    I have a bidget of $300, and need to find a decent telephoto for my EOS 20D. It is mainly going to be used to take pictures of wildlife from a couple hundred feet.

    Any suggestions? (remember I am a newbie, and dont really need a really expesnive lens at this time.)

    I have heard that Tamron makes some decent cheap lenses.

    Mr. BadRotation, I know you are not into shooting the moon with your camera but as I was browsing through this site (provides awesome insight) I found this:

    Can others edit my Photos:

    The Canon 75-300 F4-5.6 should be under $300. Check out both Sigma & Tamron.
