I have recently picked up a Canon EF 300mm F2.8L IS USM Lens, and today I discuss some of my first impressions, including having shot with the 1.4X and 2X Extenders. This is the forum post I mention with the 100% crops of the example images: http://www.martinbaileyphotography.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1765 To see all images shot with the Canon EF 300mm F2.8L IS USM, use this link: http://www.martinbaileyphotography.com/thumbnails.php?album=search&narrowdown=lens&search=Canon%20EF%20300mm%20F2.8L%20IS%20USM This link will take you to the lens on the Canon US Web site: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=154&modelid=7317 Note there is a lens cap listed under the accessories for this lens on the Canon Web site, but looking at the other lenses that it fits, I don't see how it can fit the 300mm F2.8, unless it is a variable size lens cap of some kind. If anyone knows anything about this, please do let me know and I'll update this information.
