Re: Canon 28-300 L IS usm right choice?

I'm using 28-300 L IS not because I "hate changing lenses", but because I would hate to miss a shot while having to change them. Typical examle of such a situation can be found in my locked gallery on

which you can open if you read the instructions below bio (warning - sensitive content). The lens is not and cannot be as good as a prime, but comes very close and is usable for many different situations, like macro:

handles direct light source well:

etc. The only thing you'll probably suffer from is its bulk and weight (do you do weight-lifting?).
