Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM

Review Date: Jan 22, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

Pros: Good wide angle performance, contrast
Plastic construction

I used this for a while with my 350D and I must say that it is a very good lens. One has to be careful to not abuse the wide angle capabilities of this lens.
This is one of the best EF-S wide angles available for the Canon crop cameras.

Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM

Review Date: Feb 6, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $984.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Extremely Sharp, great 4-stop Image Stabiliser, weight
The Image Stabiliser makes too much noise, sharpness at the minimum focus distance (MFD) is not the best (but it's still pretty good)

I mainly use it for portraits, landscapes and street photography.
I have also extensively used it as a birding lens as this is the longest I have in my arsenal (for the moment). I have used it with the Canon 1.4x II TC. It still remains tack sharp with the converter.
It also doubles as a good macro lens for flower photos.

It is light enough to lug around on long trips and when taking photos on the street. Since it is internal focussing there are no exterior moving parts when focusing.
The zoom ring and the focus rings are a pleasure to use.
It feels solid in general.

This is the sharpest lens that I have ever used. It performs amazingly both with and without TCs. Although it is not at its best at MFD, I still have no problems in using it for flower photos.
The contrast and colour rendering is amazing. When you look through the lens everything seems speacial!

Highly recommended!
