Re: 75-300 refurbished for $359

the 75-300 mk2 is a superb value for money lens which I have produced many excellent images from but for my use its shortcoming are

- no IS

- too short

-not water sealed

Which is why I went to the PL100-400 (after experimenting with the sigma 150-600C via metabones)

The zoom problems + hood failure + poor / non-existent customer service (I believe it is now better?) resulted in that being ditched

So, for me the 100-400 meets my specific need, whoever designed it and the fact it is "plastic on metal" construction is irrelevant (my judgements should in no way influence anyone else) each to there own choice

So much to learn, so little time left to do it!
