Comments about Canon EF 300mm f2.8 L IS II USM Lens:
The most optically stunning lens ive ever used.I have used probably most of the best Canon L primes over the years including the MKI version of this lens.The sharpness of this lens is just obscene; the difference between 2.8 and 5.6 is practically 0, IE comparing both images at 200% in DPP with zero sharpening look identical!.utterly amazing lens.My copy is almost as good as the native lens with the inclusion of the 2x TC III wide open! Seriously! this 600mm f/5.6 L IS lens wide open is possibly the second sharpest L ive used at any aperture!It's expensive, yes, but TBH it is proportional to the quality which is world class.If you want a fantastic 300mm and an equally fantastic 600mm both of which i never stop down get this lens! Its just fantastic.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Many years ago I bought a Canon 300mm 2.8l lense from Wex. [...] Now I have just bought the MK11 model which is absolutely unreal. The image quality is stunning, and it's built like a tank.Yes the price tag is a little scary,almost like a second mortgage to most, but if you are truly into photography just find a way to get one 'cause its a must have[...] Plus I am now SKINT!!!

I have had this lens since the end of September and I am using it quite frequently mainly for wildlife photography. It is a great piece of kit and it is of course extremely sharp (if you don't have one of the affected 7Ds anyway - like me). It has the most amazing depth of field, it is pin sharp even at f/2.8. It is extremely well built and the front glass element almost seems to clean itself. I have had to clean the glass once since I have owned it. The auto-focus speed is incredible and its low light performance on a good body is superb. Of course it is not a particularly light lens but it is superbly balanced and one can hand hold it relatively comfortably. I got some great images with it in Kenya and I am looking to start filming with it too.I shall give a more in depth review of it once the summer season has come & gone and I have used it everyday for a couple of months.
