Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM

Review Date: Jan 1, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

Pros: A very nice portrait lens, great bokeh, fast and silent, bright.
in comparison to 50mm 1.8 should not be that expensive especially with that plastic finish.

Pros: Very well build, good grip-for those with larger hands, quick menu/picture style, great buffer, exchangable fucusing screen, 6.5 FPS and very quiet mirror mechanism.

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM

Review Date: Dec 9, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: Incradable sharpness,fantastic colours,very bright,super fast and silent.

I was lucky to buy this lens as used in Japan, so it was not that expensive.However after using it for a while I would buy it again, even new.Its worth it!!!
Of course it is heavy but when you do not have to take pictures straight for a longer while, leting your hand to rest from time to time its not that heavy. You will survive,plus I guarantee that you won`t feel any pain after seeing Your pictures taken with this spectacular lens!

Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM

Review Date: Apr 22, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: Fantastic colours. Distortion are minor.Build extreamly solid at the same time not heavy.

I have expirience with many Canon non-L lenses like 17-85, 28-135, 20-35 also Tokina 28-80 f2.8 also some sigmas and you can not even compare to this 17-40 F4. I use it on 350D (Rebel xt) and it gives you great results. Its the matter of fantastic balance in the picture of great colours and sharpnes.If you expect that the sharpnes will make you drop on your knees you are wrong.17-40 L its sharp but its not -I would say-over sharp that you can expirience using some sigma lenses.
Sell all your non L lenses (except the prime ones of course!!!) and buy 17-40L . ITS REFRESHING!!!! :-)
