Re: Did you consider EF 16-35/4LIS?

Thank you! I took a closer look at the 16-35 f/4L IS and noticed the substantial difference in cost over the 2.8. And I can apply the savings (and a little bit more) to pick up a EF 100-300 f/4-5.6 tele!!

Just curious - why would you buy a 15 year old (technology) 100-300 that was only rated as "reasonable" back in 2004 ?

Surely a new 70-300 would be a far better option on a budget, or a 100-400L ii if budget is more expansive ?


You're absolutely right Colin....and I do have the 70-300 on my list.  That was my mistake to list it as a 100-300.
