    i found an old canon 70-210 f/4 lens for sale on craigslist for $150 with a case and polarizer filter. right now the only lenses i have are a tamron 28-75 and a new 50 1.4 will be here tomorrow (finally upgraded the 1.8 :coold: ). i've been wanting something longer and would really want something thats 2.8, but this is cheap enough that i could pick it up til i can afford something better and then probably resell it for about what i paid for it. the lens seems to get some decent reviews for what it is, but i wouldn't mind having a few more opinions. :x:

    i've got a Nikkor 71-210 and it's pretty decent for the money. though i want to sell it and my kit lens to get the 18-200vr.



    edit: i'm sure the canon and nikkor are pretty comparable. both older push/pull zoom. similar quality from what i've seen.
