Re: 75-300mm USM IS (pic)

I haven't used this lens extensively yet, but I've been pleased with the results.

While this isn't a "bird" shot, it illustrates what the lens is capable of under adverse conditions. This was taken at 300mm, f6.3, shutter of 1/50s, hand-held, AND at ISO1600. It's undergone some Noiseware, a bit of levels, but that's about it.

I don't think I'd print it larger than 5x7, but for a 4x6 or 5x7 (or web) "memory", it is pretty good.

This one was also taken with this lens.

Until I can afford the 70-200L f2.8 L and the 100-400L, this one will do me just fine.

I don't have a well calibrated monitor (yet) so the colors may be a bit off. I find that when I print them, they don't look quite "popping". I hope to solve that in the next two weeks.
