 Post subject: IS Lens
PostPosted: Wed Mar 26, 2008 5:15 am 
I am taking photography classes for hobby and I bought a Canon 400D I was planning to buy a 70-300mm lens. Well my delema is weather to buy the regular lens or maybe just hold on from buying and save up more for the IS lens. Is IS lens a must for a telephoto lens or is the cheaper non IS lens will do?

Thank you

Personally, I feel that you'll need Image Stabilisation if you're shooting handheld at 300mm even in broad daylight cause at that focal length, the slightest wobble will be create blur images unless you intend to mount the lens on a tripod to use for portraits then IS won't be necessary.

It is a very nice feature indeed. So if i was you i would probably save up. Have you had a look at the EF-S 55-250mm F4-5.6 IS?
