The 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM Lens
Recently got into the D-SLR craze my self recently.. splashed on a Canon EOS 400d, over the Nikon d40x. I could really do with a lens that has Image Stabilizer when I can't be bothered with lugging around a tripod.
That f/2.8L lens certainly makes the difference... not a cheap lens thats for sure! I was looking into this type (70-200mm f/2.8) with the "IS" Image Stabilizer and it's a wacking £1244-£1340 in the shops!
Been shopping around for the following type of lens for my Canon.. 17-55mm F/2.8 with Image Stabilizer. To replace my crappy stock lens. Deals I got so far are £654-£870. £463 if i took the risk to purchase it from Hong Kong. Still thinking about it....
