    Haven't been here in a while. I put a review up when I first purchased the 70 300 sometime back and since then I have learned a lot on how to use it. My progression with it and using the 510 have been a real learning experience and I still say there is no lens out there for this price that even comes close to what it can do from macro to BIFs. Here's a few shots taken with it.

    Great shots! I've seen what this lens can do. I'm back and forth trying to decide whether it's worth it to cash in my 40-150 (not worth much in cash, but nice lens). It would cost me about $180-$200 more to purchase the 70-300.

    Seeing your images (the 2 birds look 3-D), I'm tempted even more.

    If it's birds you want to shoot then it's worth it. I would like even more reach so for the last 6 months I've been back and forth on either the 50 200 with EC14 or the bigma 50 500. I guess it boils down to what you want to take shots of. You can carry the 70 300 afield with you without getting a neck ache from it, and it has pretty good reach but it is a light hog and takes quite a while to master on BIFs. Like any lens the closer you can get the better the shot normally.
