Still Trying to Figure it Out!!

Royal Image, B&H Photo
29 April 2010
  • Excerpt: This lens has been a hit or miss.....More misses than hits. I bought this lens in March at a Canon product demo. I shoot alot of church photography and haven't had the greatest of success. I am thinking that it is the "operator" but my still shots come out pretty good...I have yet to catch a person moving and not having blurr all over the place. I shoot with a 40D and a Rebel XS. I had more success with the standard 20-135mm.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Poor in Low Light
