Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS USM

ef300mmf_4_1_
Review Date: Mar 3, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $500.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Not as Heavy as people say, built in hood, great minimum focal length, works great with 1.4tc
Cons:
Nothing.

I do have the 100-400L also and I see this lens compared to it all the time. Somone stated below that the 100-400L focuses just as fast as the 300mm with the TC but it isn't true. I tend to like my 300mm a bit better than the 100-400 but somtimes like the versatility of the 100mm range of the 100-400mm. the 300mm does focus faster with the TC. The difference witht he 300mm and the 100-400mm with the TC is that with the 300mm you don't have to tape any pins and still have all 9 of the AF points to use. the 1.4tc on the 100-400 you have to tape the first 4 pins to get autofocus and you are limited to only the center AF point to focus.
