Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM

ef17-40_4l_1_
Review Date: May 17, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $600.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp, from F4 on up, from 17 on up, sharp, sharp, sharp. Solid and abuse tolerant.
Cons:
Slow, only an F4, wish they could come out with something like say, 1.8? Ok, I'm a dreamer, but I'd pay 3 times for one.

Best lens I have, I've had it for almost 2 years and it spends 90% or more of the time on my camera, looking at the the other comments I must have gotten a nice one because it's sharp, and when I mean sharp, it's sharp at all stops, even 4, and at all zooms. It beats my 50 1.8 Mark I anyday. As for quality of build, it survived a solid dunking of beer when bottles broke in my pack during a trip, and it keeps on trucking.

 
Sigma 180mm f3.5 EX APO Macro IF HSM

Pros: Good subject to lens distance for Macro. Fast. Solid. Crisp Images. Price
Cons:
......maybe a 1.8? grant miracles? Is a bit heavy.

Lens stays on my camera for the majority of my macro shoots. Eliminates the need for Kenko tubes in most situations. Have shot some nice close up's of snakes without worrying about getting bit. Solid, fast AF for a macro, slow AF for a normal prime, as expected. All around super Macro lens.
