I have a canon 30d (just new into canon cameras) I have been offered a canon et-74 200 mm ultrasonic, is this compatible with my camera and are there any pitfalls, ie is it auto focus or manual, Hope someone may be able to help.

It will work and be autofocus. All Canon EF lenses work with all Canon EOS film & digital cameras.

ET 74 is the hood serial number for a 70-200mm lens.....!!!

Chances are your looking at a 70-200mm Lens, Probably an L, Fitted with an ET 74 hood.

? Is this lens a light grey in colour....? ? ?

Canon don't make a 74-200 lens...are you sure you have the right details? The only ET-74 reference they have is for a lens hood.
As far as I am aware, the only 75-200 lens they produced is an FD mount, which won't fit current bodies....make sure you get the details correct before you think about buying it. You need to make sure it's an EF mount.

It's a great lens in my opinion but read the reviews in the link. It will fit your camera definitely. Check it works, isn't scratched, isn't stolen.
