When I was a student, one of the favorite topics of conversation (admittedly after a few beers) was ... Who do you fancy the most:.... A). Betty. B). Wilma. (sorry) O.K. ... So now the photography in the 21st Century version of this...... Which is the better lens:... Don't read any further until you have had a few beers... A). Canon EF 28 - 90mm f4 - 5.6 II (Kit lens on the EOS 300 Film camera) B). Canon EF-S 18 - 55mm f3.5 - 5.6 II (Kit Lens on the 400D). Even people who have no interest in Canon and Know nothing about them are invited to put their "Twopenneth" in. After all, Who cares?.. By the way..... Betty, Everytime.
