Great idea for a thread.
I've been using a 500mm f4 for years. Late last year I acquired a 300 2.8, struggled a little at first with the lens. Now its become my favorite. This lens has made me mobile again, I can grab it be the foot, throw the TC's in the backpack and go, hike all day in the woods carrying it, easy to handhold. Tripod and monopod along with the 500 sits at home most days. The 300 2.8 is by far the most flexible lens I've used for wildlife. When the lights good I have a 1.7 on it, as the days light fades I move to the 1.4 and then bare 300. No other setup gives this kind of flexibility.
If you can't tell I'm loving 300 2.8
Heres a shot with a 1.4.
