A Prime Example

Advantages: Low light performance, sharpness, colour saturation and contrast
Disadvantages: Plasticy construction and poor feel of manual focus ring

Overview ------------- The Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 sits in between the cheap-o f/1.8 mkII version and the ridiculously expensive f/1.2 L-series version. There was a crazy f/1.0L lens at one time but this seems to have been discontinued (presumably as nobod ...

Review of Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM

Canon's sharpest zoom is a rock, or brick

Advantages: Awesomely sharp. Wide Aperture gives great control. Great colour.
Disadvantages: A little fragile. Would prefer with Image Stabiliser.

Review of Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0L USM

Canon 75-300mm USM III - A good all-round lens but not perfect

Advantages: Speed, Appearance, Build quality, Price
Disadvantages: Picture quality at long focal distances
