I may decide to use 70-200mm f/2.8 L USM + a 2.0 extender to take wildlife and birding photography.

Canon 100-400mm is very good lens for people who take sport, wildlife and birding photography frequently. But i will waste much money if i buy it but don't use it frequently. If i already have 70-200mm f/2.8 (probably I will buy one by this summer), 70-200mm f/2.8 + a 2.0x extender will be good enough for people who don't take sport, wildlife and birding photography frequently? I hope so

Yes, I think that sounds like a logical thought process

This lens not perfect but it is good choice for not rich people (who don't have enough money to buy the IS II )?

If looking at a used copy of this lens, can someone direct me to a list of the more desirable date codes to look for?

I think the only drawback to this lens is lack of IS- for wildlife, that can be slightly limiting, as wildlife shooting often involves less-than-ideal lighting. The 2.8 aperture helps, but if you're going to be using a 2x (in your post above) you want to keep it at f/8: 5.6 really isn't that sharp. It maybe not quite as sharp as the IS mk2 version, but unless you're strongly pixel peeping I doubt you'll notice. I'll post a few samples in a sec.

I'd just say the newer the better- UB is 2013, UA is 2012, UZ is 2011, UY is 2010... etc.

First post in this thread.

I've had this lens for around 6 months now, impressed with it!

Finally got around to taking some shots with my 70-200 f/2.8 since I got it 3 weeks ago. I am in love!
