The image says it all. Yes, the acquisition of a new lens.
Introducing the EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III lens.
Before you start bashing on why the acquisition of such a cheap lens, do note that it is to get me started on telephoto shooting on a very tight budget.
As the box says, EF 75 – 300mm f/4-5.6 III. 1.5m/4.9ft required for marco-ing.
I haven’t really got the time to test out the new lens yet, but it would be useful during my trip to Melbourne as I can do more testing over there.
I have the non-USM version, therefore the autofocus is noticeably slow and/or innaccurate at times, but you get what you pay for.
On the side note, this lens is really light and cheap compared to the “L” (Luxury) lens. Of course performance and quality wise, the L lens beats this hands down.
Chromatic aberration is quite appalling if you do zoom in at the finer details.
This lens would be useful when I can’t get closer to the subject at hand. I can’t really comment on this lens right now :/
I do wish to get the EF 50mm f/1.8 II and the Speedlite 430EX as soon as possible. Someone please get those for my birthday :p
