Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM

Review Date: May 20, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $640.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Sharp, light, cheapest L lens, USM motor
Large hood, kind of expensive to get 77mm filter

I have been thinking for a while whether I should get 17-40L or 16-35L. The thing is you won't really need f2.8 most of the time when you are shooting wide angle shot. You want more DOF when you are shoot wide angle. So I don't think it is worth it to pay so much more for just a couple more steps. This lens is really sharp at f4 and it is one of the cheapest L lens you can ever get. Perfect for 1.6x D-SLR and even better if using on a full frame camera. This is my second favorite lens beside my 70-200 f2.8L IS.

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM

Review Date: Apr 6, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,500.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Good range, sharp image, powerful IS function, constant f2.8!
It is kind of expensive, but worth the money. A bit heavy.

This lens is awesome. Get for sport, portrait, and wild life. This lens is pretty sharp even wide open. This is by far one of the most popular L lens. This lens is pretty good boken too.

Canon Extender EF 2x II

Review Date: Apr 1, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $265.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Great extender for the L lenses. IS and AF function still works when attached to the lens. Weather and dust proof. Awesome images when stop down to f8.
Lose 2 stops and lose a little bit fine detail. But you have to really look closely to notice

No question about it. It is the best extender for your Canon L lens. If you wouldn't mind losing 2 stops, this extender gives you a very good reach. Very light to carry around. Well build, AF and IS functions still works on most of the lenses.
