Review Date: Jan 30, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $94.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: Light, fast and sharp
Plastic (who cares for this price?)

Excellent lens for indoor without flash, and also on my 350D a good overall lens.
Everyone must have this one in his bag!!
The 50mm 1.4 USM is almost 4x this price, but not 4x better!!!!

(price in €)

Canon EF 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 USM

Review Date: Jan 6, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $277.00 | Rating: 8 

Pros: Fast USM, better then a tamron or a sigma (eq) at the same range
plastic feeling

I think this is a good and in-expensive all-round lens.
The pictures it take are sharp and good of colour and contrast.
Don't try to put the most out of this lens......

(price in euro)

for its price, higly recommend

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

Review Date: Dec 29, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: Sharp sharp sharp, USM and IS
Rotating frontlens, cheapy feel, a bit expensive and a little noisy

I' had a Tamron 18-200 but I was not happy with this lens.
Overall it was not realy sharp. So I buyed a EF 24-58 a nice overall lens. But i missed the telezoom.
So I read all the positive reviews overhere.

So I get today to my local reseller and get one.....

I'm totally surprised how easy it is to shoot at 300 - 1/125 (f5.6)with IS,
and damn how sharp are those images...........

Highly recommend
