I'm considering 300MM f4.0 L IS too
In reply to fordman1, Jun 22, 2012

I've been saving money for the past few years for my 50th birthday present. I've looked at a used 300 2.8 IS. I just don't know if I can afford it. So, used F4L IS has become an option. I have 400 5.6 but sometimes I would need IS and faster shutter speed.

Next week I will test 4L at local store. My worries are:

  • AF speed, non IS was a bit slow some years ago

  • Old 2 stop IS, better than nothing but is it good enough?

Anyway, if I choose to take 4L, it still has good resale value after a couple of years, when I might have the money for 2.8 IS.
