Canon EF 22-55mm f/4-5.6 USM

ef_22_55mm_f4_56_usm
Review Date: May 12, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 7 

 
Pros: A small, light, cheap, reasonably wide starter lens.
Cons:
Plastic, no FTM, doesn't have real USM, image quality...

I bought this lens shortly before I bought my D60 - sold it not too long after... I found this lens to be pretty decent considering it is a variable aperture consumer zoom.
Some of my favorite pictures were taken with this lens (http://www.serifin.net/port/images/06.jpg) and I even have a 20x30 of this image (http://www.serifin.net/port/images/03.jpg) taken with this lens.
A good starter lens for those that can't use the EF-s consumer lenses.


 
Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 EX APO IF HSM

Review Date: Dec 29, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $500.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Price, quality, f2.8, hood and collar included
Cons:
No IS, It's not white :)

A great alternative to the Canon versions for those on a budget. It's quite usable at f2.8 although I think it's not quite as good as the Canon f2.8 when used wide open. Heaver that the Canon non-IS version, not as heavy as the Canon IS version.
Works quite well with the 1.4x converter with very little quality loss at f4.0-f5.6 From f6.7 and up there is no visible quality loss.
