Showing 101-110 of 500
The Best Canon Lens For Under $1300
15 August 2013
Summary: A Awesome lens for around $1300 Brand New...and one I recommend 100% for the Advanced Amateur and semi-Pro it has the best of both worlds a Decent price and Superior Picture quality plus 4-stop image stabilizer with 2 modes and also 2 focus modes that are very helpful for fast focus, (IS)Image Stabilized 4-stops). Is it right for YOU??.... well that's a hard question but here are some key facts and situations that may help you decide... Pros..
Excerpt: I always check out a new lens to see if it needs any in-camera micro adjustment to the autofocus. I compared it to my 24-105 which has always been very sharp. The 70-200 is even sharper, so I'm quite happy. The only negative is that the IS motor is louder than my 24-105 and I wouldn't have expected that.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
Conclusion: I debated for a long time before shelling out this much on a lens. I couldn't decide between it and the non IS version. I'm so glad I purchased this lens. A big plus to this lens is that it does not change length when you zoom. The images are really sharp, and the image stabilizer is a life saver when needed. This 70-200 is the best bang for your money, go buy this one. You will not regret it, that's for sure!
Pros: Fast auto-focus, Superior build quality, Super-sharp images, light weight, amazing is
Excerpt: This lens will quickly become my everyday lens now that I have a full-frame sensor camera. The quality is outstanding and the IS feature more than compensates for the F4 aperture as you can easily get 1 to 2 stops more. Much lighter in weight than the F2.8 version at a much more affordable price.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I've used many good lenses over the years (Nikon, Zeiss, Canon, Schneider, Leitz, Rodenstock) and this one deserves a place in the list. It's sharp, has good contrast, and focuses quickly and accurately. It's also relatively compact and light for its focal range.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Good contrast, Lightweight, Sharp, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Lens is sharper at f5.6 than f4. Some images are very sharp, others are not at all. I am in the early stages of using the lens. Further testing is needed, but am concerned about the occasional blown focus.
Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
