WOW.. everything seems to be fine... sharp, smooth bokeh, deep colors.
What body do you use ?

Thanks, all with my 60D!

That's good, a 300L non IS can be risky, because some samples need to get micro adjustment to get a fully functional AF.

Guess I got lucky then, my copy looks to be spot on. At worse I would have sold my 60D to get a 7D, no way I'll sell the lens!

Great shots! It is crazy how sharp it is at 2.8. Everytime I need to go 2.8, the "wow" factor really comes to life.

A couple from Formula Drift Palm Beach practice...

1. Not even really in focus, but I still like this one. Gives you a sense of the action....I think hahaha

Thanks! hahaha Its something Ive thought about especially how well the III version works. But those night shots were at ISO 3200 on a 1D Mark III and F2.8, I was beginning to run out of light hahaha Only thing left would be dropping my shutter speed but I was trying to keep it at 1/100th for a higher keeper rate. It would be something I wouldn't mind checking out, I think one of my friends has the 1.4xII :)

Very nice detail. Shots close to the ground give a very nice effect with this 300mm.
