I have one I have been using with my 6D for a while (a fine combination) and it seems to work well on the 5 also, no reason it shouldn't! I like this lens a lot. The IS and the higher ISO capabilities of the FF don't seem to penalize the lack of an f2.8. Great lens and not too bulky or heavy and the additional near focus ability is a plus. Also I like black "L" lenses way better then the "whites"....:)

Yeah, totally agree, especially about the white lenses.

Nothing that a lens coat can't solve ߙ°ߙ°ߙ plus it provides protection against scratching- black or white.

A lens coat is definitely not the answer.

Oh, I got ya. Yes, there have been a few times that I wished that the 70-200 lenses came in black versions.

I bought a camo lens coat with my 500mm many years ago. The cover has never come off that lens. Probably looked a bit funny when I took it to non-wildlife events (kids' sports, air shows, etc.) - might have even been more conspicuous in those settings than had it been left white :)

I dont think a coat on a prime or 70-200 is too bad, but not on a 70-300L. Ive seen images of this and it looks terrible.
For me its just not wanting to attract any more attention than i have to. I live in an area that attracts a lot of tourists and i prefer to blend in, as it also attracts more undesirables (and security staff who keep telling me no professional photography allowed). Ive heard the arguments why these lens are white but if Nikon/Sigma/Tamron can do it.......

Thats what i shoot with, the 300 F2.8 IS II, add on a 1.4 or 2x teleconverter and theres really no loss in IQ. I shoot baseball and football when i need the 2.8 then add on the 2X tele and cover airshows. THe 400 would be nice but i couldnt justify the extra $, and for what i paid for this, its quiet a bit. Lol

Another to consider is the Canon 400 DO II f4. The lens is about the same size as the 300 f2.8 but half a pound lighter.
And you get 400mm with out the need of an extender.

I rented the 400 DO II twice for air shows. It's IQ and AF performance is on par with my 300 f2.8 II, with & without extenders.
A fantastic lens, me thinks.

Put on the 1.4xIII and you get a poor man's 500 f4...560mm f5.6 actually. But it's smaller, lighter, and less expensive than the 500 f4.

Friend of mine's mustang. He has actually sold it although he has a couple of more. This thing held the pro street world record for a good while. Over 3k HP.
