Got a white elephant

Photos added on page 2










Yep, got the 70-200 F4L. Thanks to phuvanio for bringing me to redflagdeals, I didn't get the one you linked, but from another buyer, I got a amazing deal it,and still have the warranty for a year. Haven't used it to much, but once I get some good photos, Ill post some... Planning ahead, sooner or later I'm going to get the Extender, not sure which one yet.

Paid a even $500 for it! ...and not try to compensate for anything lol, it was between this and the canon 70-300is, which is smaller/less noticeable, but in the end this seems to be the better choice for over all quality. (not dissing the other lens, its a good lens). And I hear only good things about the L...

Hope you have more money in your pockets, because you are not going to want to shoot with anything else besides "L" lenses now.

Sorry,I have used this lens a lot in the last little bit, I'm in the middle of getting rid of this computer and getting a new one (tomorrow), this computer is slowly burning out and it takes forever to put stuff on here, but as soon as I get my shat hooked up, Imma upload some shots. BTW im loving this lens...
