Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS USM

Review Date: Jun 16, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $875.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Amazed at what this lens can do. I love the IS and I love how sharp this lens is. It's perfect for sports and the macro feature on it is even better. I'm kicking myself for not buying it earlier, I was holding out for the 2.8 but with the way I make money and spend it I was never gonna reach that.
Cons:
the IS makes a knocking sound when activated and when it disengages, plus there's that high pitched noise it makes but, can't find anything other than that that would make this lens bad.

I took this thing out the second UPS dropped it off, and man was I blown away. I could focus soo much faster than the Sigma lenses I was using before. The color, and the shaprness were amazing.

I even tested the "macro" of this lens. And the Bokeh from it is amazing. It isolates the subject very nicely.

Glad I bought one.


 
Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 EX APO IF HSM

Pros: Sharp, Contrast-ful, and its inexpensive compared to canon's 70-200 2.8 IS or not. Good for photogs on a budget
Cons:
The zoom ring is a little stiff on mine but I'm hoping that thats because of lack of use.

Bought a DG EX version from a fellow FMer and was very pleased with the first images I took with it. The color and contrast of this lens is excellent. As I stated in the pros: This lens is great for those photogs on a budget, good quality, good build and comes with hood, tripod collar, and niffty little bag.
