    I feel it's an excellent lens, if a teeny bit soft at the long end, wide
    open.

    Just bought one and here are the some of the results of my first outing with
    the lens. All of these were done hand held using my Canon 300D.

    http://www.pbase.com/rkircher/image/40530840 400mm
    http://www.pbase.com/rkircher/image/40530841 100mm

    The rest of the Gallery was shot with the 100-400 varied focal lengths.

    Some other pics

    This is one of my personal favorites

    I think the my results are somewhat varied but I don't think that's due to
    the lens. I'm sure it has more to do with the photographer (note I
    neglected to check the ISO before shooting and left the camera at 800 -
    :-/ ) and the fact that this was my first time using a lens as long as the
    100-400. As with anything new, some practice may be required. ;-)

    Thanks for the links and the great samples. Have you noticed any problems
    with color fringing on the edges of any of your tests?

    About all I've had time to do with the pics we run then through Capture One,
    reduce their size, and post them to PBase. Short of that I haven't even
    looked at the pics.
