Congratulations!
love to get that lens. Justification more the problem than money.
Is it a good lens for new born baby pics??? :-) if so I have three months to save....

For new born, 50L, 85L II and/or 135L on FF will be great

It's going to be a long weekend

Congratulations Dylan!  You will absolutely enjoy that lens!  Like others and myself have said, it is one of the most versatile, since it accepts the 1.4x and 2x converters very very well!  If I could just keep one big white, it would be the 300mm II. 

Enjoy and upload some photos for us!

Regards,
Jason
Thanks jason.
I selected free shipping option.  The lens will be here next week. Will post some photos.

YEAP :-\....according to the tracking number, the lens should arrive on wed, 27th. I will take a day off to welcome new baby ;D

BTW...What's billmelater?

I am more impressed with how you managed to conceal $6000 in a separate account from your spouse! Nice, but how will you explain it when it turns up at the door??

I know if I tried to hide something that big from my girlfriend she'd prob beat me over the head with the lens! I already suspect she thinks I love my camera gear more than her! Sssshhhh!  ;)

Anyway, congrats on your first great white! One day I'll actually get to use one!!!

You can always pickup the package at your nearest UPS/Fedex location etc...they will notify you when it ready.Trust me...this is not the first time I done that ;D

I don't have fixed income. I'm import/export electronic components, therefore, the wife doesn't have control of it. Besides, I thought we "the man" suppose to be the BOSS at home ;D  JK

I'm just wondering why the invoice doesn't show a tele-extender or two?

As I mentioned, my photography account(account that the wife doesn't know) has about $12 left.

4% reward X $6000ish = $200plus will go to x2 TC III ;)
Dylan you only live once just go out shoot, shoot, and shoot until your heart is content. If I was you I'll be out finding many different ways to use that wonderful piece of glass you just acquired. Happy shooting and Merry early Christmas to you!!!!

Thanks ewg963.

With 2 kids(2 & 5yrs), I'm fully booked with family activities. I'll take your advice will do some shooting soon.

Happy thanksgiving & early Merry Christmas to you too ewg963 ;)

Good for you Dylan.  I have had mine now for a few months.  (I previously owned the first IS version of this lens.)  I have to say the new 300 is quite possible the finest piece of glass I have ever owned.  It's a great lens and works remarkably well with both the 1.4 and 2.0x TC III's.    Enjoy.

Thanks Canon1. This is my 1st BIG WHITE. To be honest, it's not easy to spend $6000ish on a single lens, especially photography is just a hobby. I don't have much experiences with BIG WHITE lenses, but I rented this lens last week, man, I'm hooked.

Congratulations Dylan, Lovely Lens.

I suggest you get the 1.4x VIII Converter first, almost no perceptible loss in IQ on this Lens (420@f/4), the 2x although Good, is not without some IQ loss, acceptable, but not perfect, certainly not as good as the 600f/4 II @ f/5.6, but not much is.

Look forward to seeing some Images from this truly wonderful Lens when you get the time, enjoy.

Thanks eml58. I might get both TCs by then.

PS. I saw your photos in 1D X thread - AWESOME photos.

Now that you are part of the Great White club, time for Canon to come out with V III with built-in 1.4 extenders.  I have the 200-400 and the built in extender is great.  Wish my new 600 had it ..

 ;D ;D ;D

Congrats man! Makes me get back the feeling when I bought the mk1 a few years ago, one doesn't really know sharpness (and into the corners) before owning one of these beasts. Seriously happy with the 200 f2 also.

Thanks

I haven't hand-on 200mm f2 yet(will try to keep my hands off, otherwise you know), but I haven't heard one bad thing about that lens at all. I saw the photos you took with 200 f2 AWESOME.

I need little more reach, therefore, 300mm works better for me.

After this purchase, I have about $12 left in my photography

Time to shoot some random teams on the fields and sell the photos to the coaches!  Congratulations on the purchase.  So jealous!

Thanks Random Orbits

One step at a time. I started with just used 40D + 50mm f1.4 + 17-55mm f2.8 IS and that was 5yrs ago. Just put some $ on the side ;)

Congrats, Dylan!

I recently rented a 500 version II, and was blown away by the photos I got. I'm sure you'll enjoy your 300!
Thanks.

I'm going to skip 200-400 and go straight to 800mm ;D

Don't bother, unless they release a MkII (which I expect they will).  Get the 600 II instead - the 600 II + 1.4xIII is sharper, longer and lighter.  Same for the 600 II + 2xIII vs. 800 + 1.4x.
After this purchase, I have about $12 left in my photography account. Not family account.
