Which Lens?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Photography Singapore : One Thread


I am trying to decide on whether to get a Vivitar Series 1 70-210 f/2.8-4 or a Canon EF USM III 75-300 f/4.5-5.6? I liked the vivitar as it allows me to shot at low light but the pricing cost more that a Canon (from the web).

Any thoughts?

The Vivitar lens is heavy and bigger, more expenisve than the Cannon lens you have mentioned because of the bigger aperture size(). However, a faster lens like the Vivitar doesn't mean the glass/picture quality is better. You can check out the web- http://www.photographyreview.com/ to see the reviews. Take your time to analysis as both lenes got their own advantages and uses.
