What’s new and the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS

The next phase. While attempting to write and review stuff, life has a nasty habit of getting in the way. It’s not easy to blog and keep a 9 to 5. Well, it’s actually more like a 7 to 6. So, I’m changing life a little bit to allow more time to focus on the fun part of life and less on the 9 to 5. It’s going to be a busy 3 weeks. However, there is a long list of new products that I will be getting to review and use.

For now, I’ve been using the 70-300mm f4-5.6L IS more lately. Many people are questioning this lens and whether it’s a good buy. It is. First of all, it’s very compact. I travel a lot, so packing light is essential. Second, it’s doesn’t include a tripod collar. Yes, that’s true. FYI, it’s doesn’t need one. It’s light enough to hand hold and has IS to take care of any jitters. Third, it’s sharp, really sharp. And finally, 300mm on a 1.6 crop sensor means I’m getting 480mm of focal length.

More to come.
