I LOVE this lens! There are so many great shots in this thread it's mind-blowing for a newbie like me!
I'd love to share some of my shots with this lens but I'm having trouble with file size. Any help on resizing?
Wow, some of you live in gorgeous surroundings!
Miguel, those are beautiful shots!! Love the pepper.

^ get a flickr account, UL images there then share their large size using the BBcode sharing option.

Got the flickr account going, now to see if I can use it.
I love the lighting on this one, it's my daughter playing in the yard while I played with the camera.

This last one was taken by my wife from the left centerfield wall, 250' away and cropped a little in PP. My middle kid playing on our travel team.

This lens really loves bright sunlight and baseball/softball diamonds.

At the Iowa Cubs game last week, pulled up and shot, not bad but I wish I had their feet in the frame!:oops:

I got the tripod ring on ebay that Greg Basco of Deep Green Photography did. He mentioned it with a link in his Feb. 17th comment at the end of his excellent review of this lens:
http://www.deepgreenph​otography.com …70-300-mm-l-is-zoom-lens/ (external link)

The link that Greg provides will give several views of the mount.

Mine works quite well as Greg says of his. The paint color was a very near match. The paint flaked off a couple of small spots on the base part of mine. No biggie for me as I plan on painting mine a more natural color anyway.

About to start using a BlackRapid style sling with my tripod ring to carry my 70-300L on my 60D. The 1/4″ 20 thread in the base of my ring is countersunk (no thread) 1/8″ so that only a couple threads from the tripod quick connect plate engage the threads of the base. I took the screws out of the base to see how deep they went into the ring/clamp part. They were smaller than an 8-32 screw and less than 1/4″ deep. It may do fine on a balanced tripod mounting but I wouldn’t trust it on a sling with the potential added G’s and bouncing around. Had a machinist look at it and he agreed.
(I picked up a piece of 1/4″ stainless and replaced the base with the much stronger metal threaded flush with the bottom and attached with 8-32 screws that are 3/4″ long. Cost about $10 in material and a few hours labor. Still a bargan if you or a friend can do the mod.) The stainless increases the weight a bit but I feel it's worth the added security.

Mine is on its way! Sadly I will have delivery issues since a sig is required at delivery...hopefully I can work it out and don't have to wait an extra day or something.
