Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM

Review Date: Aug 9, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $3,700.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Quick focusing, tack-Sharp pics.......traded in my 300mm 4.0 and there is no comparison as to the quality of the 300 2.8 vs the 4.0.....Along with my 200 1.8, I have the two best sports lenses available.Put it on a mono-pod with a Wimberly Side-Kick and the weight-problem (??) is gone.....

For all the "steal me" comments regarding the lens case. The Lowepro Toploader 70W accomodates this lens and hood quite nicely.


Nothing that has not been said before...........Its just awesome. Not the needed length for true-birding.

As for the always-mentioned weight issue mentioned (actually this can be hand-held) my question is " aren't all quality primes in this length and higher, heavier than zooms?" Of course!
