Hi guys,

Cause i only got 1 17-50mm lens on a canon 60d.
I am looking at EF 28-135mm f3.5-5.6 IS USM which need your help to see if there are any lenses you have experience before which can be comparable and i will go do the google search.
I prefer your input as i felt they are more valuable then some lense review page.
And EF 70-200mm f4L USM is tempting thou

Are you looking for extra range? Since you say 28-135, I guess a fast lens is not required. What's your budget?

Before you plunge into buying lenses, evaluate what are your needs. Which area of photography are you most interested in? From there, its easier for you to narrow down which lens to go for. That way, no need to waste money on things you dun need.

I am thinking of a 70mm-200m i guess. Cause seems like buying the other will have overlapping too much.

Intent to use on streets and sometimes to capture something not so accessible for me.

There are lots of range that is not so accessible to you. So it depends on what you are shooting that is not accessible to you.

A good compliment to your 17-50mm is what crystal recommended.

How big is the 70-200? (not a canon user) Don't think it's advisable as a street lens if it's too big...

Depends on which one, the f4s are smaller than the f2.8s
But I think both attracts the same attention to passerbys haha. Maybe he meant something more low profile than the 70-200.

So a technically sound review under controlled conditions is less valuable than some comments of people you have never seen, let alone know what they do with the lens what style of shooting they have? Yup, go and rent the lenses ..

with this lens you can definitely get a very close up of the moon!

don't think any camera manufacturer with such a focal length

If u need to stealthily shoot, longs lens expose u as you look prominent, short lens can't give you reach. But how people get good shots? The answer is 厚脸皮 (thick skinned) :p
