Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM

ef70_200_4_1_
Review Date: Feb 28, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $500.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp, lightweight, fast focus, USM, 67mm filter
Cons:
Have not found any yet

I am a college student and wanted to by the big brother of this the 2.8 but not the IS. I had to settle for this lens and have had no problems with it yet. It focuses fast and shoots well even in interior sports with a poorly lit arena.

The lens is rather light and is not a problem to handle on my 350D. The focus and zoom rings are smooth and easy. This lens is a great one if you can't afford its big brother then why not settle for this lens. It is still and L and a good one at that.


 
Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC

18-50f28
Review Date: Feb 28, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $400.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Very sharp and focuses fairly fast. Constant 2.8 aperature and a great walk around lens for a 1.6 crop sensor.
Cons:
Loud autofocus if that matters for you.

This lens was the first lens I owned and I am very happy with this purchase. I have gotten great pictures from this lens and have had few if any problems with it. This lens is in the perfect range for most of my shooting. I hope to get a wider lens one day but this seems to do great.

The 67mm filters are cheap and the front element does not rotate making it easy to use circular polarizong filters. The hood is sturdy and works well.

I am very happy with this purchase and would rather have this lens than the 17-40 f4L because of the lower aperature. The 17-40 has slightly better color contrast but not enough to warrant the cost.
