Whats the weight difference like Charlie? I assume the Contax is heavier. This whole time I thought you had the Canon 100-300!
hard to tell a difference, the 70-300 is a little hard to fit into the bags I have since it's a little fat fella, but they weigh similar. I've had the canon 100-300L in the past, it cant compare to either frankly.
both are big lenses
70-300g = 861g/1lb 14oz
100-300 + adapter = 1000g/2lb 3oz
you pick them up one by one, both are heavy lenses, the differences harder to tell weight wise. With the contax being so skinny and long, it's easier to bring in and out of my bags, but at the same time, absolute limit in length. Was afraid it might be too long (I should have checked last time I bought one ).
will probably do some shots on friday. Contax looking very favorable at this point, was viewing my test chart for good measure, and it's good, very high sharpness wide open (maybe oof for testing?). Hopefully I can get out this weekend to evaluate more carefully.
