    It's ok, he will keep that 50mm and sell away 70-300 in the long run. Not much $$ to lose.

    ya lor..i think i better keep my mouth shut... sorry


    P.S. one more thing abt the 75-300...the f4.5 at 300mm end is quite unusable cos it is too slow....flash may not be able to reach that far so your 75-300 is only useful under bright sun light

    i have seen a few pple who bought the 75-300....sold away in less than a month

    ok..time for me to keep quiet
