Welcome to the club :cool:.
Mine is 25y/o I am really impressed that such lens can work so well after decades ! (I mean the AF is really fast and accurate even on a 5DMKII)

Picking up a 300mm f2.8 non-is of my very own tomorrow. I am literally chomping at the bit to go pick it up and can hardly sit still. I have dreamed of owning a 300mm f2.8 since I started shooting. It's just one of those "must have lenses" that everyone should own at least once.

Woo Hoo... WELCOME ABOARD!!! Time to go shoot @ surfers, now?!

I shared this with the Motocross thread so I figure you guys would enjoy it as well. First weekend with my 20 almost 21 year old 300mm. I am amazed at how accurate the AF is on this lens as well as the sharpness.

I remember why PM didn't go through... You have your PM settings to block any incoming messages... Let me know when you've changed that so I could reply to your inquiry... Thanks Benjamin!!!!
