Welcome to Pixalo Angelbiteme

I don't know too much about Canon lenses, but I believe that the 70-300 might be a better lens. Someone who knows for sure will be along soon.

Hi - the 75-300 is a good lens and there are some good prices. But...the 70-300 IS is much better. I've had one and it's a cracking lens for the money. Save up a bit longer and get the 70-300.

What is your avatar again Silky? I'm looking too hard at it + can't figure it out ... I'm sure we've been down this road before, but I can't remember the answer Right now, I'm seeing a skull with a hat on (or rather slipping off)

It's a heavily processed pic of a fountain with a skull superimposed. I need to get out more. (Though in my post I was referring to stepheno's avatar!)

I see the hat too

You should also take a look at the Equipment Reviews I think that these lenses have been reviewed there.

Re: i need help buying a lense

Just seen this thread and agree with Stephano. Have 75-300 which Nellie uses and 70-300 IS myself. The 70-300 IS is a better lens but the 75-300 still gives reasonable results if stopped down.
