70300mm
Review Date: Nov 18, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $100.00 | Rating: 7 

 
Pros: Price, good level of sharpness & color, big zoom range
Cons:
Noisy and slow AF, macro switch sometimes gets stuck, slow, a litte soft on the long end

If you're looking for a tele lens to start with, you can't really go wrong with this one (considering what you get for the bucks). This was my second lens right after the Canon 18-55 kit lens, and it was already a considerable step upwards in terms of image quality. You get very decent pictures from 5.6-6.3 on, especially below 200mm.
