Re: Which lens

Hello delmonte
your Canon EF 70-300 F4/5.6 IS USM is an okay lens , but if you want a cracker of a lens go for the Canon 70/200 f2.8 IS USM Add to this the canon 1.4 convertor and you have a very good working system , oops lots of @s but worth the investment .
Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX DC I think you mean the 300f2.8 , this also is a cracker of a lens but a little limited with not zooming
Hopr this helps

Re: Which lens

If what you are looking for is a wide aperture prime lens, then you may also wish to consider the Sigma 50mm f1.4 EX DC. Then the choice will come down to which focal length you use most on the Canon 40D.
