Re: when new

T2875 is my most used lens on Kodak SLR/c. Th image quality is superb. If hand held, there is no need to go for any prime in its range. If you want better image quality, go for prime + tripod.

However, I find I'm more and more wanting a Canon 24-70 or a 24-105. When traveling, often 24mm is very desirable. Also, when tripod is not welcomed, IS is in need. I've tried Sigma 24-70 DG MACRO, but returned it for a serious focusing problem, also the image quality is inferior when shooting range is less than 3M.

The problem of canon 24-70 and 24-105 is the price.

As far as the plastic issue, I'd say don't worry. You need a very special working habit to make that a real problem. If you've really developed that habit, believe me, you'd have broken your camera(s) before broken the lens, yes, any modern digital camera.

By the way, get a 50mm/1.4 no matter what. You want the speed? you want the bokeh? That's the best answer.
