Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM

70-300_isusm
Review Date: Oct 23, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: IS and quality of images.
Cons:
Size

I just bought this lens, my first IS. Luckily this forum tipped me off about the problem in portrait mode with some serial numbers, as the first one was from the bad batch. No problem, the supplier got me a good one and I have only taken about 100 shots, but I love the lens, am very satisfied.

There's not much info here about teleconverters and I would like to use a 1.4x, can I get feedback from you folks? The Canon 1.4 is apparently not compatible, but the Kenko 1.4 may be. Any experience?
Thanks


 
Tokina 20-35mm AT-X 235 AF PRO

Review Date: Aug 31, 2005 Recommend? no | Price paid: $479.95 | Rating: 1 

 
Pros: Fits the range I most often use in my work, supposedly a great lens and a good buy according to others.
Cons:
Pictures out-of-focus

I used this lens on a Canon Elan 7E and my Canon 20D. Pictures are almost all out of focus, some worse than others.
On a comparison test with the 18-55mm Canon kit lens, the Tokina was far worse.
The Photozone ratings for these two lenses:
18-55 = 1.18
20-35 = 3.97
Looks like I got a dud, I'll be returning it to Tokina for....repair?

Whether it means anything or not, the shots on the film camera looked better than the digital photos
