Which Lens For My Trip To Vietnam?
Posted 03 March 2004 - 08:44 PM
I'm going on my first trip to Vietnam on May 20th, 2004 and I currently have the DRebel with the kit lens (18-55mm). I know the lens is perfectily fine for my skill level and needs, but I want a better lens, with more zoom for taking photos in Vietnam.
I'm on a strict budget so I've narrowed it down to two lenses. The Canon 28-135 and the 75-300mm, both with IS and USM. They're currently priced at $749 and $799 respectively at the local shops in Calgary, Canada.
Can I get some feedback on the performance of these lenses? or any suggestions on alternatives within the same price range. Thanks in advance.

Have a look at this album for some examples of what the 70-200mm f/4 L can do - everything except for the wide-angle shots:

I called around town looking for a used F4 70-200mm L series and couldn't find any. Ebay did come up with some results, but I don't really trust buying a lens through the net. Well, if one shows up before May, I'll take a look at it and consider it as a purchase.

I also find that gap between 55 and 75mm annoying as i need to change lenses to get that slightly higher level of zoom, and 28-135 wouldnt need me to be changing lenses anywhere near as often.
