Looking for zoom lenses that go:

Up to 70mm
Up to 200mm
Up to 300mm

Bit of give and take on numbers, but around these lengths please!

Does not have to be Canon branded, just needs to work on the 7D

We have a canon 60mm f2.8 macro sat here doing nothing. Make a fair offer including postage and it's yours.

Actually, there's a sigma f5.6 400mm prime ( manual focus) and a sigma 15-30ex, you can have those for an extra £40 if of any use.

Allegedly the sharpest lens available for Canon crop sensors cheeky

Got an unused Canon 18-55 EF-S lens will sell for reasonable offer (and it is genuinely unused as it came with a 100D body I bought, but I only ever use the 40mm pancake lens)

I used to have the Sigma 15-30 and it was excellent - even on full frame.

On reflection, offering a couple of primes and a zoom, none of which match the criteria suggested probably want that helpful, however well intentioned!

Or you realised you'd just offered a bar of gold for the price of a bar of chocolate! lol

In a couple of weeks I plan on selling all my kit

I've got a 70 - 200 L F4
And a
17-40 L F4

That might be of some use. I've no idea what the wide angle lens would be like on a crop sensor.

May be a good idea to give an indication as to your budget.

The 70-200 f4 L & 17-40 f4 L are considered to be the best L series lens's for price/quality. The biggest problem with the 17-40 is barrel distortion, but this is minimized on a crop sensor. Both of these can be bought S/H in the region of £300-420, depending on condition (they will also hold their value well too).

The 17-40 will give a field of view similar to a 27-64 on a full frame, and the 70-200, 112-320

HTH

Thanks everyone, I've now got a tamron 18-200 f4, and a canon 18-200 l series 2.8

BUT, I am looking for a macro lens now! Can anyone help? Nothing fancy as macro will just be for playing with flowers etc, not for work
