Gah! Now i have no other choice but to pick this Canon EF-S 55-250 mm f/4.5 -5.6 IS lens for about Rm 1000. It a good lens on what most of the amateur have reviewed but still I prefer a sturdier, wider aperture and fast lens especially for telephoto. But who am i to brag, 1000 ringgit for an L- series Canon lens is out of this world.
been craving for this one for quite some time now :)
I seriously wanted this
this is the OS version btw.
A Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO DG MACRO but one thing that slack is the lack of OS(optical stabilizer, just another name for IS) in this lens. I really wanted a Sigma lens mainly because it better build quality compared to the canon above(sigma with metal mount. Makes it tougher. Canon with plastic. Not good for earth)
There is actually an OS version of this lens, namely Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG OS. OH YES! OH YES! it cost rm 300 more than the Canon 55-250 but considering all the factor, i might go on with this. Now i just need more review :)
one reason why i prefer sigma is that, it comes with a free lens hood :) no need to shell out more money on hood.
All said, now i only require the money. Petronas when you want to increase my money to rm1000 a month please? teheeeee.....
until then :)
