Its a stability issue. The lens on a tripod should be rock steady. The 300 f4 isn't, with the tripod foot will flex just slightly... Using a remote release, may alleviate the problem in some instances,  but the mirror, going thru its motion of lifting, could also cause a problem. It's sounds worse than it is, but it is a consideration.

Rich, Sounds like an issue that will not deter me from buying this lens when I am ready for it.  Especially if the price is reduced!  Thanks for explaining.
