Canon EOS 30D

Review Date: Nov 29, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,000.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: build, size, weight, low iso noise, speed and of course picture quality.
Cons:
maybe weather sealing would be nice.

fantastic camera! very easy to use, not menu driven like some other brands. speed is fast, build is great, size and weight are ideal for me. picture quality and low iso noise is icing on the cake! get the grip and the camera runs for days and balances larger zooms better.

Pros: this is my favorite lens to shoot with. its a monster but worth every penny. fast,sharp, beautiful colors and boken. IS works great.
Cons:
for some maybe the weight and color of the lens. draws attention. also price too.

its a tank of a lens. i love it! yeah it sticks out in a crowd, but who cares. image quality is fantastic! IS, speed, sharpness, colors....i could go on. also with a TC 1.4x it becomes a F/4 which i like. the only issue i see is finding the right bag for a lens of this size, but thats a small issue.

Pros: build, sharpness, af speed, colors,contrast, size and weight. 2.8 through out.
Cons:
none

this lens is a tank! for some the weight may be an issue, but for me i like it. its fast and accurate lens. sharp, colors are great, contrast. image quality is nothing short of great! i use it on a 30D and love it. on a FF i would think its the ideal walk around lens.

Pros: colors, contrast, sharpness, boken, hood, size, weight and 2.8 throughout on my 30D. i bet its even better on a FF.
Cons:
none at all!!

fantastic lens on my 30D. i would like to think on a FF camera it would be perfect. i like the weight and size while others may not? personal preference i guess? its on my 30D 85% of the time. worth every penny. 2 things that could make this lens better, add IS to it and maybe make it a 17/20-75/80 range zoom with 2.8 throught? but it would most likely be heavier and bigger, and make some other lenses obsolete? no complaints on this lens. love it!
