Canon EOS 10D

10D
Review Date: Feb 18, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,425.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Great quality, build and layout.
Cons:
Auto focus is so-so, bigger brighter viewfinder would be nice.

A nice transition from the D30. But now its time to go to the 1D Mark II.

 
Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM

Review Date: Feb 18, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $400.00 | Rating: 6 

 
Pros: Decent zoom range, IS
Cons:
Not sharp and very slow in auto focus and max aperature

In broad daylight this lens handles it self fairly well, but in low light situations its all over. The IS is nice, but niosy and battery draining.

Review Date: Feb 18, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $409.00 | Rating: 6 

 
Pros: Nice zoom range, faily leight weight for having IS and 72mm filter size
Cons:
Slow, foor focusing, not sharp

I expected more from this lens, maybe its a bad copy, but was disappointed. The IS is nice, but even in daylight on a tripod its hard to get a real sharp image. Its a good zoom range though for carrying around

 
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

Review Date: Feb 18, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $70.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Leight, sharp and dirt cheep
Cons:
Build quality and manual focusing

First one I had I dropped from about 3 feet, it broke in two. But its so useful that I had to re-buy it

 
Canon EF 20mm f/2.8 USM

ef20mmf_28usm_1_
Review Date: Feb 18, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $380.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Good coloring, close min focusing distance
Cons:
Not as sharp as expected

Not real wide on a 1.6x, but a nice leight weight lens to add if you don't do a lot of wide angle shots

 
Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM

ef135mmf_2l_1_
Review Date: Feb 18, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $830.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp! Great colors and bokeh
Cons:
Really have to watch out for the small DOF at close range, a little long on the 1.6x's

Debated between the 70-200 F/2.8 and this, sure glad I got it. Its so sharp its ridiculous. Couldn't be happier, especially when I upgrade to a 1.3x from a 1.6x

 
Canon Deluxe Backpack 200 EG

Review Date: Feb 1, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $50.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Small, well padded
Cons:
extra straps are worthless except for mabe a monopod, and the shoulder straps aren't well padded.

I've taken this skiing, hiking, biking etc and landed on it without any problems.
