Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS USM

ef300mmf_4_1_
Review Date: Sep 17, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,624.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Really sharp even wide open, Light weight, image quality, built in hood, IS, beats 100-400 hands down.
Cons:
haven't found any.

Sold my 100-400 to buy this and boy am I pleased I did. 2 lenses in one with my 1.4x extender and no discernable loss of image quality. Its lightweight make it easy to carry around for long periods and the built in hood is great at saving space in my AW Photo Trekker. Excellent build quality, if you need a 300mm with IS, go for this. My first pic with this lens.

Pros: Image quality, Build quality, usability and price.
Cons:
None !

My first 'L' glass lens and i'm impressed to say the least.I will never look back now, in fact i'm already saving up for my next 'L' lens possibly the EF28-300 f3.5-5.6 LUSM IS which should go well with my 17-40 'L'.
