The 120-300 is a great tool to get the photos I want. A few from the weekend :

Got some good use out of this lens today with the 2x at an airshow, really pleased with the results.

It's not as sharp as my old 100-400L was, but having 2.8 and the ability to do 600mm make up for that easily.

Should be taking delivery of the third lens next week (not new s model). First one I couldn't get any kind of consistent AF whatsoever. Second one would make loud noises and not AF at all. Hope #3 is the keeper. Seems like I'm getting all the returns... [Sigh] Wish I could afford the Canon.

Finally had the chance to use it, does anyone else have this problem with ghosting on overexposed points? If so what are you doing to prevent it?

Here's a 100% crop of what I am talking about:
QUOTED IMAGE

I'd have to see the original and a look at your exif data to get an idea of what might have happened. But I've not seen that on my copy.


Canons to the left, Canons to the right,
We hold our L glass toward the light,
Digitizing in a snap reflective glory
That will forever tell our imaged story.

I stopped it down to f/4 this past weekend and it seemed to eliminate that and get a nice bump in sharpness.

Still wondering if I should send it in for a tuneup.

My exif viewer won't read it. Happens sometimes to resized photos.

2.8 sure is nice for shooting through fences at the zoo.
