Hi

After lots of discussions on tyis forum and other forums and after reading leading reviews about Canon 300/2.8 L IS series lens, finally I decided to go for it.

My Lens is on its way and expected to reach me by next week..

will post my sample images with the lens soon.

I'm sure you will love the lens. From the images i have seen on the lens sample archive on this forum you will no doubt love it. It seems it handles TC's quite well also.

I wish it was me posting this thread :) :(

Congrats

Thanks Neily and others who gave their valuable suggestion in another thread on 300/2.8 or 500/4

LightRules, I've ordered new lens.

Delish. :D

Make sure to smell and lick the lens right after pulling it out of the Samsonite case it comes in :lol:
