EF 70-300 IS USM vs 100-400 IS L???!
Sep 24, 2008

I have 70-300 IS USM (Non-DO) version which is considered to be a hidden L class lens. Poor man's L lens!! I like it very much and it has 3 stop IS.

I have intense urge to go for 100-400 IS for longer reach and L glass. But there are rumours that it is going to be replaced and the lens is almost 10 years old model now.

I am upgrading to 50D for its low light capability and higher MPs. I like wild life and bird photography.

Should I be content with cute 70-300 right now till upgraded version of 100-400 is around? Is there a significant gain in having 100-400 keeping aside the advantage of having longer reach?
