Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L USM IS mk II

Just got the lens a few moments ago and went outside. Nothing special yet but I'm on the way to a local park to get some wildlife.

What's the point of those "unboxing" videos? Could be no less interesting...
I'm more interested about sample photos, so would you please take some? :P

Some of us know that we will never be fortunate enough to own one of these beauties, so we have to live vicariously through the unboxing videos of those who do own them.:)

Waahhoo! After 205 days, my Canon 300mm 2.8L IS mkII has arrived and after some quick fresh out of the box samples, it was worth the wait. I still need to get some free time to dial it in (Micro-Adjust) and see how it performs with the Canon 1.4x mkIII and 2x mkIII teleconverters. Let me know what you think.

Note: I apologize for the double post, but figure these samples could be useful to others here in the Lens Archive.

Here are some quick samples of the new Canon 300mm 2.8L IS mkII with the Canon 1.4x mkIII teleconverter. All images are handheld and the light was inconsistant (partly cloudy). I'll post the 2x mkIII shots in a few days. I wish I had more time to pay attention to the AF performance with vs without the TC's... maybe another day. Let me know what you think.

I'll try post about the AF performance with vs without the TC's at a later date after. As for image quailty, I'm very satisfied with each of the TC's on this lens. However, let me know your thoughts on it.
