Canon EF-S 17-85mm f4-5.6 IS USM

EF17-85
Review Date: Dec 30, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $250.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Great quality images
Cons:
Build a little cheaply for the price

Despite some reviews, I look here

and understood for my experience in L-series lenses I owned that images are high-quality.
This because there was an used copy in sell.

I am very satisfied with my copy, amazing images, this lens remember my serie-L, in one thing is superior: the weight is human.


 
Canon Extender EF 2x II

Extender_2x2_1_
Review Date: May 14, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $350.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Color, AF speed, compatibility
Cons:
None, it's a 2x

Here an example:

On my 70-200 L 2.8 IS the 2x work very well.
I am satisfied. The AF is fast, the compatibility on my 5D is excellent.

There is a little loss of quality, but now I have a 400!! Moreover, the color don't have loss of quality.

For my need, the 2x is an excellent choiche, the 1.4x is too poor in focal magnify: better to crop the photos at 200 than to have 1.4x in my opinion.

I bought it because in that moment I have no budget, but now I am in love with it and don't wat to change with anyone else.

I am in love why the colour are fantastic, and after a little postprocessing large prints are fantastic.
I have other lens, like you can see in my signature, great lens, but with my great surprise when I choose to print 70% of pictures are from Tamron... Only because it's telephoto?

The images are also sharp, poor vignetting with full frame, and AF is very fast and accurate.
At Olympic Games Torino 2006, Speed Skating, with AF Sport of my EOS 5D the AF was very fast and accurate... Fantastic !!!
