    So I met up with him and got the lens. Its 75-300mm IS lens. I can't seem to see it on canon's website but it may have been replaced with the 70-300mm?

    This is the one

    [ame=http://www.amazon.com/Canon-75-300mm-4-5-6-Telephoto-Cameras/dp/B00004XONF]Amazon.com: Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens…[/ame]

    Looking at that price, and him getting it for $200 back in 2008 is a very good deal IMO

    I believe that is the first Canon IS lens. It was great at that time. But in digital camera world, it is just so-so. Major improvement in the new one that replace it.
