300.

Today I woke up and said, "I am buying a 300 f/2.8." Why? Because I wanted to end my lens collection. I've been eying a 300 for a long time, and couldn't find a used one, and frankly, didn't want a used one. I trekked to Penn Camera, and got their last one.

It's FAST and SHARP and produces a beautiful bokeh. This is one lens I will never regret buying. I cannot wait to throw my 1.4x on it and see how tight I can really get.

I must say, my sports images will suffer for a week until I get used to the fixed focal length, but thats OK with me. I will still be throwing my 70-200 over my shoulder, but this is will be my primary sports lens.

Too bad I had to test it out during a night game tonight. By the way, we won, 14-7. I predicted 18-5, I was pretty close. Cannot wait for Maryland to visit next week, should be a great game, and huge turnout.
