Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM

ef135mmf_2l_1_
Review Date: May 9, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $0.73 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Fast autofocus, decent low-light, inconspicuous matte black, sweet bokah, solid build
Cons:
Pricey, Inconvenience of Sneaker Zoom,

Labored long and hard over picking this up--it's almost worth more than the rest of my kit combined. But at the end of the day, I gave in, and am pleased with my decision. After shooting for a couple of days, I've ended up with a good number of shots that border on the magical. I guess I'm an L believer, or at least ascribe to the order of the One Thirty-Five. Amazing bokah, contrast, etc...optically unimpeachable. The only true qualm I have, which others may experience, is that you'll start to more notice the limited resolution of a Rebel XT--it just can't keep up. Time for a 6D, I guess, whenever that comes out.

 
Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 XR Di Zoom AF

28-75mm
Review Date: May 3, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $345.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp, quick lens for a great price.
Cons:
Autofocus not quite up to par with USM.

Bought this lens as a walk-around for my Rebel XT. Since then, it hasn't ceased to amaze me with high-quality shots and great low light ability. This lens is highly recommended to anyone who cannot afford the 24-70.
