A little over a month of playing with this lens and I'm in love. Great, sharp, fast glass. I have experienced some of the light purple fringing in high contrast light edges but it is minor and requires some serious pixel peeping to see. Very sharp at f/2.8 and in line with the Canon L glass at f/4.0 and up. Lovely creamy background blur/bokeh. Great especially considering the cost to image quality and build ratio.

If you can find the AT-X 300 f/2.8 AF Pro for your mount at a good deal ($850.00 for mine), grab it! You will not be disappointed.

Finally found a Canon mount version last week. Quite a bargain for a HUGE and sharp fast lens. I would say the focus speed is close to my USM 200 f/2.8 L. Bokeh is smooth and creamy and I really like the color rendering. So far it has not left my 1D Mark II but I will give it a run on the 40D and 30D IR soon. In reference to the manual focus ring location issues that I had seen written about in my research, the ring in this completely disengages and then slides back to lock into manual focus. This keeps any accidental focusing from happening for me. Maybe older versions did not have the manual focus clutch. While different from the Canon switch type button, it works well. 112mm front element really captures the light. Filters will be EXPENSIVE.

Bought mine used for AUD1200. No regrets so far. AF is fast on my D300. Lens is sharp and crispy. One of the best value for money 300mm F2.8 on the market.

Strange, so far I have had no problems with any of my Nikon cameras (F-90X, D-100, D-200) Though mine is a bit earlier version I supose, it whas bought back in 98'.

very very strange work with konika-minolta 7D overexposed all time.

Optically it has an outstanding performance even at f:2.8 aldo it gets a bit better closing it too 5.6 or 8 it's contrast is more like a Cannon lens then the Nikon one (less contrast) but I like it better this way. It's not too heavy and it has a very nice price, oh, and it is very well built and strong.
But there are basicaly two problems with it. My verson doesn't have an AF block button, I think that the newest ones doo. However, it is a kind of a bother that the focusing ring tourns when you work in AF... all do it is just question of getting use to it. And it's focusing is slow, sometimes too slow as too do very fast action photos. Now it also comes to my mind the rear filter adaptor, I bought a Shneider warm filter and I had to make it bee slimed because otherwise it didn't enter.

I like the shallow DOF. Just buying this lens myself. Looking forward to shooting with it.
