V3 and 70-300mm in my cart....what to do?
3 months ago

I've got the new V3 and 70-300mm in my cart, and it should ship in 10 days. I know, as an early adopter, I will basically be a beta tester.

This combo, on paper just seems perfect for bird photography. Right now, I'm using a D7000 and 70-200mm f/2.8 w/ 1.4TC. Just not enough reach, and it's a huge kit. If the V1/70-300 works out, I can sell the 70-200mm and recoup a good portion of the cost.

Am I crazy? Anyone else willing to purchase one before release, and unproven? I'm a click away.
