Hello everyone
I just bought a used CANON EOS ELAN ll FILM CAMERA.
I have been looking for lenses on ebay.
I have seen a few and read their reviews.
Thought i could ask some canon users their opinions.
Sigma 28-135mm f/3.8-5.6 aspherical IF macro lens
Canon EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 ll usm lens
Canon EF 28-90mm f/4-5.6 lens
Would love to have IS lenses but they are very costly.
I plan to shoot a variety of places, indoors-parties and portraits, outdoors-events,lanscapes etc.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your input.
Pete

Oops for got to ask
Is there a significant difference between a Canon lens made in Japan band others made in Taiwan, Malaysia etc etc.
Is the canon ef 28-135 mm usm lens any good?

If you're not planning to use flash for the indoor parties, you might want to look at faster primes - 35 f/2, 50 f/1.8, 85 f/1.8 - rather than zooms.

Thank you for your response EWOK. I do intend to use the built in flash for indoor shootingat least until i get an external flash. I basically need an all-round lens to start with.
