  • Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III

    zoom, cost,light
    soft at the long end

    This lens is okay for the price. I don't see how most people try to compare low end lens to the L series and them give them a bad review because of that. This lens does okay at 75mm between F/9 to F/11 and at 200mm at F/ 10 to F/11. Around 300mm, its a mix bag...I shot alot of pictures when I'm at 300mm, and hope one comes out really good, so far I do end up with one thats pretty sharp and clear with out a tripod. For the price its an okay lens, if you can afford it, then I would recommend you get a better lens. If you can't, this will do okay for its price range.

    weight, IS works really well, IQ
    Front turn to focus

    I am very pleased with this lens, IQ is really great. I'm not a professional but I am picky about what I like and dislike in my photos. So far, this lens has out performed my 70-300 ll lens. Although its not a L or DO type lens, it does a great job. For the cost, you will get a good lens with IS.

  • Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

    IQ, decent AF speed, PRICE
    pretty cheap feeling AF switch and body

    The IQ is really good. Everything else works really well and for under a 100.00 US, I'm not going to complain about the build.

    Fast USM, IS works good, IQ is good

    I found my copy of this lens went beyond my expectations. It is sharp enough in its category and price range. IS works good in some low light situations. Would highly recommend the lens to anyone.
