    by Mangalika | 9th of May, 2013

    by Leakeem | 21st of November, 2012

  • Review: 70-200 4L USM

    by Chanevy | 18th of July, 2012

    I debated long and hard before buying this lense. It cost more than I had ever spent on glass before. And what I really wanted was the f2.8. But, if I went with the 2.8, I knew that I would need IS due to the weight of the lense and that added significantly to the cost.... More

    by Bradcalkins | 14th of April, 2012

    I used to be seeking the perfect P&S - one that was good enough in quality to allow me to abandon the idea of carrying my dSLR for all but the most critical situations (naturally the dSLR is the first choice in the home or studio as weight and size are not factors)... More
