Thanks DARSON,
It took me 1.5yrs in saving to get this baby. It worth every penny.

I know some CR members recently purchased this lens. We going to see more great photos from them. Stay tune ;)

Thanks surapon,

Yes...I'm having a lot of fun last couple days.

Will use this lens again tonight, as my daughter performs her last time in junior ballet. She will be moving to next class, bigger kids.

Hi Dylan, well done, have a look at getting yourself a drop in Circular Polariser for the 300, it's not too expensive and is a huge benefit when shooting bright sunlight & especially green foliage.

I'm surprised, considering just how good this Lens really is, that the Thread for the Lens doesn't have more Posters showing Images from this possibly best ever Lens made by Canon.

Have Fun, look forward to seeing more from your current Lens Passion.

Duba Plains Lions, these amazing Animals are some of the only Lions that do all their hunting during the day, mostly using the water as a method of stalking & hunting their prey, and almost exclusively Hunt Buffalo. I've spent a week twice now at Duba, the 2nd fortunate to see these Lions make 2 Kills, unfortunate for the Buffalo of course.
