  • Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    Sharp, light, cheap
    Focus sometimes hunts

    This lens is a so cheap and deliver sharp images. For this, it's a must in anyone's camera bag. It's also a very affordable fast lens so I use to carry it almost everywhere in case I need to shot without the flash. Great for portraits and absolutely sharp compared with the kit lens I got with my 350D. Bokeh is very nice. Excellent value and definetely recommended.

  • Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG Macro APO

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    Cheap, pretty sharp, great value overall
    No cons so far, especially for this price

    At this price it's hard to have any cons. It's my first long tele lens and I am very happy to have it in my camera bag. It is not very fast and you need good light to get good, sharp images.
    Here is my favourite shot with it:

    It's not a L glass lens but definetely a good choice in this price range.

    Warmly recommended.
