Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM

Review Date: Dec 11, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 5 

Pros: Cheap, Ok for average snapshot
Slow, Slow focusing, Tripod realistically required much of the time above 200mm

I have had this lens for several years and admit its my least used lens. However I have managed to get some decent shots although the CA, lack of contrast and slow AF have not been benficaial. If you are after a cheep second lens whist just starting consider this but also look at sigma and tamron.

Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM

Review Date: Oct 19, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: Image Quality, Build, AF speed, sharpness
Would love it to be faster but would be much more expensive

I am very happy with this lens, It replaced my 18-55 EF-S. Much better constructed and sharper but then 10x cost.
But I can use it on my 50E giving an ultra wide angle.
Love it.
