do you think the new Canon 28-300 L IS lens is any good for aviation photography. Is the quality comparable with the 100-400 L lens...
I almost bought a 100-400 L lens to replace my current 75-300 IS lens, but as I have also the 28-135 IS lens I really like the idea of the 28-300 which mean that I don't have to change lenses anymore (reduce the risk of sensor dust).
Any opinions or experiences with that lens? I know is more expensive than the 100-400.
As always, thanks for your help in advance.

I am very interested in that lens too, I am not sure if it's out on the market here in Sweden yet but I really hope so.
It's a great range for aviation photography, especially at airports like

The sample i tested was soft and suffered from chromatic aberration. 100-400 is of a much higher quality than this! This lens is pretty much designed for travel photographers who shoot in harsh condition and cant afford to change lenses a lot!
It is nowhere near as sharp as a 100-400/70-200! Very overpriced also! I would only get this if it was priced at Â£500ish.
