Here are some Pictures from today's visit to the Palm Beach Zoo. I gotta say, i had a very hard time with this Camera although i will say it was more the lens than the Camera. I was struggling to get focus through the fence and it was driving me nuts. The focus would just wonder off and wouldn't lock on. The problem with the Palm Beach Zoo is there was too much Shade, I was constantly shooting over 2,000 + ISO and even with the 50mm at 2.8 i was still struggling ugh. Our Next visit is the Miami Zoo later this Month which is a much better Zoo and a lot more open.

Hey guys, Just received the 300 f/4 IS today (have a non IS I will be selling) and after 10-15 pictures I got a err 01 message, that the lens contact needed to be cleaned. I took it off, wiped it down and everything seems fine now but is that a known issue with these, or anything I should be concerned about? Never had a lens tell me that before.

Really torn between 300 f4 + my 1.4x III vs 400 f5.6

The reviews suggest the 400 is better, but so many awesome pics in here!

That's what I did. Thorough cleaning and crossed my fingers lol.

Got out to the park next to my house just before sunset to test it out. Not the best shot in the world but this is at 1/100 of a second on a 1DIII (so more like a 390mm reach). Never could have done this with my non-is version. Great!

Got to get out and test it a little more today, really great lens...until I got the err 01 code again! Looks like this one is going back, but I had fun before I put it away.
