Christmas 2000 I gave a 100-400L to my wife.

She needed something bigger? :lol:

My first L was my 70-200 f/2.8L II. I really didn't sacrifice anything to get it...I just bought it because I wanted it and I had the cash available to do so. :p

I bought a secondhand rebel XT in June of 2009, and got my 100-400L in August of 2010. Traded a gun for it, and trust me I got the better end of the deal!

My first L was the 28-70 f2.8, it is a stunningly good lens and I can see me getting rid of it. Not sure what the gap was between getting a DSLR and an L probably a couple of years but since getting my first a few more have found their way into my camera bag!

First was the 100-400 when I bought the 40d 10-22 17-55f2.8 and 70-300, as I thought the extra reach could be useful
Was really impressed 2 years ago when got 7d and 70-200Lf4is
But, the one that blows my mind time after time is the 70-200f2.8mk2 which just about lives on my 5d3 especially for Motorsport

Could do with extra reach and not convinced the 100-400 is up to the task yet??

First L lens was a 70-300
Bought it for a first reason "This has a much better reach than the 70-200 and I'm not using TCs"
then I should've get the tamron instead :D

BUT now I have a better reason "Superb IQ for compact size"
