Canon EF 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye

ef15mmf_28_1_
Review Date: Jan 19, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $500.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Small size, 2.8, easy to use
Cons:
Noisy focus since it is not USM.

This is a good lens on a 10D when you really need to get those wide angle shots. For the most part I don't notice the distortion on the sides unless I get vertical lines near the edge of the frame. Over all this is a good lens.

Review Date: Jan 18, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $320.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Great indoors on Auto mode, Recyles fast
Cons:

I use this flash on my 10D and prefer it over anything Canon has put out. It seems E-ttl would always miss the shot. I love the Metz because you can use it in E-ttl for those times when you need to and then switch it to Auto and let it do all of the thinking for you. This is such a good flash that I ended up buying two of them. I bought the optical slave for the second one and now I can use both at the same time.

 
Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS USM

Review Date: Jan 18, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $950.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Sharpness, IS, Focus Speed
Cons:
Slight noise when IS turns on.

I bought this lens to take bird pictures on a budget. I was using my 70-200 2.8 with a 2x TC, but the pictures are so much sharper with the 300 I will never go back. It is a great lens and I am very glad I bought it.
