Today I was in my favorite local store picking up some slides made with the store's borrowed Hasselblad X-Pan ( another story for another time) when a lady came in with a large box of gear to put on consingnment. Included was a D-1, a Vr 80-400, a 20mm f 2.8 and a mint 300 F4 ED ( not the new silent model0. It was too much for me, I bought the 300 right out of her hand for $600 USD. I had not researched it, but I figure it has to be better than my 70-300 "G" zoom. Was I wrong? Should I take it back, or, will I love it? I do a lot of nature work, but until lately that has been largely macro and landscape. Now a stirring of iterest in birds, wildlife, etc.
Any thoughts?
