I guess I can't be of any help to you right now. I'm ordering a 300 2.8 II today ...

The only way to cure the "GAS" is go bigger and faster or STOP visit CR site ;D

I'm getting a battery grip for one of my 5D III, since I can't afford 1D X.

Congrats JR

It's a beautiful day in California, I'm going to test drive my 300mm f2.8 IS II at local zoo today.

No more visit local Sony Store until Jan 2014 ;D

Thanks Dylan and all the best with the new lens. Waiting for the pics.

Cheers...  J. R.

Wait...  I have an idea.

Why don't you tell your wife about all this stuff you are buying?  She will put a stop to it!

WARNING : your wife may hit you over the head with one of your bigger lenses if you heed my advice :D

Oh, the gear I could buy if I didn't talk myself out of it ...

I'm looking forward to (hoping for) the actual release of the 100-400 II; I want to snap one of those babies up, and pretend it's a 200-400!

I was very happy with myself when I got my new 70-200 2.8 ii for <$1800 recently after rebate.  Still really feeling the love after a 300 f/2.8ii rental, I set a notification for that lens on the ongoing Black Friday sale and missed it for $4900-something TWICE because of a little something called employment getting in the way of constant email surveillance.  That's probably a good thing.  I could rent this lens lots of times and still spend less than a purchase (don't discuss rental $ versus purchase $ , please).

Now, I wake up to that $750 after rebate deal on the 100 Macro L f/2.8 IS at BuyDig.  The temptress got me again!  So now, another shining Canon box will head my way next week.  I think I need to stop even looking.  I need some sort of therapy, but that's been posted here before........

Hey JPAZ,
I hate this lens ;D

This is a great lens, and I've considered it BUT somehow taking such a big lens to the local zoo (where it will be used most of the time in my case) seems like a lot of overkill and limitation due to the fixed F/L Besides, it would draw a lot of attention. I even get that sometimes with my 100-400 or 70-200. As I've mentioned before I do have an itch for the 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | S. It's big, too but at least its black and can zoom. Maybe that would be something for me to consider  ;D
