This is my lens for low light fotography (I use it on a 5D).

 
Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM

Review Date: Mar 22, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: nice pictures, small size, good look and feel.
Cons:
lock to prevent zoom creep, fairly expensive.

Seems to be one of the most controversial canon lenses. Friends and sales personal tried to talk me out of it, but I wanted to have a good, compact and solid telezoom lens > 200mm, and I don't regret my choice. No quality issues as reported by early buyers (purchased in March 2006). I have to mention that I have never used one of canons 70-200 L lenses. So my comparison is limited.
(I like the green ring)


 
Canon EOS 30D

Review Date: May 8, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,200.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Large screen. Shutter not so loud as that of 20D.
Cons:
Non so far.

Larger screen and more agreeable shutter noise were main motivations to bypass 20D. My wife and me are quite happy with this camera. Not cheap but not regrets. (Indicated price is in Euro.)
