    What brand is it? From the specs there it sounds like the Canon 75-300?

    BTW, this post maybe better suited in the Aviation photography forum .

          Clovis, you have SERIOUS competition for your lense. Lower yours to $10 and I might consider it, even though I don't have a DSLR yet... :P
