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.TWI by Dustin Abbott said:petach said:
That is very cool shot, and nicely executed. 70-300L is a very sharp lens. One of Canon's hidden gems, to be sure!
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.AdamF said:

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)

The store has an unsold new copy of the lens from 2010 ( serial no. 72xxxxxxxx) which they will let me have at the old price but with full normal warranty from date of my purchase. It's a small but significant saving. I've tested the lens thoroughly and it's absolutely fresh, new and working perfectly.
Do I buy this lens or should I just opt for a recently manufactured copy?
