That was very informative.
I don't have a weather-sealed body so I might seriously consider the Kenko then.
One question, though: Can you tell me when you most use the 200-300mm range in case of the 70-300L? Zoo, for one, makes sense. Anything else?
Outside sports if I know I'll be far away (i.e. from the stands and outside) and travel. The 70-200 is a better portrait lens and sports lens and for lower light situations. The 70-300L delivers similar IQ but in a smaller and lighter package. The lower weight and compact size is nice when travelling with small kids because it hangs from a BR strap more comfortably than the 70-200 (when locked in its shortest position) and its smaller size (mainly length) means I can use a smaller camera bag (i.e. Tamrac Velocity 7) rather than using a much larger bag to accomodate the length of the 70-200.
