Michael, I have both lenses and use the 70-200 f4L IS most of the time; both bare and with the EF 1.4 II T/C. The 300 f4L IS comes into play when I'm shooting outdoor kids and other sports, landscapes when called for, but as of this year I've been experimenting with Canon's 12 and 25mm extension tubes also.

Both lenses respond well to the 1.4x II T/C, I've not tested or own a 2x T/C. IQ wise I don't see much loss with either lens, except some softness in the corners. But AF does slow down a bit, it's not horrible, is usable, shooting bare is best tho.

While I like the 300 a lot, the 70-200 is used the most, it and my 100 mac are probably used for 80% of my shooting...when a bit more reach is required the 300 bare or with T/C is a nice to have

Below are 3 shots from the 300 on a 40D, a 12mm extension tube was used on all shots, they are handheld as well, there was good late afternoon light to help with higher shutter speeds. I can post some bare and 1.4x shots with the 70-200 if you like.

Wow Jefferson, absolutely killer images, love them all, the racing shots are yummy as always.
That old tech 5Dc is mighty fine in the right hands
Of the set it's the motorcycle that steals the show, great monochrome look to it...fantastic!
Must be so sweet to have RA as your playground, that's quite the road course!

Nice sets Jerry & Jefferson!!! Jerry, I like your take on nature.

























Was planning to sell mine after picking up the 70-300L, but I'm not sure if I really want to. It was a lot of fun last summer.

I know I have a few of flowers with a 12mm tube, and I looked, but I couldn't find them just now... these were all with a 1D IV, I'm pretty sure.

Oops... not so.

Really nice set Michelle, the 1st horse shot; with rider is pure magic
I can understand your hesitation to sell, even tho I rarely use the 300, with tubes it really shines, not that it doesn't as a tele or even with T/C.

As for my view on nature, thank you

So many wonderful moments in 40+ yrs of wondering about shooting most anything, I tend to look for odd things, break the rules whenever possible; what rules?! I do need to get out my backyard and neighborhood more, in due time I'll bring more of SoCal to FM...need to put that 17-40L through it's paces; film n digital. I've a cheapo 24-85 that serves well, but now with the ultra wide my EOS-3 and Velvia will be brought out for some eosfilmfun

Hope you are well!
Jerry

I've really enjoyed using the 300/4IS for the last 8 or so years. I've found it to be a very sharp, light and flexible lens that takes a 1.4x TC very well.

The 300 F4 IS, has to be my favorite lens...

Here are a few of the hummers from my backyard...he usually sits in the near by tree to guard his feeder of 2 yrs...the last 2 nights he has had a visitor trying to take it over....not without a fight. In turn grabs on too the feeder..1st photo posted in "Autumn" Thread.

All taken with 300mm F4 IS
plus a kenko tube 12mm..iso 1250
I used flash (usually do not) yet almost dark...also...shot raw, cropped in 31 percent...I was close up.

first is not as sharp...yet still like it...hind site should have used higher iso...and where my glasses..lol.



























Thanks for looking...Terry~Happy Thanksgiving....

I like it, too! I was planning to sell it after getting the 70-300L also but it works so well with a 1.4x IMHO, and even a 2X will be fine, for non-critical images. It is such a convenient way of travelling with a 600mm, too

This is 600mm (300mm f4 + 2xmk2) with the 1DmkIV







And here are a couple of images with the bare lens, also with the 1DmkIV



















Cheers,
Eyvind
