50-60 bucks for a lens?
Naw man. Even if you could...it's not worth it.

You're lookin to spend AT LEAST 200...and that's not even for a good lens.

No, that lens is not very good at all.

If you need a cheap lens, look at the 70-300 DI version like the one here at DELL Online, will run you $150-200. It is vastly better than the 75-300.

I've used the tamron 75-300 and was reasonably happy with it's results. It is not an L or EX series lens, but if you have that limited of budget

I was thinking about getting the Canon when i was looking for a relatively cheap zoom, but i opted for the Sigma 70-300 APO DG, its also got macro capability, which i found a great plus, comes with a lens hood and soft case. its very sharp for its price, and the macro works pretty well. id look into that lens as well.
