Canon EF 300MM f/4L IS USM

Glad I chose this one...mostly for lighter weight than the 400 f/5.6 and also the IS. The bokeh is a dream! Wanted it for catching birds and also for the nice close focus for "macro" shots (4.9 feet) I love the bokeh! (Arrived May 4, 2006) Please note: Most bird and squirrel pictures have been shot through a window or sliding glass door.
