Try right clicking to save the files to your hard drive.
How close do you want to bring far away subjects? The closer you want to bring them, or the further away they are, then you'll need a higher number focal length lens. For most, around the range of 85mm works well. If you're into nature photography, you'll need even more 'reach' than that. Uh... for many of us, money tends to limit our reach if you know what I mean. ;P

For better answers, you'll need to provide us with more information such as what's your subject matter?

This concludes how much I'm willing to try and advise right now. I'm still learning myself and I'm pretty sure I'm not so good at teaching what little I know right now.

No I understand what you saidand I know about the money end. I did try that right click and save the file to my drive but it still wont open, keeps going back to the window, "Do you want to open or save" Maybe something with a firewall or virus protection. I have a couple of pros that may be able to help me with that. My laptop does not do that, Than`ks for the reply, Pete

As pointed out in page 5 of the Instructions, the very first column, "Focal Length," carries this information.

Lenses that are for use with APS-C bodies only have a pale blue background. Using these lenses on full-frame or APS-H bodies will cause vignetting.

A note in the Instructions cautions that EF-S lenses cannot normally be mounted on cameras with EF lens mounts.

Posting is already done in Pekka's own thread in this section: Sticky: EF Lens Work III
