Re: I missed the part where Canon claimed this was a birding lens

You think so? The soccer parents I know are using 70-200mm f/2.8’s and complain about lenses like the Sigma and Tamrons that only go to f/6.3. F/7.1’s even a notch slower.

Not me. I'm a soccer grandparent now. When I pull out my EF400DOII, people look at their 70-300 (5.6 or 6.3) non L and ask me if I'm some kind of an extreme pro (I'm not). 200 is extremely short for soccer. The main reason I originally bought the EF400/2.8LIS back in 2004 was so I could use the TC and shoot at 800/5.6 for soccer. The field is larger than a football field and the action moves around very quickly.
