Well I just recently purchased a slightly used 100-400L from Surfkahakai and recieved it on Monday. I knew it was coming on Monday by the tracking info. So, while patiently waiting in my lazyboy for the post office to deliver my lens a fell asleep in my chair. I work the overnight shift, so I didn't go to bed cause I didn't want to miss the driver. Well I heard the knock on my door, and it scared the hell out of me, and I jump from my chair and banged my foor on the leg rest. I didn't think much of it other then it hurt alot. So two days of drueling over my new lens waiting for my first day off to go shooting, I am wondering my my foot still hurt so much. Well last night while at work, I had the exary tech shoot a quick picture of my foot. Turns out I now have a hairline fracture in my 5th metatarsal. Moral of the story, not only due L lenses hurt our wallets, but they can cause bodily harm.

P.S. The lens is still in perfect condition, and amazingly sharp based on the shots I have taken out my window.

As it's the lens I really wanna buy, I just hope this is not a general effect to all the new 100-400 owners :lol: Well, you have now a little bit more time to try your lens ;-)a

Sorry about that small toe Kinger. However, it does seem a small price to pay to have your 100-400.:D

Well yesterday I took out the new 100-400 to try and take some shots of the my local court house was originally built in the early 1800's and just recently remodeled to the original color scheme. (Had a unique pink bell tower). But once I started shooting the County Sherrif started questioning me, checked my ID the whole works. He said I can continue to shoot, but I felt frustrated, and my fun ruined. So on my way home, this little guy popped out of the woods to eat some worms and made my day.

Here is a link to the better of the shots I got from that day. These aren't the best composition, I was just trying to test the capabilities of the lens. Let me know if you think they are to the reputation of the lens.

Great story, great lens, great pictures!

Hope your foot feels better. I've broken toes, ribs, left wrist and nose. And I'm not accident prone. It's all good, as bones mend and lenses zoom. Yeah!
