My Dream Lens

Well, I finally secured my dream lens from eBay for shooting sports photography.....Canon's 300mm F2.8. Although it's the non-IS version, it's in perfect condition, and I'm simply waiting for the next soccer game.

It's awesome. A real powerhouse. I now need to upgrade my mono-pod due to it's weight :)

I must tell you...I'm very, very jealous.

I'm so excited I can't see straight...but I have still not had a chance to use it.

Are there Canon 300mm NON-IS lenses on the market at a lower price than the newer IS model? I cannot find a single one. I assume those that have them are not parting with them. Nice soccer images. I've been debating a 70-200 vs a 300. Your images reminded me how sharp the 300 is the way it freezes the dirt flying. They are stunning images.

Greg......Canon makes either the 300mm f2.8 (IS and the older non-IS) or the 300mm f4 IS. I own the older 300mm f2.8 non-IS lens as well as the f4 IS version. The f2.8 is so sharp, I don't think you need the IS version. It's also so heavy that you need a monpod anyway. I found this beauty on e-bay.
