Inexpensive lens on 6D - KR was right
7 months ago

I read on Ken Rockwells' site that the 6D can give old lenses a new lease of life.

As I have upgraded to full frame and had no EF telephoto I thought I would pickup a used , old telephoto lens I saw cheap online. I paid $80US for a 20 year old ef 100-300 f4.5-5.6 USM lens before launching into a much more expensive option that I might not use much..we'll see.

Here are my test shots taken today on the way home. The birdie shot is so far away at 300mm it is almost 100% crop but not too bad for a lens most reviews say not to use beyond 135mm
