Just heard word of a March 2004 release of the Canon 28-300LIS lens.
I'm still tossing up between the 100-400LIS and the 70-200 f2.8LIS
I wasn't considering the EF 35-350mm f/3.5-5.6L USM because I am a huge fan of IS (perfect for holding those 300mm+ shots).
I have this link:
as my only info, and it's not even in English.
I was wondering if anyone had heard any further information on this lens.
I think the only drawback is that combining this lens with a 1.4 will certainly give me the reach of the 100-400, but without auto focus on the 10D.
I was quite shocked to use a 300D that managed to auto-focus with my 75-300 f4-5.6 and a 2x teleconvertor. Not the best results, granted... but the maximum aperture fell well short of the 5.6 required on the 10D for auto focus.
Is this one area the 300D was improved?
