Do I buy this lens or should I just opt for a recently manufactured copy?

I'd take the deal...

This lens really sings when you get it right, amazing for its zoom range and unique to Canon at the present time I think.

For a moment there I thought this was someone eating their words..........   ;)

It's odd how much the bokeh rendition and color from this lens reminds me of the 135L in certain situations.

6D with the 70-300L in London, snapping The Shard

This is a 5 shot vertical stitch at f/8.  I am amazed at the sharpness!

That is very cool shot, and nicely executed.  70-300L is a very sharp lens.  One of Canon's hidden gems, to be sure!

Thanks Dustin,  this is a fantastic lens and one which will get a lot of use.  I am sure that at certain focal lengths it is better than the equivalent primes.

I have this lens and I read that the Canon Extenders will not work with the lens.

Question is, is there some other extender I can use with this lens and get good results ?

Thanks.

I've used the Kenko 1.4x 'Pro 300' version perfectly fine. Most of the Kenko range should fit, but that's the only one I've experienced.
AF doesn't really happen at 300mm in dim light on my 7D, but in bright light it's fine. IQ doesn't take much of a hit at all (to my eyes)
Too much gear, too little space.

+1.  I've been pleasantly surprised with the IQ from this combo.

This lens has also produced some great landscape shots for me, too.
