A few weeks ago someone inquired about the 300 2.8 manual and the conclusion was that it was not available online.

What is it you need to know? There's not much to it. The 300 f/2.8 and the 400 f/2.8, as well as the 500 and 600, all come with the same instruction manual.

That's the brochure, not the manual.

Se7enUK, I just noticed that my post above may be misinterpretted. So let me clarify it. If there's anything in particular you would like to know, I will be glad to look it up for you in my manual. :)

Its the focus settings on the actual lens, they are just numbers so I have not got a clue why you would use 1 or 2 etc.

All the buttons are self explanatory:

AF or MF (Auto or Manual)
Focus range switch sets distance range - 3m to infinity, 3m to 10m and 10m to infinity (most people will keep it on the first - lefmost - setting)
Focus Preset - Off, On and On with Tone. To set, press set button. To recall, twist knurled metal ring. More useful for wildlife than sport.
Stabilizer On/Of and Mode 1 or 2

Oh, the buttons on the end are to temporarily stop AF which will resume on half press of shutter.

There isn't that much to learn about the lens and about the only switch you may change is IS mode.

That's about it.
