    it's not a very fast lens, but I think it would work. i'm just looking for a cheap telephoto lens... I think i'll buy it tonight.

    70-210mm f/4.5

    hmm hunt out a review and see what the macro ratio is - I suspect its telephoto "close focusing" - ie 1:2 - but you never know..
    Also I like this sell - much better :)

    I think I'd look for a Canon brand lens, I've never heard of that one.

    lol, no kidding. the last auction only had 30 or so minutes left, so I was in a rush to find out info.



    I found reviews -- looks good to me.

    if it looks good and if you managed to find a more recent review (to check compatability and performance for you current camera) and you have the cash then give it a go -

    cool, checking them out right now.
    I ended up not buying the lens last night, anyway. I guess I will tonight.
    thanks for the link
