Canon EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS USM

l217_efs1755
Review Date: Apr 20, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,250.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: clear, sharp, IS, great for wide angle low light situations
Cons:
expensive, plastic, should be upgraded to L

I should have bought this online, but I bought it a local shop and got screwed on tax. But this is a great lens. 17mm is a nice wide angle shot, it surprised me but still it is in no way an extreme wide angle.

It gives great results, I have had no problems with it at all. AF is quick, IS helps in low light. I am deeply pleasured with it.

I think Canon should lower the price a little just because it isn't an L lens and its EFS, but for my 30d, it is perfect. Perfect solution to get a wide angle avoiding the 1.6 crop factor.

I can't believe mlade10 gave this a "1", that guy is whack


 
Bogen/Manfrotto 3021 Tripod Legs

Pros: Very sturdy, cheap, quality
Cons:
a little heavy for longer trips, can't go super low... but i don't need that :)

I was very surprised that this tripod was so cheap. It is very sturdy and I feel at ease even when attaching 70-200 2.8 L to it. It seems like something very crazy would have to happen to knock this sucka over.
I am very pleasured by this product, if you're looking for something cheap and amazing, purchase this thang


 
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM

Review Date: Apr 15, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,140.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: L Glass, extremely sharp, great results
Cons:
no thus far

I'm an amateur photographer but I can still see what a fine product this is. I wanted a quality 70-200mm for sports, portraits, and walk around capability and this has satiated everyone of those needs.
The reach is far with 1.6 crop factor and you can always get more with a tele converter.
As the ebayers say, "A+++++++"

I would recommend this over the f/4 IS because the bokeh you get with a f/2.8 is beautiful and the IS is only necessary in low light situations where it would still be just as hard to get a clear shot with IS and f/4.

Those are my amateur ramblings, I really love this lens, a mucho pleasure for me
