I'm very curious as to how a non-prime lens with such a huge range costing just over a grand could be money well spent? Since Steve Schmollinger's exit from RP, I have rarely seen a photo accepted to the database taken at a focal length over 200 mm.

Myself - I just purchased a 300 mm Canon F4 lens and could not be happier. It's so much sharper then my 24-105 L (and my 70-200 f/2.8 VI) lens that I am tempted to use only that lens and just step back a hundred yards or two as needed.

Loyd, if you are shooting with Canon, I'll lend you my 2X extender, lol. We can shoot together with out you needing to leave the state! Act quick, however, as I may just toss it in the trash.
