Angle Zoom Lens

Angle Zoom Lens
Need a good (and affordable) Canon wide-Angle Zoom Lens?

My brother and I looking to replace a lens for my fathers Canon DSLR as a present. I know he needs a new wide-angle zoom lens since his Sigma one broke and doesn’t focus anymore. Its a 17-35mm if I remember correctly and I don’t think it had a very low f-stop, maybe like 4 or something.

I am looking for a good replacement that is comparable and I don’t want to spend much more than $300 (I know low budget), except obviously it needs to be reliable. I would prefer to avoid Sigma, but if its my only option its still ok.

Another possibility is a 70-300mm telephoto. He always complains about how slow the focus is on his current one.

Hmmm you’re not going to get too much name brand for $300. The cheapest option is the 18-55mm IS lit lens, but he probably already has that. You could also see if you can get a used Canon 17-85mm for that price. The next step up would be the 17-40mm L for $600. Also, the Canon 70-300mm costs about $600.
