Review Date: Dec 4, 2008 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 3 

 
Pros: Inexpensive
Cons:
Soft, especially at the long end.

I bought this lens about 1990 for my Eos 650. It was ok given that I had very limited skills.

When I bought the original Digital Rebel (300D) I figured I could use this lens-- boy was I disappointed. The image quality was dismal.

So I bought an 70-200L4. What an eyeopener. Of course the L lens is much more expensive, but the difference between the two was incredible.

I will say the lens is pretty robust-- much better constructed than newer canon inexpensive lenses.

I still have mine-- I tried selling it but the bids were less than the cost of shipping.
