    I must agree with you Ray, most of my gear comes from Vinnies or Ebay, even secondhand this gear is expensive.

    I know that it is good and well built gear and probably good value for money but I can't justify spending that much on one lens. But if I win a big one in Lotto that would change the game completely. :)

    I gave up on Lotto years ago, I just go through one day at a time with what a crappy pension allows but by using what little I have I also have had to learn a lot more about Photography to get better results and you would possiley be in the same boat when it comes to your photography

    Whats sad is i think my 2.8 IS retailed a few hundred higher when I got it a almost a decade ago, right before the II came out (which having the replacement come out shortly after was irritating).

    I have the F/4L non-IS myself, love it, but I don't think I'd be upgrading...

    I used to have the 2.8 IS back around 2005, didn't care for it because I was always at 200 and never used the shorter focal lengths. So I opted for a 300 f4L IS and a 200 2.8 non IS black model and still had change left over from the sale of the 70-200. I would like to add that the 200 with 1.4 Canon TC is an amazing combination.

    What kind of photos are you taking with the 300 f4L?

    You caught the action perfectly. Very sharp.
