Re: Canon EF 300mm f/4 USM L IS

Do you use the lens for anything else other than bird photography ? If your main use is bird photography I would doubt you'd miss the zoom.

I use a the Canon 300 F4 IS L USM for shooting birds and have not found myself too close yet. I normally have a 1.4 MKIII converter on as well for a bit more reach for the smaller birds.

Got mine second hand from ffordes.

Only a large bird (eg pigeon sized + real, real close would be an issue where a zoom might be needed). I find this does not occur v often at all.
