I just had to get a new lens so I picked this up for $200:
Canon EF-s 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS.
It's my first telephoto and my third lens after my kit 18-55mm and my 50mm 1.8.
I have yet to learn how to shoot with a telephoto so I assume I will be using my tripod a lot right?
Anyway this week we are getting 10ft surf in San Diego so I was thinking about setting up on the pier. I should be able to get some good shots with this.
IS is well worth the price. Makes shooting hand held at 300 doable.
Think of it this way. If you have to shoot with a tripod (lower shutter speed) how are you going to capture fast moving objects sharply?
yea i agree I will always get 'IS'
I will be taking some surfing shots this week at morning and mid day. I wanted to get some shots at a local high school football game tonight but I'm thinking the light situation may be to low for my f/4-5.6.
I am hoping my tri pod will come in handy then.
