Whats the best EF-mount ##-200mm lens I can get for under $140?
Here are some canon lenses
Never used any of those so I can't tell you what is best. But I did the best I could with your price range.
Thanks. I'm kinda liking the Canon [FONT=Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]EF 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 III USM.[/FONT]
save the money and put it towards a better lens. work with what you've got right now b/c $140 will not buy a good lens in that range
agreed. Some of those lenses are worse than the kit lens. and the kit lens is nothing great.
honestly? save your money. work with what you have now. if anything buy a 50mm f/1.8 lens. but save your money. buy the Canon 70-200 f/4L lens. the 70-200 L series is one of canon's best lenses. You can find them used for like $450. Yeah that's over double what you're asking but it blows the stupid 70-300 lens outta the water.
This man speaks the truth.
I was thinking about saving up and getting the 28-200mm USM
I'll sell you a 75-300 III (non USM) with a Cokin UV filter for $110 shipped.
Lens and glass are in great condition (no defects in the glass)...
It is of course not the sharpest lens @ 300mm but it's the cheapest way for a canon user to get to 300mm for certain.
save your cash, for $140 you'll get a lens that doesn't produce decent pictures so you won't use it and you'll end up spending the $450 on a 70-200 f4L and leaving it in the closet anyways.
save for the 70 200 f4.0; anything else below that isn't worth the $$$
