I just posted my first follow up field test at http://foto-gizmo.blogspot.com/2013/04/canon-70-300l-field-test.html

Thanks for looking.

With posts like this, FM is starting to look like a yahoo chat board.

I'm not trying to turn FM into a Yahoo chat board, I actually do not know what that is. If it wasn't for the size limitations and the number of images I could post, I would love to post a copy of the review here.

It's a great lens for it's price. I bought it for travelling a couple of months ago, because of it's small size. Here are a few portraits that I shoot last month.

I don't get it. A nice review. It may not be the review that you were hoping for but I am sure it helps some folks. Time to get off the soapbox.

Hi Aboud,

I actually find your reviews refreshing, they are short, of a very personal nature and usually contain a few gems of information that might help the inexperienced user of the subject gear. Often extensively long technical reviews don't offer up much more insight as there is more fluff regarding specification then there is actual hands-on in the field experience. Very little in life is 'perfect' all the time, we learn with every shot, every trip out to shoot. In your review your sharing the IS switch options issue and soft images is invaluable for the beginning photographer and a gentle reminder for us more experienced, seasoned, IS users.

Keep shooting, evaluating and reviewing the gear you use, and do continue to share with us your new experiences/techniques. For those that do not find your efforts worthy of reading, they should simply close their mouths much like their minds are.

I'll add one last thought before ending my comments. Given your reviews are short and direct, you might also consider writing something up in FM's gear review's section. Many contribute to this site not only through images, topics and reply's, but also through the 'gear' info sections. The menu at the top of FM pages/screens has an option for reviews, your experiences with gear could add another bit of information to the collective of reviews. Each of us experience gear individually, have different needs/wants and levels of expertise. Every review, small or extensive, adds to the knowledge base and thus contributes to FM's purpose of sharing, learning, inspiring.

Cheers,
Jerry

Most people would rather you post your findings here on the site, rather than link to your personal blog or whatever.
There are multiple reasons for this, but one for me is that at work, FM isn't blocked, but most blogs and personal sites are.

Thanks Jerry, for the encouragement and your kind comments, they are appreciated.
I'm trying to work on a short form review that I can post on FM with a reference to the longer reviews on the blog if people want to read them.

To the OP: nice shots and review, the cherry blossoms have been stubborn (or confused!) this year haven't they.

Did someone say Cherry Blossoms? They are at peak today. I went out at 6AM this morning to catch the 6:45 sunrise. There were about 4310 photographers with tripods. I guess the secret is out. Here are a few shots for you to enjoy.
