In this thread I have put some samples ...

And since I got an AF confirm chip with trapping function, I even tried some sports !!!

.. Actually I really like to have a 500mm in my pocket :lol: .. 5DMKII+ 24LII+85LII+500/8 for travelling is perfect for me :cool:

Hmm, I just need a clarification here, were the pics in the direct links to your libraries (not the one to the other thread), taken with the 70-300 DO, or with another lens?

My samples concerned the question about my use of the mirror lens ..

with 70-300 DO these were my samples

I have thought about getting this lens for travel, really which would be better, this or the Tamron VC 70-300?

I like mine. Image quality is good enough for me, and it's portable :) Very portable for a 300mm lens.

Cardinal shot @ 300mm

Test shot for image quality at 80mm f8 ISO 100 with a 7D. Same image cropped below for detail. Note detail of wood grain, screws and rosin dust.

My conclusion: It is a fine lens, just different. Photographers should judge lens quality based on their particular needs, style of shooting and tastes.

I'll probably never knock the 70-300 on quality, but the Tamron has a nice price and the vibration control may be a newer generation than that of the DO. Personal taste and size of your wallet should determine which serves you better.

On the mid-to-long end, 120mm and 300mm, with a T4i in good and bad lighting, it's surprising what results the DO can give.

The shot in good light, 120mm, ISO 800, f5 @ 1/160s, cropped 50 percent.
The shot in dark blue light, 300mm, ISO 5000, f5.6 @ 1/400s. Take a look at the braid in the hat.

Who would be foolish enough to shoot in theatrical light, handheld, with such a slow, low contrast lens?

Truly, there is very little love for this lens. Thursday, 17 April 2014. Sandhill Crane chick near DeLand, Florida. With Canon 70D at 300mm.

Who knows if anyone will see this:

Sony A7 II, Metabones IV adapter with latest firmware, Canon 70-300mm IS DO. Whole image and crop. A stunningly sharp combo.

Back again. I guess it's just me that loves this light and versatile lens.

Had this lens. It was alright. Especially for its size.

how do you like it? hows the AF on a7 series?

I was thinking about getting one of these as a lighter alternative to my Sigma 150-600 sport.

I'm not sure about giving up the reach of the 150-600. But it is a handier lens for walkaround. AF is OK, not great. It takes a second to get the first subject in focus, but transition to the next is fairly fast. Indoors a dark subject may not focus, but given a little light it will do OK on a7II. Unless some improved adapter comes along, I would use manual if I were concerned with focus accuracy and I would not go to it for sports. I'm still a Canon guy there.
