Canon EF300 f/2.8 IS
« on: June 14, 2009, 09:16:22 AM »
I've hired a 300mm f2.8 this weekend to use at a photoshoot in Surrey (British Wildlife Centre) - and it was fantastic!

What a lens - you get what you pay for sometimes in life - and I think this is one of those times.

This is one of the several I took with the lens - this is wide open at f2.8 (Exif is intact!)

WOW, what a cracker.  8) 

I thinks you're right about getting what you pay for when it comes to lenses.  I guess when you hire them at least you get to try them out properly in the too, a great idea if you intend plashing out on a really expensive lens. 

So when are you going to buy one?  :D

When you hire a lens from Jacobs and then decide to buy one, they will knock off the price you paid for the hire.  :tup:

Thanks for the comments! Whilst, the lens is on my wish list, I suspect the wife has other ideas!

Mind you, it could be bought, used for a year or whatever, and be sold for most of what was paid for it. :idea:
