    Hello!

    Please help me making a choice:

    What should I buy for my EOS 300D?

    A) Canon EF-S 75-300 III USM

    or

    2) Tamron AF 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 LD Macro Autofocus

    ?

    Pro/Cons?


    Moreover, I'd like to add either an EF-12 or an EF-25,
    what difference is there between the two? Maybe they are
    discountinued, since I cannot find their specifications.


    Thanks a lot!!

    It was also posted to rec.photo.misc, but has no replies. I guess there's
    no harm in covering all of one's bases! ;-)

    What is it with the questions about Tamron lenses these days? I made the mistake
    of letting myself get talked into a couple of Tamron lenses. To make a long
    story short they are the biggest pieces of junk lenses I ever made the mistake
    of buying.

  5. Couldn't comment on a Tamron Zoom, but I have the 90mm Macro amd it is
    wonderful. Mind you ther aren't any non-Canon zooms that I have been
    remotely tempted to buy.
