Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

ef50mmf_18_1_
Review Date: Dec 15, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $79.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Fast, Cheap. Best bang for the buck lens made. Great for portraits. Did I say it was fast
Cons:
At this price, are you kidding??

The Pro's and the Con's spell it out. No Canon owner should be without this lens. The focal point on a 1.6 crop is just the ticket for portraits, and F1.8 will show you what fast glass is all about. Once you buy this lens, F2.8 may just become to slow for you.

 
Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM

Review Date: Dec 15, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $470.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: Sharp,Good build for the price. IS & USM. Macro.
Cons:
5.6 is a bit dark. Zoom is a bit sticky.

When I first got my 20D I ordered the EF75-300 zoom. When it arrived I put on the camera focused on a stop sign across the road and ugh!!!(never fired off even one shot). I put it back in the box and rushed to the store. After getting my money back I checked out what else might do for my new cam. Thatís when I came across the 28-135 IS USM. It had IS (great for unsteady hands) USM (full time manual focus) good range (for me) and macro. Since that day this lens has almost lived on my camera. The images that it produces are good for prints up to 8X10 and even a little larger, oh those so rare perfect world shots. It gives you all the tricks in the book and lets you discover the wonderful world photography. As your skills advance, you may move on to better glass (as I have)but there will always be a place in my bag for this great do it all lens.
