Re: Upgrading T2i (550) - Committed to Canon

Interesting. I'm in pretty good shape and go on hiking trips. But I'm not as strong or as steady as I used to be.

I recently purchased a 70-300L hoping to be able to carry it and use it hand-held. I should have it in a couple of days.

I used one several times at a camera store (they sold theirs before I could buy it and haven't replaced it yet so purchased from B&H) and while much heavier than either my 55-250 or 15-85 I'm hopeful that I'll do ok with it.

I did some test between the 70-300L and 55-250. I believe the 55-250 is front-focusing but it'll cost more than the lens to correct. The 70-300L was sharp full tele and wide open. But it's the weight that I have to overcome.

If it becomes a real issue I'll start using a monopod.
