Has any hobbyist regretted buying a “big white”?

We should call these lenses "great whites", lol.

I call the EF 70-200 MkII 'the Great White Father'...:rolleyes:

On the commercial shoots (and any other) my girlfriend is my assistant... I just tell her "grab my whitey!" and she knows what to go for :p

But now since I have two, I will have to be a bit more specific... So my 300 will now be considered the "Great White" while the 70-200 II remains the "whitey". Although I have debated on putting a transformers vinyl sticker on the hood of the 300 and calling it an autobot... :D

All the L's I have used (white ones) have been great lenses, but not all of them fit my needs or budget. If its a focal length you see yourself using for more than just a couple of years, then buying white makes long term sense.
