Hi, wondered if you guys could help me.
I am using a 7d, and am looking to get a telephoto zoom to be used in a couple of different scenarios. I had been leaning towards the 70-300 given all the positive reviews, however I am going to be using it to take photos while hunting and wondered if it would be fast enough. Especially when duck shooting ie low light situations and shooting on driven pheasant days ie very fast subjects on close to full zoom.
Please let me know your thoughts. I obviously know the benefits of the 70-300 when it comes to weight/price/size but happy to pay up to get the right lens and am worried about having a variable aperture and not being able to stop down to 2.8.
Thanks in advance
