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

70-300_isusm
Review Date: Feb 15, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: sharp,IS,price(good prices used)
Cons:
build quality,no lens hood

For the price you pay(easily get a good copy for under 500.00)This is one great lens. Having owned a tamron zoom of the same range, this lens blows it out of the water. Sharper, faster focus(and quiter) and holy crap does the IS help.

comparing it to my L lens, I would say the IQ is close(considering I payed almost a third of the price)I would say the only down fall is that the build quailty is not as good(again keeping in mind the price)

Overall I am very pleased with my purchase and at this time feel that I am well outfitted with my three lenses. The image quality at all lengths is excellent. Go ahead and buy one , you wont regret it.

Oh and by the way bought this lens recently from a fellow FM'er Mandy Klemchuk , and the product and experience was a great one and I highly recommend buying from this person.


 
Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM

24-105lisusm
Review Date: Nov 21, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,100.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Super Sharp, fast focus, colour/contrast, great build.
Cons:
a bit heavy

The only reason anyone could give this lens lower then an 8 rating is because they were unfortunate to get a bad copy, or they dont even have the lens and are canon bashers.

Just bought the lens and took about a hundred test shots and boy is this lens great. I had a 28-135 IS before which I enjoyed but now with this lens I see a world fof difference.(sharpness, colour, contrast, etc..)

So for anyone thinking of buying one , if this is in your money range and you want a great walkaround/leave on lens then the 24-105 f/4 L IS USM.

Oh plus I just bought the rebel xti(had the 300d before) and boy for a consumer body its great for my needs also.
