For the money, you can't beat the versatility.  If you get your hands on a good copy, you'll be thoroughly impressed!  There isn't another lens around that can give you both wide aperture telephoto AND zoom versatility (ok, maybe the 200-500 f/2.8, but let's be reasonable.  It'll be a cold day you know where before someone posts images from that lens here).

Really like what I see here. Did you use your 5D Mark II body for these pictures?
>> Considering the 120-300OS for my fullframe, but still think it costs some serious dosh... might go for a non-OS variant for about half the money if it performs equally :)

NOTE from MOD: Post moved from EF 300mm f/4L IS gallery (best to keep all images in lens gallery topics to that lens).

I looked at this but instead went with the Sigma 120-300mm 2.8. It is very sharp.

 With the 2x Converter remains sharp, retains auto focus and becomes 240-600mm f5.6.

The first image at 600mm. Shot from over 230 meters away on a 5D3
