Default My cams

Digital Still - Sony W5, a 5mp camera with Carl Zeiss Lens!! Great clarity and functions for an ametuer to play with!!

Video Cam - Again a Sony DCR-TRV19E, a mini DV handycam with Carl Ziess lens!! Compact and loaded with lots of functions!!

Analog Still - Olympus A 300, broughtaround 15 years back!! Amazing camera with motorised zoom, remote and stuffs like that. Too much of functions to play with for a right guy! Still it is hot!! Looks like a digital camera!!

No way! Collecting lenses for one family is tough enough, how can I maintain two families. I have already spent close to $2000 on olympus lenses.

Darn! Ok, now I may get very serious about this one. Look at customer comment number two.

Samurai, i did an extensive research on canon 70-200 f4L hereand was very pleased with the overall rating.I also checked various other resources like dpreview.com, thedigitalpicture.com,amazon.com,photoxone.de to ensure that i am buying the right lens.

Lens you are looking seems to be damn good for the price. It beats canon in terms of speed and range (and in terms of sharpness),but since there are only three reviews, i would suggest you to do further research before taking the plunge. you can start here

all the best.

regards
tifosi.
