It's amazing how close the 70-300L comes to the 70-200 f/2.8 IS II, something I had never expected or even dreamed of until I started using it.

I remember getting flamed for questioning just how much better the 70-200 f/2.8 IS II could be after shooting with the 70-300L. Glad to see my suspicions confirmed.  ;)

The comparison holds true, however that's at comparative apertures. Obviously the 70-200 has its advantages in a certain focal length range ;) In any case there's reason enough for me to own both of these lenses (and a 100-400L).

5 - 100-400mm

Hey TomScott,
Not sure if you are already on your 6 month trip or not, but I thought to suggest you the Canon 200mm f2.8L II. It won't zoom like the 70-...'s but it's small, lighter and pretty good.

For traveling you DON'T NEED TO cover every millimeter IMHO.

Cheers
