    I just got my ‘EF 300 F/2.8 L IS’ in yesterday and these are the very first shots I’ve taken with it.
    I didn’t have much time to play with it due to getting home from work late yesterday evening but did managed to find a couple subjects to try it out on.
    This lens has already become my favorite, it is fast & sharp!!!!
    #1 & #2 shot w/ 2X Extender @ F/5.6 @ 600mm.....
    #3, #4, & #5 straight out of lens F/2.8 @ 300mm
    Canon 5DII & HSS Flash

    Great shots...especially the ants. I'm assuming those are classic red ants?

    Yes, I also call them a HUGE PAIN!

    It's also ironic that as much as I loathe and hate red ants, they are oddly pretty in your photo...almost appearing as if filled with amber honey. Alas, I have some new angry red welts that assure me that they are not filled with honey! :x

    Seems your relationship with red ants is the same as mine with wasps and hornets. *hands Barking Mad some RAID* :hug::

    Great shots, but there is no way you shot @ f/2.8 with a 2x telelconverter attached.

    Congrats on the new lens. I would love to get one for rodeo events.

    #1 Is GREAT! Ive got a ton of humming bird pictures taken with my 500mm f/8 (wish I had a niece long fast peice of glass...all ive got is 50mm f/1.8)
    Id try using shutter speed priority and shoot at 1/4000 second....that freezes the wings enough that they arent a blur...but are still blurred...it looks cool, give it a shot next time you can! Or even cooler, try 1/8000, it almost completely freezes the wings (Unless my hand was shaking....I was shooting handheld)

    #2 is great, but its over saturated.

    #3 is really cool...its a lot of brown in the picture...but its a cool shot.

    #4 I dont personaly like it all to much, but its a prety cool shot. The look on the birds face is wierd.

    #5 is great! Only suggestion is use a smaller aperture so all the ants are in focus.

    I'm not a huge fan of the bird pictures for composition reasons, but the ants picture is fantastic!! :)
