which 70/75-300 lens would be better? the canon one or the sigma? (id of thought canon as the camera is canon)

and has anyone use either of these websites before? or recommend me any cheaper websites.

cheers matt

LENS - no 'e' at the end

I would have thought the Canon, but you'd be much better off searching a camera/photo forum like TalkPhotography than post here TBH.

Neither is stabilised. I am only assuming the canon isnt a usm, neither the sigma a hsm. All in all I cant see there being much in it, if there is it will be minimal. Id prob go canon.

How can you justify that canon are way better? Sigma have been in the business for years.

Did you get it from Jessops in the end?

Do you have any pictures uploaded with it yet?

Cheers for the link
