Canon Extender EF 1.4x II

Review Date: Oct 1, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: Image quality, build, performance
price :)

Price almost the same as my Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8. But besides it - no complaints. Images (combined with 70-200mm f/4L USM) are still very sharp. Auto focus just little bit slower - but sometimes feels as fast as without the TC. Wish the 2x can give the same results and performance. Smile

Owned it just less than 2 days. Sample of pictures 70-200mm f/4L + 1.4 TC II @ http://www.pbase.com/boedi/ef_tc

Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC

Review Date: Sep 22, 2005 Recommend? | Price paid: Not Indicated

Pros: Solid Build. Reasonably fast auto focus. Sharp. Excellent color. Fast. Relatively light.
None so far.

Ideal as walk-around lens. Good for potrait, indoor (f/2.8), and landscape. One of the best options available for this zoom range and aperture. Have been using it for almost 4 months. No complaints so far.

Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC

Review Date: Sep 21, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

Pros: Solid build, excellent hood, reasonably fast zoom (even without HSM), excellent performance/price ratio.
None so far.

It's my 2nd best lens I've after my 70-200mm f/4L. Have been using the lens for almost 4 months. It replaced the 350D kit lens right away and become my main lens for shooting indoor and landscape. Posted some sample pictures in different application (e.g. landscape, indoor, and outdoor).


Highly recommended! Wish Canon has the same range for its L lens. Smile

Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM

Review Date: Aug 27, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: Sharp,light, fast AF, solid build, price/performance ratio.

My 1st L lens. Was considering 70-200mm f/2.8L (non-IS) and Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8. Decided to choose this mainly because the weight and 2nd price. Very impressed with the result. Now, I know why people keep mentioning the "L".
