that can be enlarged with good results. Bargain price for L lens quality.

Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM

Review Date: Dec 21, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,000.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: sharpness and nice zoom range
It would be nice if it was f2.8 instead of f4.0 but not a real big issue for me as I also have a 550EX flash......

Nice sharp shots with this lens. 17-40 range works very well for most shots and this is the lens that is on my camera 90% of the time. I have a couple of 11 x 17 pictures in my office from this camera and the sharpness is amazing. Bargain price for this lens. Definitely recommended.
