I was going to suggest the Bigma, but I guess it's a joke?

I hope you have your thread closed for pointlessness.

PS. hovering over the thread title brings up the first few words. I'd suggest 100-400L.

Why? For the 4x zoom? Or because it's a longish lens? Not that I don't want one. ;)

The 18-200mm is an 11x lens. From pretty wide on a crop to 320mm FoV. But, it's slow. :)

Oh, you darn kids and your lack of 'stupid humor'.

And that's 4x :)

Ask them to put the Hubble on Ebay with a Buy-It-Now so you can get 8% back from live.com cashback.

Even if you get the Hubble for FREE, I bet the cost of an EOS adapter will be quite significant;)
