The problem with a non-is camera bodys is that you need to pay a fortune for lenses. Reason enough for me to change make :(

I bought a Sigma lens a few years back via Hong Kong for about the same price. So a genuine Canon one at this price is good.

Thinking about getting the Canon 50mm f/1.8 at some point soon.

Not a great lens (review here), but great price (comparison here) so heat and rep added.

Forget the f/1.8. Go for the f/1.4 instead. May cost £200 more but you wont want to replace it. I'd buy that or wait until you can afford it. Always buy the best glass you can.

Without the IS you really are going to find it hard at upper end of the range and I would strongly you suggest save for a bit longer and find a Canon 70-300 with IS - a bit like the one that I have in my camera bag that's waiting to go on an auction site.....

Oh, and don' worry about the whole f/1.8 and going for f/1.4 - that's a whole new step when compared to IS and non-IS steps in functionality - and a shed load more cash.

But, if you're starting out with a basic 1000d Canon or similar then this may be your first cheap step to a monster zoom

Just considering the IS version now as it happens. £380 is about the best price so far (in the UK anyway).

Sicknote - just send me yours if you don't want it :)
#9
Shame no-one does bargain deals on any of the L-series lenses.

Still a good find nonetheless. Heat added.
#10
Voted hot for the price - I'm looking for L series though to fit my 1.4x converter
#11
got this lens myself , and its only ok. gets a bit 'wobbly' after a bit of use and as said above, you will think 'wish i had spent more'.

There's a reason Canon and Nikon dont put IS on the body and Sony etc do..... its not as effective! If it was no-one would buy Canon or Nikon given that the Sony bodies are cheaper in the first place. If you want something that "does the job" then I'd say you're best to stick with a top end compact, if however you want to get the best possible, you NEED to pay the premium :thumbsup:

Without wishing to be argumentative, that's a rather sweeping generalisation. There are pros and cons, e.g. in lens means you can see the effect in the viewfinder, in body means the path of light entering the lens is not deflected on its way to the sensor.

There's plenty discussion threads on t'internet for those who wish to research further. In my opinion in body IS is a welcome challenge to the existing business model of being able to charge a significant premium for glass with in lens IS.

Average lense but cracking price. Cheapest elsewhere looks to be about £236

Just bought this at £115.20 for a student photographer. As noted above excellent price, although I notice Amazon is bouncing about, no sooner had I added it to my basket than it boinged up to £183, currently down to £122.50....

Not argumentative, its discussion and its welcome. I have used both formats and the in body was noticeably inferior, that was my point. I suppose its a bit like stereo systems, most will think that a "top of the range" HiFi system from Currys sounds exactly the same as a £2,000 separates system. Horses for courses but as I said, I have tried both and although in body IS was good, it could not match its in lens competitor :thumbsup:

Plenty of bargains on L lenses - you just need to keep an eye out for bargain used kit or do what most people do and rent one from lensesforhire.co.uk

Guys, before you buy this you should be aware that the Amazon one is the DC motor version whereas your comparison prices are for the USM version. There is a difference so although this is a good price for a beginner's lens, it is not a £100 off bargin you think it is. The clue is that all the Amazon marketplace sellers have it at a similar price.

you dont need IS unless you are constantly drunk
#23
I use the IS version of this lens every week for sports photography. Bought mine brand new for about £380. It works perfectly well and i have had it for about 4 years. Also have IS L Lens which I use and there is a difference but for normal photography use you won't go wrong with the 70-300mm IS version.

Def save a little more and go for the IS version rather than this USM lens
#24
Have the USM version of this that I bought from a mate 2nd hand. Have taken maybe 10K photos with it - motorsport stuff. It's very soft when wide open, but a few stops up and it's very good indeed for the money.
