Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM

Review Date: Oct 12, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: Very sharp, fast AF, weight, price
Tripod collar would help the balance on tripod, but it's not necessary. Not weather sealed.

My first L lens definitely didn't let me down. It's very sharp and the USM AF is very fast. Lens is pretty light for what it is, so it's not bad to carry around. F/4 without IS needs pretty much light, but F/2.8 or IS would make it a lot heavier and much more expensive.

Bang for the buck rating is very good, highly recommended!

Canon EF-S 17-85mm f4-5.6 IS USM

Review Date: Sep 30, 2007 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 7 

Pros: Versatile lenght, IS is nice
Not good at 17mm, slow apertures

It's pretty good walkaround lens and you can get decent shots in many conditions, but getting very good shots isn't that easy. At 17mm, especially wide open, the quality isn't that good. IS helps on low light, but slow apertures aren't helping.

It might be good choice if you get good deal like 400D + EF-S 17-85 IS but there is better lenses for same price. If you want IS and pretty handy zoom range, you might be intrested in it, but don't expect miracles, atleast on 17-25mm.

Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM

Review Date: Sep 30, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

Pros: Image quality, weight, size, very good at portraits
Nothing major

Image quality is stunning for consumer lens, it's fast enough (F/2.8) and it isn't expensive at all. It shines on portraits and it's good lens for walkaround. Handy size and weight plus 60mm is pretty nice lenght for many situtations.

Highly recommended.
