    Actually I would say, if money is of no problem at all... go ahead with the L lens. They are excellent lenses. If money is a problem and TS really need something at the range of 200mm, then maybe he should look at brands like Sigma and Tamron. Their 70-200mm f2.8 lenses are great too and much cheaper than the Canon's 70-200mm f2.8L. Another option was to get the 200mm f2.8L prime lens that is also not really that expensive.

    I shot an entire airshow with a 70-200mm f4L + 1.4TC and the result is okay. So I don't see a problem there, just note that there will be some light lost when adding on a TC and thats about it.

    Judging from the BnS threads, should be around the $550 area.

    Like to suggest you may want to rent the lens. Especially if you are not going to use the lens often.
    Canon 550D - EF-S 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 IS / EF 50mm f1.8 II
    Sigma 70-300mm F/4-5.6 APO DG Macro

    What do you mean by your question? It is a third party lens by Tamron and it had a focal length from 70mm to 300mm... and thats it.

    It is basically a telezoom lens with some closeup capability. But at 1:2 magnification factor, it really is not a true macro lens at all.

    I call it marketing gimmick. Its not a true macro lens that gives 1:1 . Just treat it as a 70-300 telephoto lens.

    I will say that the problem is not about cheap or not.. It should be, will you be satisfied with this lens after you buy it?

    Then decide. You will be shooting with it. Not us. 1 thing for sure...Canon will be more pricey. If price is your main concern. No need think already.

    I get a strong feeling from your replies that you are relatively clueless to what you want to get....I would strongly advice you to take sometime to think about what you need and not what you want....BUT if spending on what you want makes you happy, by all means, buy it...

    Need vs Want. Many of us will be guilty of spending on WANTs instead of Need. (I'm guilty of it too, should have just settled down for a 18-55 + 55-250 and a 35 f2 instead of the list you see in my Sig).
