    Check on the dpreview.com forums (Canon SLR lens).
    The 80-200f4.5-5.6 non-USM is termed the "pocket rocket"
    while the 90-300 is the "plastic piston" :-) Two of the
    gurus (Petteri and Adam-T) there have discussed the merits
    of both. The upshot seems to be that, for the same price for
    both non-USM versions, the 80-200 is optically better but
    the 90-300 has more reach (doh!). Other things to think
    about are the filter size, weight and length for your
    pack/pocket.

    Seriously though, look for the little compact 80-200. Try for the USM if you
    can find it. Far better than the new 90-300.

    I can get you a second hand one for $200 plus postage, non-usm

    I'll see how I go - I'd like a bit more reach than that, ideally.

    I just can't get past that 200 doesn't seem all *that* much longer
    than the 135 on my 28-135...

    Cheers,

    I've got an EF 75-300 non USM, non IS, and despite the drubbing it
    gets on lens review sites, I get some great shots with it... you just
    have to use it like a long lens, rather than a point and shoot zoom...

    Cheers,
