Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM

ef300mmf_28_1_
Review Date: Aug 21, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Fast focusing, light, good IS module, sharp images
Cons:
Tripod collar should have 2 screws for stability.

Very fast focusing and light lens for its focal length. The IS feature works very well for this lens, and I've personally shot images at 1/15 with this lens and got usable images.
Images are tack sharp even wide open.


 
Canon EOS 1D Mark II

Review Date: Jul 17, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Long battery life, solid, fast AF, well built, large viewfinder
Cons:
Loud shutter, reviewing is somewhat slow.

Very fast and solid camera that I've used so far, start-up is fast, writing is fast (for JPEG), AF is fast and image details are great.
My camera was kicked over by someone few weeks ago and it still function as per normal, though it sustained only minor marks.
Shutter speed is loud though, can't be used for concerts.
Battery life is outstanding. I can shoot for around 800 shots before recharging. (I'm a heavy chimper)
