Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

ef50mmf_18_1_
Review Date: May 24, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $75.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Very inexpensive, light, small, portable. Produce sharp & contrast images.
Cons:
Feel like my daughter plastic toy

On a D60, it is a good portrait len. If you seldom use a standard prime but still want to keep one with a high speed for "just in case" situation, this is the len. With its low price & great quality output, I can't really complain.

Review Date: Apr 1, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Very nice image quality. Picture is sharp corner to corner (with D60). Well build. Focus ring does not rotate during AF (you have to manually adjust the focus ring to "AF" first).
Cons:
Noisy focus. Cannot use polarizer. Size is a bit big due to non-removable metal len hood.

For the price I paid for, I really can't complaint. It is the alternative of Canon 16-35 L, if the latter is too expensive for you. Highly recommended.

 
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM

Review Date: Apr 1, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Very fast & silent focus. Superb build quality. Image quality (sharpness, contrast & bokeh) is top class. IS really work!
Cons:
Price & weight.

This is my first Canon L & IS len. After using it for few weeks, I still can't put it down. It is an excellent len. No regret buying it.
