Best Telephoto Lens in the $250 range? (For Canon EF Mount)
Could you guys recommend the best telephoto lens in the SGD $260 range? Probably going to buy a used lens.
If its third party, its ok with me as long as the quality is better than if I spent my money on a canon.
Something to complement my 24-85mm Canon would be nice.
and oh..I'm using this with a D30.

a second hand canon 75-300 III USM or a tamron 70-300 LD marco
the canon one can be found quite easily second hand

How bout the 70-210mm f3.5-4.5 USM?
dunno if it falls within the budget though...

Decent priced tele for $250
How about the old old Canon 70-210mm F4? It's a push-pull design but the advantage is the constant F4 and the lens is really quite sharp. I got mine 2nd hand for $250 from the Camera Workshop and am VERY happy with it...
