'300mm' is not 'gigantic zoom'. (it's a moderately gigantic prime) You might wish to determine precisely the model of the lens being used before going any further.

If the lens in question is an EF 28-300 f/3.5-5.6L IS USM, it's a full-frame equivalent of the 18-200, and is pretty huge.

If you know, why would you choose a 300 or a 200 for that matter over a wide angle?

It's funny that while you insult everyone in this thread, you are the only one that doesn't know why longer focal lengths re more idea for portraits than perspective distorting wide angles. A few people have already answered this question, but I hope no one else does because watching you get defensive and ignore the answers is more entertaining.

Good Wide Angle Lense.  Try that one out, K pumpkin?
