The stock clear filter holder at the back of the lens actually holds gels. I bought a sheet of .9 and .6 for about $5 and cut the right shape out.
That's what was used here.
I also have the screw-in filter holder which uses 58mm filters. There is not a front element filter available for these big lenses. Would be insanely expensive. (As if the lenses were reasonably priced!)

Ah okay, I understand now, thanks.

Thanks! And yours is cool! Looked through your other stuff and very impressed! If the plane shot was your first with the 300...just wait! Truly one of my fav lenses! And it takes the TC's very well!

So I freelance for the local paper here and they wanted me to cover a indoor basketball game. I figured sure I can try out my new lens... I mean I did get it for sports and stuff!

So here is the resulting image using the 300:

As you can see it's a really tight photo... The gym was extremely small and the only reason why I got this shot the way I did was because I was almost to the back wall on the other side, which allowed me to get this shot lol. And then I changed to my 70-200 for almost the rest of the match haha.

But hey at least it was fun to use! kind of lol.

Here's a few from chasing jets last two nights…
70D was the body. Really liking how light the setup is! Handheld these shots.

Also very good. I compare these though to the set with the 500mm f/4 you also posted. The 500mm set have the edge IMHO. Assuming you processed them the same that leaves the difference of cameras...:)
