Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS USM

ef300mmf_4_1_
Review Date: Apr 30, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Build quality, speed of AF, sharp as a tack, IS makes shutter speeds as low as 1/50 possible with practice, not too heavy, great contrast
Cons:
Nothing as yet. Well apart from the prices here in the UK

Bought second-hand in mint condition from a UK seller. Hence the high price paid compared to US versions, (though a fair price for the UK market).

Short version:
I love this lens!

This is my first prime lens and also the first time I've used IS. So for me parting with cash was a bit of a gamble. All I had to go by was examples found on this forum and the reviews you'll no doubt read below.

IS is a great feature. I took several pictures today with ISO 200, f8, 1/50 of a second shutter speed. No way could I have done this without the IS.

I very much doubt I'll part with this lens unless of cause I need money to buy a new liver or lung.

It's an L lens so it's very high quality.
It's a prime so it's very sharp.
It has got IS so you can use it in poor light conditions

What more could you possibly want for that kind of money?
