Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM

Review Date: Jan 15, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,175.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Canon, 100 - 400 IS. Very well built, feels good in the hand. Weight has a stabilizing effect (inertia). Sharp and clean.
Haven't found any.

I know people are all over the map about the push-pull design withthis lens, but since it was made that way befoer they bought it how can they complain?
AF nails it virtually all the time. Razor sharp.
And a BLAST to use!
Can't wait to get to Klamath to get some shot of eagles and such!


Sigma 28-70mm F2.8 EX Aspherical

Review Date: Nov 22, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $225.00 | Rating: 8 

Pros: Great range, fairly fast focusing. Good contrast and resolution. Great price!
Auto focus is loud. (no big deal)

I tied this at the store just to see how it focused compared to the 18-55 that I have. Fell in love and took it home, hasn't been off the camera yet Wink
Close focusing is a big plus. Not quite macro, but it will have to do until I can get the Canon 100 macro.
This lens is much better than the Sigma I used to have, both in build quality and performance.
