Somebody is selling this lens, he worked with it on a 20D.

I would like to use it for planespotting. I now use my Sigma 70-300 F/4.0-5.6 APO Macro II Super for that, but often I get really soft images at 300mm when the weather does not allow me to stop down over F8.0...

I want to use it on my 300D and am planning to buy 20D or higher in the future...

Do not find a lot on the internet on this, because that lens has 3 versions, and almost no non-resized testimages to find...

Would this be a smart thing to buy this lens? Anyone knows the current selling price (new and second hand) for this lens?

I am looking into this lens aswell, I was also looking at the 70-300 you have,I don't know the used price but B&H has this lens (the 400mm) for 599 dlls


but its for Minolta (wich I use)

a guy is selling it locally to me at 350 dlls, maybeI will buy it from him

but i just don't know if i need 400mm just yet

sorry i have no extra info except that if you search in pbase.com you can find some pohots taken with this lens.
