I'm thinking about getting a Canon 55-200mm f/4.5-5.6 lens. Anyone have it?
save your $$
I'm not paying anything for it.
Good if you want to burn ants.
Ok, I just checked some reviews, and a lot of people thought it was ok for a really cheap lens, but nothing special about it. I'll see if I can get a different one. I'm trying to trade a laptop I've got for one. If anyone is interested in a trade for a ThinkPad T42, let me know! haha
Ebay it? They go for like $300+ on there.
I might. I just don't like waiting for the auction to end, then waiting for the person to pay, then waiting for it to clear into my bank. It just takes too much time. I did craigslist, and that's where the person offered me that lens, but it's not worth trading for the laptop.
free lens is like free beer... can't go wrong.
Unless the beer has aids in it.
It's not really free though, I was trading a laptop I had for it. I just said I wasn't paying for it.
it's a plastic piece of shit with terrible contrast and terrible fringing. friend had one
there are better lenses
You can get a better lens for only a little more money.
If you're looking used, a friend of mine bought a 70-200 F4L non-IS for like $450 off craigslist, look for something like that.
