Does anyone have an "evaluation" on the 100-300 lens? Yes, I know it is an old lens but---. Thanks

Yes an old lens, and not talked about much. It is not a small lens, but it is VERY sharp and quite nicely contrasty. And it focuses quite nicely down to about 11 inches. But at f5.6 it is just not fast enough for me. I've replaced mine with a faster 300, and I already have the 80-200 f2.8. If I didn't have the 80-200 I would certainly keep the 100-300. Mine will be going up for sale soon, but I will miss it.
