Aug 8, 2012

Kinda weighing my options for a telephoto zoom. Top on the list right now are these two.

Has anyone used either of these two lenses? I realize that getting a 70-200mm f/4 with a 1.4x extender would cost significantly more than just getting a 70-300mm, but I get a kit with the same range but is smaller, faster, and lighter overall. Also, I don't know how an extender might compromise image quality.
