    Hi

    I have upgraded from my fuji finepix s5500 to canon 350D.

    i am loving my 350d but i am really missing the reach my fuji had.

    any advice on a 300mm lens. (budget £200.00)

    I know you get what you pay for but i ain't got much money.(getting married this year)

    thanks in advance

    Anthony

    You also might look into getting a good teleconverter and a shorter lense too...

    I have a 70-300 4.0-5.6 that I absolutely despise. My advice is to save until you can do it right.....

    I paid £150 for my EF 90-300mm, Brand New off eBay. Try there, and then you could spend £50 on another lens. :D

    the 100-300mm 4-5.6 USM is a pretty darn good lens for the price (about $240, but I am sure you could find a goo used one on www.keh.com for under $200)


    It is a very nice, fast-focusing lens.


    Couple sample pics:
