So, I was sitting watching some birds building a nest last night in our Boojum tree and thinking about getting out the 100-400 to try to get a decent shot in the backlit dusk and simultaneously goofing around online. I log into canonpricewatch.com and see this ridiculous price for a 300 f/2.8 ii. You know the lens I rented last fall and fell in love with and put myself on a watch list for a good refurb price and have since wondered about?
And then the "GAS" attack hit me. How could I avoid that price for a new one with a Canon Warranty? About 5 minutes later I received my email confirmation even though the sun had passed its useful moment and the nest was now in the dark, but I didn't mind. I guess I will need to figure out what to use to pay for it, but I will manage.
Guess I'll be looking at a 2xTC soon. Anyone want to buy my 100-400?
Congratulations JPAZ, what a great deal you just got!
The 300 is an amazing lens and you are going to love it.
