EF 300mm F4L USM

Extremely sharp lens at wide open F4, very fast focusing speed and tracking, especially on a 1D... The beautiful 300F4L shows easily why it is one of the preferred lens amongst both sports and wildlife photographers. It gives a very good compromise between aperture size, overall size/weight and of course... price. A 70-300 at 300mm F5.6 may be abit cheaper, but considering the 300mm, a shutter speed of about 1/400 is required to safely keep off handshake blurs, in any other conditions other than bright daylight, this would be rather had to achieve without using some seriously high iso settings. 300mm F2.8 on the other hand, would of course be nice.. if you can deal with 4-5 times the weight of the 300F4L and 3 times the price as well.

One thing really sweet about this lens is its weight, its way lighter than the 70-200F2.8L, probly similar to the 70-200F4L (not that i feel a significant weight diff between the two). Image quality is fabulous, absolutely nothing to complain about, wide opened at F4 its sharp, very high resolution, highly detailed micro contrast, good saturation and vibrant colours... in short lives to the standard of an L prime lens.
