WHAT NEGATIVES??

Few years ago I thought to do digital photographs are only "plastic" and not a skill.Since I bought the Canon A70 and then my CANON EOS 30D, I never looked back.

I will soon get the 1D Mark III when the "ship arrives" !!

All of you guys who complain about HEAVYNESS and PRICE, QUALITY DOESN'T COME CHEAP !! and also the amount of glass inside is worth the price.

I bought it second hand at http://www.jacobsdigital.co.uk/ in London UK and can say they are VERY good with their service!!

I use this lense on my CANON EOS 30D along my Canon 70-200F2.8 IS and Canon 17-40mm L and have great results with it. A friend came and visit me,bought her the CANON EOS 30D very cheap on www.gumtree.com and we set off for pictures. I had the 70-200mm and she the 28-300mm. Where I could not do the wide angle part,she shot it and most of her pics been better than mine!! Keep in mind she have an eye for art LOL.

I do not have any primes (YET!!) but will have to do a disection of tests to see if I can replace this lesne with something else.

I also do a lot of landscapes and when I leave the Canon 17-40mm L at home,this lense rocks.

Some of you complaining about push-pull zooming.Get used to it and learn to enjoy QUALITY in a lense. It is much faster to zoom than my Canon 70-200F2.8 IS between 70 and 200 because I addapt quickly to any zoom.

I took some shots at Eastbourne in the UK and was very surprised what it can do when zooming into a hidden spot when looking on the screen of the Canon 30d.

People also complain about the white coating,why don't you guys just get a camo net and attach it when you do your bird or wild life photography?
This white lense with the red line just seem to work out for me and people easily show respect when you arrive with this type of coloured lense. They will quickly see that you have QUALITY and will even ask for your business card,keep one at hand when you do take holiday snaps. I will later replace the Canon 17-40mm 2.8 L for either the Canon 16-35mm 2.8L or the Canon 24-70mm 2.8L or just get both of them.

Enjoy the snapping!!
