Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS USM

ef300mmf_4_1_
Review Date: May 11, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,300.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: LIGHT WEIGHT (compared to my old 100-400 street sweeper). I like the retractable lens hood. FAST FOCUS. This lens will suit me well for portraits in the field, as well as street action scenes and the artsy things one can do with wide open aperture.
Cons:
Not an f2.8 - but then again I was not willing to fork over another $3,000.

This lens, with its 2-stop IS and super fast focus, is hand-holdable. (The first thing I did was take off the ring mount.) The build is solid, and the glass is very nice. A keeper in my good-glass inventory.
