Canon EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS USM

l217_efs1755
Review Date: Aug 13, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $995.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: 2.8, focal range (for my use) focus speed, sharpness, color contrast
Cons:
A bit steep in price

Purchased this lens as a replacement for my Tamron 28-75 2.8. The only advantage the Tamron has over this lens is size & weight (smaller & lighter) The Canon however is superior in every category related to producing great quality photos. Used it recently on a trip to Colorado & never removed it from my 20D.
Highly recommended.


 
Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM

Review Date: Nov 7, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $629.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Weight, range, focus speed, sharpness, contrast
Cons:

I've had this lens for about 4 weeks. Primarily shoot outdoor sports/daytime lighting. Very, very pleased with the results. Jpegs right out of the camera produce very good 8x10s. The lens is light in weight & compact in size. Focusing speed for sports (mainly soccer for me) is excellent. I may add that I'm an advanced amateur, not a professional photographer. I would highly recommend this lens to beginners thru my level of expertise. Pros who depend on their equipment in critical situations may feel that the "build" of the lens is not up to par however.
