    i am buying a canon 70-200 IS f4 lens and want to buy a uv filter for protection. i am now learning how vastly different glass can be and I do not want to buy a uv filter that retards my performance. is there anything I can get in the 50 dollar range that will compliment rather than detract?

    Are you sure you want the IS? You can get the 2.8 non-IS for like $100 more, if im not mistaken?

    i already have one.....:lmao: bad joke but anyhow I want a more mobile lens and I have read a lot of great reviews on what I bought, I have not seen a single negative. my next lens will be a better 17-55 but that may be a while out.

    i bought it from bh they were very helpful, talked to a guy who seemed knowledgeable and got b+w filter as well. i like it when I offer a budget and someone comes in at less money.

    i will pst some pics soon.

    also he is a great pro, he has done some amazing stuff and anyone who can make a living touring the world photgraphing race cars must be good:hail:

    i read too much crap on the web, I just read a review that said this lense is too heavy for a lightweight camera like mine. any thoughts??? I wish I was not bored so I would not look at that crap!!!

    I read 70-200 f/4L IS has some of the best IQ - comparable or better then that from f/2.8L IS.

    imo, if you are going to spend $1K for a lens, spend $80 for the B+W 010 MRC filter from B&H - I believe this is their top of the line

    Garbage! Attach the tripod to the collar on the lens and not to the camera.
