Also, is it me - or is the purple fringe unbearable?

Time to move to a new lense I guess... *waiting in new credit card* >=]

Great shot !!

Maybe you don't need to change the lens, if you shoot RAW, you can easily remove most of the chromatic aberrations.

I don't shoot in RAW, I'm a portability nut

This 75-300mm III lense is very poor from what I'm reading about.

the newer 70-300mm USM's are supposed to be much better - even for a budget lense.

I might take the dive into a 70-200 F4L, simply don't know yet.

If you like to shoot wildlife it might not be a good idea to lower your reach from 300 to 200mm.

I hear they take a 1.4TC pretty well though?

I was also thinking of the Sigma 50-500mm

Yes, I've got the Sigma 50-500 on my wish list too.
