Got my xs last dec. and my 100-300 5.6 L a few months later. I sold my 55-250 IS to get it, worth it IMO.

It was about 3 years after getting my Rebel XT that I bought my 70-200 f2.8L IS, I made sure to get my 5D Mark ii first! Basically bought it with some extra money from student loans, and paying for it now haha. Well worth it.

My first and only L lens so far is a 300mm 2.8 and I couldn't be happier with it.
It is an amazing lens!!!

I saved for 7 years to purchase it and don't regret saving for it. :D

My next L lens will be a bit more wide angle.

I bought my 100-400 along with my 50D, and have become somewhat addicted to "L" glass. My only two non-L lenses are my 50 1.8 and my old Canon 500 f/8 mirror lens that I permanently converted to EOS mount. The 300 2.8 "L" came along this summer, and all I can say is WOW. :lol: The build quality has been impressive, and the results obtained so far are better than I expected. I got what I paid for, and in this day and age, that's a surprise!


Canon 50D gripped, EF 50/1.8, EF-S 10-22, 17-40L, 24-105L, 70-200 f/2.8L, 100/2.8 macro, 100-400L, 300 2.8L, Canon 500 f8 mirror with chipped EF mount, 580EX, 1.4x and 2x Canon teleconverters, Canon EF Life-Size converter.
