Re: Just got my 70-300, I'm impressed

I'm really on the fence about buying this lens. I have the 50-140 with the 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverter. But, I'm finding I need more reach at times for wildlife. Yes, I know the 2.0x is not as sharp as the 1.4x.

I can't justify the 100-400mm cost for my amateur work. So that isn't on the table for me. I wish it was.

One of the hesitations on the 70-300 is the build quality vs. the 50-140mm. The second hesitation is will I be happy with the quality of the 70-300 (with and without the 1.4x teleconverter) vs the 50-140mm (with and without the 1.4x teleconverter)?

If I purchased the 70-300mm I would use it mostly with my XH-1 and occasionally with my XPro3 with a grip of course.

Anyone out there familiar with the 50-140mm and the 70-300mm? I await the group's wisdom  The darn thing is in my order basket!
