Re: What would it be used for?

Well I used my Canon 100-400 on a 20D mostly for birding, it was just about long enough when my 'stalking' skills were up to the task or the birds were large enough or for various reasons not too skittish.  I'm thinking that a 300 would be a little short for that on APS-C.  Zoo work and I guess some safari stuff when they drive you up close might work.

I guess it would be long enough to cover a fair amount of a sports field, though you do see a lot of longer lenses.

I'm just curious about that primary uses of that range.
